The Kids are OK
Baby Steps: An Adoption Update
I share this on Father's Day in the hopes that it might be some small glimmer of encouragement to those for whom this day is marked with grief.
Brand New Chosen Ambigram Tee!
If there's one thing I've learned from this adoption process so far is that it's a collection of steps to get us to an end. Baby steps, not giant steps.
Adoption Milestone Reached!
We just launched a new fundraiser for our adoption from Poland in the form of this t-shirt featuring the word "Chosen" as an ambigram. It reads the same right-side-up and upside-down! You can get them at https://www.bonfire.com/chosen-ambigram-tee/
Thanks to a number of donations (and our own meager efforts), the Lord has provided the funds needed to cover our adoption application fee, the first agency fee, and now the second agency fee!
By the grace of God and his provision through the generosity of his children we've met our goal for our first agency fee!
I'm Thankful For...
Ron and I were officially welcomed into the Lifeline Children's Services Poland program this afternoon, which means the newest Ottlings will be coming from the beautiful country of Poland!
On Thanksgiving, a reflection on the many blessings that God has bestowed upon us.
I attended a private Christian school in our small town as a child. After my fifth grade year my mom pulled me and my younger brother and sister out of school to begin teaching us at home.
