We are very thankful this Thanksgiving season as we are in the process of adopting a beautiful 5 year old little girl from Ethiopia. After receiving approval from immigration we were able to review her information. The night before, we were praying about her and our adoption when Eli asked us to read the story of Deborah in his children's bible. The following morning we got her picture and found out that her name is Dibora which is the Ethiopian version of Deborah! (Her full name will be Acacia Dibora Lain). We are hoping to travel as early as February! The sooner the better!!!
We have been diligently writing grants for this adoption. The adoption will cost around 30,000 dollars total. We have paid 15,000 thus far from savings and we are believing that by His grace He will provide an additional 15,000 dollars through grants and donations from friends and family to be able to bring her home.
If you would like to join us in caring for orphans and help us bring our daughter home, http://www.thelains.blogspot.com now have a Donate Button on our blog page, www.thelains.blogspot.com, that you can use to make a donation via Paypal.
We are VERY thankful for all of you !!! We appreciate your prayers for patience, grace, perseverance, and provision as we wait! We are so thankful for the calling of God on our lives to care for orphans and to bring the good news of the Kingdom with us wherever we go...even to the ends of the earth in Mongolia! We really couldn't do it without you holding us up! We love you all and thank you for your sacrifices of prayer and financial support for His work in our lives overflowing onto others!
May we all praise Him on Thanksgiving day and everyday for the wonderful things He has done. Our King is enthroned on our praises! Thank Him for this awesome Holiday season!
