Just Love Coffee

We are very excited to be teaming up with Just Love Coffee to help our fund-raising efforts for adoption. The coffee is delicious, and with every bag that is sold, we receive $5. I can't explain to you how excited we are. Not only will this help us, but it's pretty stinking cool at the same time. You can go to our website to view and purchase several blends of coffee. So, all my caffeine addicted friends: you can help your cause by helping ours!!!

Interviews, Interviews, Interviews

We are currently heading into our third week of interviews. Last week, we had our second interview in our home which concluded with our home inspection. And, despite what my lovely wife might say, I am not that disgusting to live with. Ha. We passed our home inspection with flying colors. We had heard that most people get overly stressed out about these things, and we were no exception. Melody's mother came the Saturday prior to the meeting and helped scrub, and I mean SCRUB our house down. Needless to say, the place was awesome, and I felt blessed to have a home that nice. However, the stories were true. We completely stressed for nothing. It was simple, almost routine. In fact, our counselor spent most of the time trying to get Melody to come decorate her home and raving about Mel's "unique design ability."

So, now we are on to the next step: the individual meeting. I am going today for my one-on-one interview, and Melody's is tomorrow. So, as usual, please be praying for wisdom and guidance through this entire process. It is turning into a very pleasant and rewarding process, because we know it is exactly where God wants us. He has blessed us so much already, and we are enjoying the adventure so much, we forget we are actually working "toward" the reward: a beautiful baby. Our child isn't here yet, but we still have the "joy of God sustaining us" until that day. May God bless each of you. We thank you for your continued prayers and support.

God Bless,

It's been a long time.....

Wow... the times they are a-changing. We thought it pertinent to update our blog, now. It's FINALLY time to do so, because we actually have something to share. First, we'd like to start by expressing our sincere thanks to all of those who have supported our child through prayer, guidance and through financial means. To all of those who are sportin' the Craving Grayson shirts, we thank you. For those of you who aren't and would like to.... they will be available soon. 

God has been so good to us. Throughout the month of December, we attended classes with Agape. We love their heart for ministry and their vision and passion for the Kingdom. After a lot of prayer, we are really excited about choosing them as our agency. After finishing our orientation, we have begun our home study. (Kind-a weird being finger printed, ha) We have been working on the house, getting it ready to be scrutinized by our social worker, and by the way, please pray for her. Since I don't have her permission, I can't give her name, but she loves Jesus and her passion is pairing needy children with Christian couples. So, please please please pray for her. Not just because of our adoption, but because of all the cases she works with, she needs our prayer. We have a meeting Thursday morning with her, and things are looking up. 

We are constantly reminded of how good God is. In the past month, through the devastation of Haiti, we have seen God use this terrible event to bring home a child to very good friends of ours. Even through the darkest times, we have a hope and a light, and He is always faithful. We are so excited about the near future, and thank you so much for your prayers and support. 

God Bless,

It has been a while since either of us blogged. We have been in the decision making process for the last few months and felt that we really didn't have any new news. But now it is official. I can not tell you how excited I am that we have started the adoption process. We finished the initial application and turned in the forms to Bethany Christian Services yesterday. Now we get the joy of filling out even more paper work, more paper work, and oh yes did I mention more paper work.
We appreciate all your prayers during this process.

Love you all,
Logan and Melody

Well, it's taken me a few days, but I wanted to get on here and say something about this past Sunday evening at the Night of Worship at 24. We never expected God to do so much for us that night. Through donations and the sale of Mel's stuff we raised almost $700 for our adoption. That's incredible. We want to thank all of you who have supported us with offerings and continued prayer. Sunday night was the first time for me that I realized that this adoption could actually occur.

Also, through the can drive for the concert, 24 was able to re-stock the food pantry to help families in need around the community. I love my church family, and I'm anxious to see what God has in store for all of us.

God Bless,

I have never been good at expressing my feelings. I think that is why I haven't written anything on our Craving Grayson blog until now. How am I supposed to explain all the feelings and emotions I have about such a personal thing in my life? This past year has been filled with ups and downs: trying to get pregnant, finding out we are unable to have children, and deciding to adopt. Now we are faced with all the decisions: What agency? How are we going to get the money? Baby or toddler? What ethnicity? Special needs child or not? How do we apply for grants? Who do we ask for references? and so on and so on. Our friends and families have been so supportive so far and I know they will continue to be there for us through this whole process. I especially want to thank my mother for her encouragement, guidance, and words of wisdom. She is the perfect example of a Godly mother showing Christ through her actions of service to her family. I pray that I will be able to be this same example to my children some day.

You know...there hasn't ever been anything in my life that was extremely trying. Things just sort of fell into place. I never worried over where I would go to college, or what I would get my degree in. I never worried about who I would marry, I just knew it and God put it all into motion. I still can't tell you why or how we are in the house we are in, the city or even the church we are in now. I've always trusted God to guide me, and until now its all been easy.

Now, for the first time things are getting hairy. I'm learning to trust God again in a new way. I'm learning to lean on His understanding, and how to wait on His timing. I always knew what was around the corner my whole life, nothing was a big surprise. But now... the unexpected will become our greatest gift when all this is over, and I'm liking the unexpected. I can't wait.

God Bless,


p.s. Making Malorie... Thank you for you support, prayers and love.
