Sink or Swim...

He's diving in!

Patrick has been training for an upcoming open water swim.  A BIG event!  On October 8th he will swim 10 MILES in the "Swim the Suck" TN river gorge event.  (It should take about 4 hours!!)
Our good friend, David Clark, will be Patrick's "pilot," paddling beside him all the way in a kayak.  He will provide snacks, water and harassment/motivation!

Why?  Patrick loves a challenge.  But most of all to honor our upcoming adoption!  For those friends who have wanted to partner with us on this journey, you can sponsor Patrick for each mile he completes.  Donations will be applied to adoption agency expenses at Lifeline Children's Services.

The Goal?  To finish well, and to raise awareness of God's love for orphans.  He promised in His word: "I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you."  John 14:18

In view of God's love for us, we look forward to holding this new child... and becoming his/her forever family!

Adoption has been on our hearts since before we married.  God has led us to adopt a child with special needs from China for many reasons.  Growing up in China (for me) has a lot to do with it!  Raising and loving Abby has also caused us to see life with new eyes.
