Family Friday: “…more & more in love…”

Thankful to share yet another story of God’s faithfulness of setting the lonely into a family. We were blessed to partner with Greg & Angie as they organized a Both Hands Project to raise funds for the adoption of their new daughter Joy, from China. Please join us in prayer for this family who chose to grow their family through adoption! Thank God for his steadfast love in adopting each of us! There have been many challenges throughout our adoption process. We are finally moving past survival mode and are growing more and more in love with our daughter, Joy, every day. We cannot imagine going through the process without the help of Both Hands and Lifesong and the many, many prayers of our friends and family. We are so thankful for Joy and we can’t imagine life without her in our family. We are thankful for the help we … Continue reading

Jehovah Jireh – The Lord Will Provide

No, it’s not Friday…but we always love sharing some of our adoption stories with you–no matter the day of the week! Meet the Ruggards: The Ruggard family brought home little Tripp this past April from Ethiopia.  Lifesong was able to provide them with a matching grant and also assisted in their fundraising efforts.       What a huge blessing it was to partner with your ministry in our adoption journey.  Lifesong not only provided a $2,500 gift, but also the encouragement to send adoption support letters to our family and friends.  Without this encouragement we may never have allowed God to provide through our family and friends the funds needed to finance our adoption.  –Ruggards Thanks Ruggard family for sharing your heart and your journey with us.  It’s amazing for us to be able to see our God, the Ultimate Provider work in your lives!! “And my God will meet all … Continue reading

Inexpressible and Glorious Joy

Welcome to another Family Friday! We recently received a note from the Dinn family updating us on their family since the adoption of their daughter Joy from China this past May.  Lifesong had the pleasure of partnering with the Dinn’s in assisting with their fundraising efforts to bring home their little Joy.         We want to thank those who so freely and sacrificially gave so that we could bring our daughter home.  We know that it takes many people giving from their hearts and we are grateful.  Joy continues to do remarkably well and we are so blessed to have her in our family! –Clayton, Angie & family Thanks Dinn family for keeping us posted on your family…we love hearing (& seeing!) from you.  We pray that God continunes to fill your family with an inexpressible and glorious joy as you continue towards the goal of your faith…the salvation of … Continue reading
