.the chase family.

Now that Hannah James is opened we are starting the partnership program.  Each month a new family will be partnering with us to raise funds for adoption!  The families will get 50% of the profits from Hannah James bringing them closer to getting their little ones.  The Chase Family is the first family we are partnering with and I could not be more excited to help them out!  Please take some time to get to know them, they are a really sweet family.
"We are so blessed to be able to be on this adoption journey.  Though it is difficult much of the time, we know that this is the way God intended to build our family.  We're so thankful for all He is teaching us, for the opportunity to grow in Him, and for all the amazing people we have met along the way.  We are forever changed because God saw it fit to draw us near to Him and lead us to this path."  Jennifer Chase

When did your family start the adoption process? We placed our name on a waiting list to adopt from Taiwan on February 2nd, 2010.  After waiting with no movement, we felt called change our adoption journey to Ethiopia and applied with our agency on July 31st, 2010.

Why do you blog? I use my blog as a journal for what is going on in our lives, whether it is adoption-related, family-related, or craft-related, it's just fun to have it all in one place where those interested in us can easily check in.

*Carl Junction is right outside of Joplin, Missouri.  They are still in clean up mode there and could use our extra prayers and support.  Please visit their blog and leave some love. Thanks!

And help them get closer to bringing their little one home by shopping at Hannah James!
