- My name is Tracy and I am married to an amazing man, his name is Thomas! We are a busy family that is always on the go between church, school, work and sports.... we are not a sitting around kind of family. We have 4 amazing children and are working on bringing home Elias to make 5. My hubby is Deaf and I am a sign language interpreter,we are very involved in the Deaf community and are excited to be adding another Deaf member to our family. Our kids, Aaron-19, Luke-11, Tommy-10 and Paige-5 are anxious for their new brother to be home. This is our second adoption and we are learning more everyday to lean on God, this journey is already strengthening our faith! We are working on learning how to turn everything over to God and know that He has a perfect plan and all will happen in His time! Good things come to those who wait.

AHHHHH I am applying for grants like a crazy woman and digging into fundraising ideas. Anyone that has any great ideas they would love to share would be greatly appreciated. We are hoping to get some grants but fundraising would be great too! The applications for the grants are LONG and taking way more time then I had expected but it will be worth it if we qualify for one or more! We are praying that God will help us find a way and that the funds needed to bring our son home will be here when they are needed. So far God has been amazing and we have truly been blessed and met every need. We are coming up on some big needs though and any prayers for funds would be a blessing! Praying to bring our handsome son home sometime in the very beginning of 2011. I am hoping for the very beginning of January but of course this is not up to us and the longer we wait for LOA the longer the wait until we can go. We are on day 38 of our LOA wait and with this being Friday there goes my dream of having an LOA in the 20 or 30 day range, so now I am praying for the 40 day range! After LOA we have about 9-12 weeks before we travel so as you can see the faster LOA comes the faster it is to bring our Luke home!
