I made my first trip to Haiti in 1998. Fell in love with my first orphan in 2000. Started a non-profit to help Haiti in 2003 and started taking teams down on short-term mission trips soon after. I fell in love with Wanna and Fritzon (and a lot of others in the same orphanage) in March of 2010 and had to wait over 2 years to start the adoption process due to the laws of Haiti and a process that is always changing. Our documents were finally submitted and accepted in the fall of 2012 and are currently moving through the court system. We are quickly (hopefully) approaching the end of our adoption. This is my blog to talk about all things related to our adoption and any thing else I think is relevant to it. Enjoy!

Phoneraiser for adoption. If you have any old cell phones or printer ink cartridges we are collecting to help raise money for the adoption costs. There's a company that will pay for them...some are only worth a couple dollars but others are worth a little more. Every little bit helps. If you work at a business and can put up a collection box that would be awesome too.

I'm getting a great response to the Phoneraiser for our adoption. Just found out in addition to old cell phones and ink cartridges I can all turn in old: Laptops & Netbooks, MP3 Players, Digital Cameras, Digital Video Cameras, GPS Devices, Radar Detectors, Kindle & Sony Book Readers. If you have these laying around (outdated, broken, unused....) or want to put up a box at your work, let me know. They aren't worth a whole lot individually but together it will add up and every little bit helps. If you don't live close by but want to help I can send you a label to ship in directly to the company for us. Thanks so much!
