 Christmas is just around the corner, and you need a family photo for your Christmas card! Some of you may want to give photos as gifts! Others may just need an updated family photo for your living room! Whatever your reason for photos, this is the fundraiser for you! You won't find a better price for great photos, and you are helping us become one step closer to our forever family.
Jeffrey and I are booking 1 hour photo shoots beginning as early as September. We will be shooting through the month of November. All shoots will take place outside unless you have an available inside location that you prefer. Spots are limited due to our availability, so please book with us as soon as possible.

All the photos on this post are from some recent shoots we have done. Thank you to the wonderful families who helped us get this fundraiser started and who have allowed us to share some of their photos.

They are going to discuss wait times, PAIR (which is the new step to the Ethiopia adoption process that will start in October), and referrals (being matched to a child). Since our adoption agency is on the East Coast and the call is at 3 p.m., Jeffrey and I will still be at work. We will have to wait for our adoption agency to email use the recording of the call instead of listening to it live. Although I am very interested to find out what they have to say, I am dreading this call. Please pray we hear some good ne…

Wait by Russel Kelfer

Wait Desperately, helplessly, longingly, I cried. Quietly, patiently, lovingly, He replied. I pleaded, and I wept for a clue to my fate, And the Master so gently said, "Child, you must wait."
"Wait? You say wait?" my indignant reply. "Lord, I need answers, I need to know why. Is your hand shortened?  Or have you not heard? By faith I have asked, and I'm claiming your Word.
"My future, and all to which I can relate Hangs in the balance, and you tell me 'wait'? I'm needing a 'yes', a go-ahead sign, Or even a 'no', to which I can resign.
"And Lord, you have promised that if we believe,  We need but ask, and we shall receive. And Lord I've been asking, and this is my cry: "I'm weary of asking: I need a reply!"
Then quietly, softly, I learned of my fate As my Master replied once again, "You must wait." So I slumped in my chair; defeated and taut And grumbled to God; "So I'm waiting, for what?"
