Easing back into blogging... 

Couple of things that need to be said. 

1. The HOT DOUGHNUTS sign at Krispy Kreme is a HYPNOTIC device and of the DEVIL. I'm certain of it. Don't ask me how I know. 

2. Krispy Kreme needs to redesign their doughnut boxes if EVERY.TIME. SOMEONE goes to open them, they give themselves a paper cut. That's on YOU K.K. ... and I'm pretty sure said person will cease supporting your establishment if a redesign is not at least in the works sometime soon.

But don't hold SOMEONE to that.

3.Someone needs to let SUPER FRIENDLY,ADORABLE, PEOPLE LOVING, TALK TO EVERYONE THEY MEET 4YEAR OLDS know that they don't need to SHARE EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS in their life, or the lives of their loved ones with COMPLETE STRANGERS. Eg. SHARING WITH THE CHECK-OUT LADY and the long GROCERY LINE behind you, that your mom had TWO DOUGHNUTS for lunch. Completely UNNECESSARY and NOT Productive in the least. They should know. If you are THEIR mother, please send them the memo.

Just a few things that needed to be said.
That is all.

Eyes Wide Open


If you say, "But we knew nothing about this, " does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay each person according to what he has done? 

Eyes Wide Open International exists to advocate, mobilize, and encourage the body of Christ to care for, love on and make a difference in the lives of the widows, the orphans, and least, the lost and the forgotten. 

 Please check Nicolle's ministry   
And to learn more about her heart for these kiddos, and the story behind her ministry, read this article.

For you were called to freedom, brothers.  

                                                 Only do not use your freedom
                                                  as an opportunity for the flesh, 
                                                 but through love serve one another."
                                                              ~ Galatians 5:13

Hang on little ones, Mama's comin' !!  
Thursday, December 1, 2011


When God revealed to us early this year that we would be be blessed with the gift of bringing home two little ones, he also showed us that unlike the other times, this time we would be Fundraising.

You have to know, that each time we started our adoption, we stepped out in Faith despite not having the funds to adopt.  God promised to provide, and each time HE did.  Whether it was through a series of unexpected checks that came in the mail, cutbacks in the budget, found forgotten AAA gift cards from when we got married that we were able to put towards a plane ticket, an unexpected grant that we didn't even seek out, or a Generous and Unexpected gift from a family member.  Each time, He ALWAYS provided. Every. last. cent.

So this time, when he asked us to step out in Faith once again, we had complete Faith that HE would provide.  And when he revealed to us that this time we would be publicly fundraising, we were caught by surprise.  That is totally out of my comfort zone. There are SO many little ones that need to come home, and so many families trying to find ways to find the funds to make it happen.  Doing anything that might take away from something someone else might be doing to bring their little one home goes against my every being.

But God revealed to me that it is not about ME. And not about US.  But rather it is about THEM. And HIM.  And the story He wants to tell about HIS heart for the orphans through us sharing our story.

So this fundraising is not only about bringing these two little ones home, OUR little ones. But it is also about  sharing Kai and Sophie Lu's stories in the hopes that others eyes and hearts might be opened to the needs of those who still wait.

And so we fundraise. To bring our two little ones home, and to hopefully be used to plant seeds so that others might find their forever families.

So with that, we would like to direct you to

We hope you will stop by and take a moment to let us share our hearts with you.  If you peek around you will find many ways that YOU can play a part in helping us to LOVE THEM HOME.

For starters, my home girls over at Wild Olive tees, helped to create this beautiful "God is love" tee to help us bring Kai and Sophie Lu home.

                                                 And so we rely on the love God has for us.
                                                                          God is love.
                                            Whoever lives in love lives in God and God in them
                                                                          1 John 4:16

Our "God is love" Wild Olive tee, is available in Fitted Sizes S-XL, Classic Sizes S-2XL, and Youth 4-10.
     You can get your hands on one of these beautiful "God is love" tees at

We also have available for purchase this beautiful Hand Stamped Sterling Silver " God is love" Necklace, created with LOVE by my AWESOME sister!

This beautiful Sterling Silver  Stamped Medallion is accented with a freshwater pearl, and comes with an 18" Silver Ball chain.  Wouldn't this be perfect to gift to someone special this Christmas?  Also available at

You should also check out this beautiful personalized art Created by Colleen to help bring Kai and Sophie Lu  home.

Upon purchase, Colleen will personalize the art per your specifications, and will then email you a high resolution jpeg file, formatted to 14 x 11.  This can be used for printing on note cards, canvas, or just about anything.  Love that Colleen is using her mad creative skills to help us bring our little ones home!

          The body of Christ moving to bring two little ones who wait,  home to their forever family!

                                                           WE ARE BLESSED!

We hope you will visit us at, take a peek around and learn how YOU can help us to LOVE THEM HOME!

     Thanks so much for ANY part you will play in helping us to bring them home!  Whether it be through prayer, helping us to speed the word about LOVE THEM HOME, or through a donation. It all matters, and it WILL make a difference.  Thank you. You are a blessing to us!
