How is it that God sees fit to bless us until our cup is overflowing?

Luke 6:38
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down,
shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.
For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

Words cannot express the gratitude I have for so many who
have contributed to bringing Brighton home.

You have blessed our family beyond overflowing!

Romans 15:13
May the God of hope fill you with all joy
as you trust in Him,
so that you may overflow with hope
by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Below you will see a new chip-in for Brighton's adoption funding.
We are still at least 5,000.00 short for the mandatory orphanage fee.
I am hoping that this newest campaign--- BALD FOR BRIGHTON--- will spur some of you on to donate to our adoption.
We adopt because we are called to it by God. Brighton is our fourth adoption in five years and we have been so blessed by our children and those that have helped us along the way to bring them home.
Adoption is no small task and the money is only one part.
PLEASE consider a 10, 25, 50, (or any amount) donation to our little girl.
***If you want a tax deduction***
Please mail your check to

A photo of Brighton--

A Birthday party for Stefani ---

This was just posted by my agency CHina representative and friend, Stefani--
thank you---

I think we need a birthday party, don't you?! It is my 45th birthday tomorrow on 3/30 and I share it with some of our delightful CHI children. There will be lots of presents, cake and frosting to be sure for many of us. But one of them is still waiting to get home and her family needs a little help in collecting the funds. She is still waiting for her turn to be Belle of the Ball.

I would really, truly, expressly love it to see us have a birthday party that would bring some cheer to our cyber family and funds for Brighton's adoption fund.

Can we see a huge donation of cheer? I bet we sure can! To put on a party we need decorations. Who can help? What we'll do is donate the money and figuratively decorate our ballroom. Please look at the price list and see what you can contribute! We'll need LOTS of decorations so pick what you can help with. If you can think of anything else I missed make sure to let the group know.

Balloons $5
Streamers $5
Punch $10
Party Hats $10
Party Blowers $10
Gift Bags $20
Presents $20
Disco Ball $50
Multi tied Birthday Cake, each tier is $ many tiers high can we built it???

I know we can have the Ball of the Year!! Lets see just how much fun we can create. When you have "purchased" your item, please post to let us know so we can all imagine our glittering ballroom.

PLEASE dig deep to help Zac!

Adoption means stepping out of our comfort zone.

I have a friend online that reached
far out of her comfort zone to accept
a child with a limb difference.
This little boy bounced from one waiting
child list to another before he captured
Lisa's heart. After a rough trip through
Ch*ina, the family is home and heading into
a season of trials concerning Zac's medical

Lisa is head over heels in love with her new son and
she will go to the ends of the earth for him.
Right now, she is fighting devestating medical diagnosis
and an insurance company she has had to fight every step of the way.
Family is far away and she is feeling an incredibly
large hole being created day by day in medical expenses..

Brighton's Village is ready to stand in the gap for Lisa and Zac!
I am posting a chip-in link to help the family financially.

No, we are not a non-profit so I cannot offer you a tax deduction.
Yes- you have to trust me that I will forward all monies to Lisa.

PLEASE-- a dollar or two can buy a burger or a much needed cup of Joe.
She NEEDS help and I know BV will help her!

I will keep everyone abreast of Zac's progress as Lisa meets with the teams
of doctors. He will be seeing neurosurgery, genetics, orthopedics among others..
Lisa will be away from her home for days at a time and she will need loads of help.
Monetary donations are one way Brighton's Village can help Lisa and Zac!
