Drum Roll Please................

"OK guys are you ready for our wonderful news?"

We are jumping for joy at the Shrum house and praising the Lord!!!! Can you hear us?



"We took a leap of faith" to adopt our 2 Guatemalan Princessa's and had a lot of left over debt.

I am happy to share our news with you all that we received a wonderful tax check back today enough to finish paying off our adoption credit card!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After many months of trying
to do everything possible to raise money to pay off this credit card we are ecstatic to get rid of this debt and it feels wonderful!!! But that is not all.... We have enough to pay another credit card off and catch up on all bills too. Thank You Jesus!!!



I hope this was not a let down to those of you who thought we were adopting again! I finally feel free from this burden that was weighing down on our shoulders! The Lord said he would provide and that he would take care of us and HE did! It may have not be our timing or when we thought it to be but it was in His!!!

As for adoption the Lord called me and Karlton to adopt and if it is in his will for us to adopt again one day our hearts are open! I don't think that door will ever close........

Thank You all for your love, prayers, and support with helping us pay off our adoption credit card!!! We could have never done it with out everyone's help!!!!! Now, I can take off our fundraising thermometer!

Romans 8:28 " And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
