Psalm 68:5-6

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

I am Stepanie Nance. My family adopted two little boys with Down Syndrome from Ukraine in 2010. I hope to educate and to inspire you. I hope to make you laugh and to make you cry.

Come along for the ride. It's a wild one!

First things first...I drew a winner of the iPod yesterday and posted it on Facebook, but neglected to announce it here. Silly me.

Clare Oven was chosen randomly. Thank you to everyone who made the fundraiser for Tori a great success. Let us continue to pray for her family as they race to get their paperwork submitted before the Christmas season shut-down that happens in November.

Secondly I wanted to share what our church family has done for us. Today they threw us a baby shower for Zhen and Theo! OK, the boys are not babies, but you get the idea. Showered is what we were! Showered with kind, encouraging words, lovely and thoughtful gifts, and fantastic food and conversation.

Even the other children got a little something special!

My wish for you other adopting families is that your church family would take you under it's wing in the same way. Not all families are as fortunate as we are to have that kind of love and support. We are humbled and grateful.

I shared a little about my friend Jill over at Ralphcrew. Please go HERE and take a look at my amazing friend who provided us with some music today. You won't be sorry!!
