We are Adopting our Daughter!

By Jacquie Garner 0 Comment March 10, 2021

After all the excitement of finding out we were really chosen to adopt a precious girl and figuring out how to get there, we finally arrived in Tampa Florida! We were still in shock, it all was happening so fast! We just couldn’t believe after waiting 1 and 1/2 years of trying to adopt domestically, […]

March 3, 2020 was an ordinary day of work and school for our family.  Well, it was a special day I that it was Daddy’s 50th birthday. We didn’t have any big plans for him, just a quiet birthday surprise with the kids at supper.   We also got an email that morning about 8 am.  A little girl […]

A Baby Girl

By Jacquie Garner 0 Comment March 7, 2021

Summer of 2019 we started our adoption plan.  We started fundraising and joined an adoption consulting agency.  We did our homestudy, made our family profile book, and did all the to do lists! We started getting situations of children in need of adoption.  We would present and then not get chosen.  That happened eleven times.  It was hard, it was […]

Waiting and Hoping

By Jacquie Garner 0 Comment May 7, 2020

All journeys can be long.  Adoption journeys are no exception.  And because it’s such an emotional experience it usually feels very long.   With the COVID-19 crisis, it kinda felt like our adoption plans all went on hold.  And in some ways they did.    The fundraising plans we had all came to a stop.  […]

Car accidents are not something most of us would want to have happen. Of course if no one is hurt, we all are extremely grateful and all try to find the positive side of it. However, they still are costly and time consuming. This last week Greg had a minor car accident. (He was not […]

We have nothing to fear for the future, except if we forget how God has led us in the Past.

I used to go on mission trips frequently when I was in my 20’s. When I got out of Nurse practitioner school I volunteered at Malamulo Hospital in Malawi Africa for 5 months. For each of these experiences I always had enough money to make it work out. I remember being 21 years old and […]

The Financial Cost – It’s so worth it!

By Jacquie Garner 0 Comment February 3, 2020

One of the biggest fears about adopting for us was the financial cost. We decided we didn’t want to be paralyzed by the fear of the financial side, and that its not about what we can do, but its about what God can do.   The truth is, adoption is expensive. The average domestic infant adoption cost in the United […]

Making Progress

The last time I blogged I was so overwhelmed with the check list in front of me. Doing a home study is not for the faint of heart! Getting the email saying it was all done and the notarized copy was coming in the mail, was one very exciting day!!! I literally jumped for joy! […]

Beginning the Process

By Greg 0 Comment September 7, 2019

Awhile ago we announced we started our adoption journey.  We haven’t said much since then.  Honestly, Im not much of a writer.  I love to talk to people and share my story and listen to theirs.  But writing words down on paper is hard for me.  I’ve met people recently and they’ve asked me, “how […]
