It is almost time to say good-bye to 2015 and welcome in 2016!
This year brought us some huge unexpected changes. We left December 2014 with the thought of adoption in the back of our minds as always. January of this year brought us to the point of “it’s time to start looking at our options”. The plan was to find an agency, start paperwork, and spend this past year saving for our “future” adoption! Wow how things change!
January 28, 2015 is the day I first saw a picture of “Kasmira”. And she grabbed my heart and never let go! March 23 we officially committed to our Ruthie.
Now we are 9 days away from boarding a plane for the adventure of a lifetime to meet our daughter and bring her home as a Ballard, a loved and cherished daughter and sister!
God has moved mountains to make this possible. He has provided ways for us to earn extra money this year, He has used family, friends, and strangers to raise the funds needed for Ruthie’s adoption. It has truly been a humbling experience. We CAN NOT thank everyone enough for walking this journey with us.
There is still one week left of 2015 and many people are looking for places to for final year end tax deductions. I would love to help you find a worthy place that will make a lifelong difference for a child and their forever family!
Our FSP is still open as we are close to being fully funded but not quite there yet. Ballard Family FSP
I have the privilege of being a Reece’s Rainbow Family Warrior for my friend Tina. They are short on funds to bring their son home and are working SO hard! They hope to be traveling in February. Please consider making a donation to Scheid Family FSP
Thank you for doing 2015 with us! 2016 is going to be AMAZING!!
