Hey friends!  Remember when when we introduced you to our friends, the Gully family? Through a few of us blasting their story, God gave this family the finances they needed to legally adopt their 6 girls! Wow!  So, the dreamer dreamer girls are at it again.  One of our own, Sarah Stephan, and her family are adopting a sweet little boy from China.  The cool thing is, we all know this little one. He is already loved & cherished & we need to help this precious family bring their son home!

Oh My goodness! I don't even know where to start.

There is this amazing little man who spent six weeks with us this past summer, who stole our hearts, and showed us what it's like for a child from across the world to come to a new place, experience new things & quickly learn that there are people who love him. We heard about hosting program's from our friends the Patterson's who had hosted 2 little boys. The hubs & I briefly discussed it and thought it would be an amazing way to share the love of Christ with a child. Fast forward.... While attending the Summit Conference in Nashville I walked past a booth for New Horizon's for Children, an international hosting program for orphaned children. As my eyes scanned the 200+ prayer cards I saw one little face, read his bio, text my husband & 20 minutes later we were approved to host this precious little boy. It was cool, it was crazy & it was God. It was such an incredible blessing to our family to be able to love on this little guy and include him as a family member. I HIGHLY recommend hosting. After a fun-filled 6 weeks we traveled as a family to Dallas with a sad little boy, a bag of all his belongings & a stuffed monkey and tearfully watched him wave goodbye to us as he walked through security. My heart could hardly stand the thought of never seeing him again. And now my heart is bursting at the seams as I follow our dear friends who have said YES to adopting him! Eeekk!! He. Has. A . Family. Coming for HIM!

Please consider being a part of this adoption story. This is an amazing family, with amazing hearts & an incredible love for God. Let's get this little man home so he can get the medical care he needs & join his FOREVER Family!
