Am I the only one disturbed by this?

If you want to apply for an adoption loan you must have a completed home study (which costs upwards of $8,000, mind you), letters of reference, approval from your adoption agency, AND the interest rate is  over 9% (for 84 months).

Yet should you choose to finance a car you can get an unbelievable interest rate for 0%. Need a mortgage, only 3.4%.  A new boat, a meager 4.9% rate of interest. What about an RV?  Just 4.9% for up to 143 months (!!) 

Am I the only one disturbed by this? Worldly possessions are cheaper to finance than giving an orphan a home? Seriously? 


In my state of annoyance today I had a friend tell me this, Stand up and say, "The same God that put this desire in my heart will provide every dollar for us to bring my baby girl home" (thank you Cindy!) So, I said, I printed out, and I believe it. 

And with that, we begin fundraising. I've rolled this out earlier this week and received a great response so far :) Please help us spread the word! We still have a slew of other ideas so hopefully you all won't be sick of me over the next few months...

Happy {Day After} Father's Day

... to all the awesome dads out there... especially my sweet husband, whose Godly example of love, patience, kindness, forgiveness, and total obedience to God is so very inspiring. How lucky are we?

Can't wait to plop another kiddo in for a quick Iphone shot, pop on my fisheye adaptor, and torture them all with endless pictures.... after all, that's what I do best!
