A new brother!

It just dawned on me that I have announced this on facebook and never posted about it over here. We are going to be a family of 4! There is a little boy in Haiti who is waiting for a family and there is a family at our house who is waiting for another brother. We are a perfect match!
We have a long wait--probably a year or so--so I am not telling the boys yet. I cannot post his picture or information until his referral is official but once it is, I will be spilling my guts and posting his adorable picture everywhere!

In the meantime, I am trying hard to raise money. I will be doing several fundraisers. This adoption is an enormous leap of faith. I feel very strongly that God has orchestrated this entire process, so far, and will continue to do so. I also know that He will provide the money but I don't expect it to come pouring in without some serious work on my part. 

I have designed this Forever Family subway art. I will personalize it with the color, country, name and date of your choice. I will then email you a 16x20 jpg to print however you would like, as many times as you would like. It would be very cute framed in your child's room, printed on canvas, uploaded to your favorite photo site to be printed on notecards, mousepads, mugs, puzzles, etc. It would also be a wonderful present for grandparents. The cost is $15.00. You can email me with your order and details at ruthannefocht at gmail dot com or leave a comment here with your email address. I accept paypal or Chase transfers. You can also send a check and I will email you the jpg once the check has cleared.

I can't wait to give you all more details!

Until then, here is the subway art:

If you have a girl, and you don't like this color, tell me one that you do like. I don't have girls. We like brown, blue and black. ;)


  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!! I just hope I don't spill the beans and say anything to A or D when I see them at Gale's ;)
