My Heart's in Haiti

Our really good friends, Elizabeth and Peyton are adopting a handsome 4 year old boy from Haiti. Their story is quite remarkable and is all at the hands of God. Back in February they both went on a mission trip with our church to Haiti. There they meet a little boy at the time name Junior and both feel in love with him and knew at that moment he was going to be their son. They came home the next week and started the adoption process. Peyton and Elizabeth are very successful and happily married for 6 years with no children of their own. They love kids and have lots of nieces and nephews, but having kids of their own was something not in their plan, but God had other plans for them. So when they came home and told us about Junior we were shocked, but could not be more proud and happy for them. So we have started helping them with the adoption process and bring him home. Last weekend they were able to rent a booth at the Southern Women's Show to help raise money to bring Mathieu (they changed his name) home by selling t-shirts, bracelet's and taking donations. I was truly honored to volunteer with them and tell people their story.

This is Mathieu. Isn't he a cutie?

I am so EXCITED about this sweet couple bring Mathieu home. They have a website where you are able to check in on their adoption process and order these super cute shirts. One hundred percent of all the proceeds go to their adoption.

My heart's in Haiti is yours?

And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.” Matthew 18:5 (NIV)
