Ann and I want to extend our deepest and most sincere gratitude to all of you for your support throughout this journey. The amount of encouragement, financial support, response to the blog, and prayer we have received throughout the last several weeks and months has been so amazing. Basically, YOU are amazing. Thank you for being our people.
We’d like to extend a special thank you to our dear friend Jana Pecinovsky (with support from Carl, of course!) who has generously given her time and talent to help us fundraise through her beautiful hand-made signs. Jana and Carl are small-business owners as well, and so at this time, all sales of her signs will continue to support our adoption, AND (and this is new, friends!) proceeds from their honey and beeswax will also go to supporting us. WOW! I can’t believe what a gift this is! You can learn more and find the links to all of this information below.
Our next major payment will be in mid-to-late January totalling about $7000. In the past few weeks, we have continued to receive generous donations, including those from the sign sale mentioned above, so we are making progress. As it stands today, we still need about $4800 in additional funds.
For our part, we have been busy applying for grants and hope that those will help us get to our final goal. However, even if we are chosen to receive funding, this next payment is due before any of these grants pay out. So we are sharing the need at this time.
We are praying that God will provide for all that we need, and choosing to trust that He will.
Thank you for your part in this process, whether that has been through giving, through prayer, or by supporting us in whatever way you have!
Know also that we will be sharing lots of thoughts on this adoption through the blog, not just money updates. Thanks for hanging with us through this one.

(Jana will be continuing the fundraiser, called The Psalm 82:3 Project, for other worthy causes in the future. So...support local business AND good causes even if it’s not this one!)
We are Brian, Ann, Kennedy, Rowyn, and Silas. (For now!) We're on a journey to adopt. You can follow along through this blog as we share our hearts and our tales of the process.
