~Psalm 86:12~

“I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart, and I will glorify your name forever.”


Dear Ones,

It is with great excitement that we announce the receipt of our log-in-date (LID)!!  That is our official notice that China has logged our dossier in with the CCCWA, China’s governing authority for adoptions.  It is another crucial milestone completed in the long process of adopting our boy.  We are a huge step closer to bringing Silas James home!!  Yay!!

We are now approximately 4-5 months from traveling to China.  The Lord has been so gracious to us in His financial provision of this adoption.  To our surprise, we have received most of our funding through the yard sale we held in the Spring and adoption grants.  We give all the thanks and praise to our mighty God that does indeed go before us!

We still need to raise $8,500 to complete Silas’s adoption.  We covet your prayers for the Lord’s continuing provision in this regard.  If you would like to help us bring Silas home by giving through a tax deductible account, please see below.

We also ask for your prayers for Silas’s physical and emotional development, his upcoming transition into our home, and our ability to address and meet his medical needs.  Please do remember Rick and Ryle as they begin to make preparations for traveling to China.  Due to the ongoing emotional needs of the girls and Grandpa coming to live with us, I am unable to travel this time.  My heart longs to be where my new Son is, but I’m more needed here.  Do pray for contentment for me.

Much love to you all!

To give to our adoption:

1. Please make the check payable to: Lifesong for Orphans

2. In the memo portion of the check, write “Kelley – 5326”.
