Shout Out: Meet the Goodier Family!
Meet the Goodier Family! I normally save "shout out" posts for Mondays, but the Goodier has a super cool Kindle Fire giveaway that ends this Sunday night!
"Hi, we are James and Rachel Goodier and we are adopting a toddler boy or girl from Honduras. You can catch up on our story at http://www.swederican.com/
We have two biological children, a five year old girl, Ella, and an almost three year old boy, Andrew. We were in the midst of trying to decide if we should have a third child when God really laid on both of our hearts the idea of adoption. We saw the great need and knew we wanted to respond. During the course of several months both James and I prayed about and felt led to pursue adoption.
We immediately fell in love with the country of Honduras, a beautiful land plagued by poverty and crime. We submitted our Dossier in the fall of 2011 and received our first waitlist number in the spring of 2012. We are currently number 38 on the waitlist and our praying for a referral in the near future.
Our adoption will cost approximately $40,000 and we currently have $10,000 left to raise. We desire to have all our funds in place so that when we get the referral call we are ready to go!
Our church community has been very supportive and are throwing a family Carnival to raise fund. Part of the carnival is a silent auction and a raffle.
