The purpose of this blog was to document our adoption journey and all of the blessings and challenges that it entailed. Now that Johnny is safe at home, I will not be posting as regularly on this blog and will continue to post updates about our family of four on our family blog. I may still use this blog from time to time to post questions or thoughts about adoption but it probably won't see much activity. Thank you for following our adoption and if you would like to continue to follow our family go to:
As many of you know, the cost of adoption is very high and will be impossible for us to complete without humbly asking for help. We have partnered with the Abba Fund to allow for tax deductible donations to help bring our child home. If you would like to help us in this way, please click on the link above. A donation can be made with a check or credit card*. If you choose to contibute by credit card please indicate "PELL FAMILY FUND" when it asks for "Partnership Fund Designation". If you send a check, you can send the check to us and we will make sure it gets where it needs to go. Thank you so much for your support. *The Abba Fund charges a 3% service fee for credit card transactions.
