Where The Lord Guides, He Provides!

Lifesong For Orphans/Both Hands Foundation sent us our accounting of donations to date this afternoon! We are completely BLOWN AWAY by the generosity of those who are donating toward our adoption. We are in AWE! The goal is finally within reach! Money is no longer a barrier to bringing our children home! A year ago, we knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that God was calling us to adopt...Then in January, we were certain He wanted us to adopt two children, not just one. Although this doubled the financial burden, we knew that if this was truly God's will, then He would provide the funds because it was not something that we would be able to finance in our own power. To God be the glory! He is moving in the hearts of His people. It is amazing to see people coming forward in obedience and giving of their hard-earned finances to bring two orphans home to their forever family...a father, a mother, and two siblings. Knowing that people are so graciously investing into the lives of A and S and entrusting us to be their parents gives us a renewed desire and energy to be the BEST parents that we can be...both now and when A and S come home. We are eternally grateful to the amazing people who are giving! Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow!

Carroll Both Hands Project

Our Both Hands Project was a HUGE success! All of the planned work was completed and is beautiful! Our widow Mrs. Collins was blessed, her 21-year Army veteran husband was honored, the volunteers had a blast serving others, and the two children we are adopting from lnd!a are being brought closer to home due to the sponsorship of this project! It's not too late to donate. 100% of the funds donated goes to the adoption! To donate, click on the Both Hands donate button on the side of this page, or visit We pray that God will continue to be at the center of this project and that He will receive all the glory.
