"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

God Provides

We want to share the outcome of our auction with you!  God is good.  God is faithful.  God provides. 

We are once again so humbled by the generosity of people and by the abundant blessings of God.  We had a lovely turn out for our dinner and there were many items to bid on.  Bidding concluded on Saturday at 4pm and resumed at the dinner event for final bids.  It was neat that some of the items did go to the online bidders. 

Thank you to all those who donated their services, items, and time.  Many people couldn't come or it wasn't in their budget to bid on an item, but they made something or gave something to be bid on.  That helped so much! 

Many of you were behind the scenes hanging lights, unloading tables, making dessert, cooking noodles, stirring sauce, or praying for us near and far. 

It was a fun night with great fellowship and good food!  But it wouldn't have been possible without the help of so many.  Thank you.

The Lord blessed our efforts to raise $5000 toward our adoption costs!!!  We have $8000 due at the time of referral, so this is a HUGE help!!!

Thank you for your continued prayers and support.  It means so much to us.

It's time!!  Our auction is beginning on Sunday, October 8 at 12:00PM Arizona time.  The auction will be open for bidding all week and will end at 7:30PM on October 13.  To view the items and place your bid, go to:


The website is easy to use.  It does have you sign up if you want to bid and you have to enter your name and address.  You don't enter any payment information unless you win the item. We will be adding new items all week as we continue to have items donated.

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has put in your time to make this auction possible.  Many people donated your time making handmade items, many gave items from your shop, some donated services or items that were new and unused.
We were blown away by the generosity of businesses and know that it is only by the hand of God this has all come together and we are so thankful for His blessing on this so far. 

We will still have the live auction and dinner on Saturday, October 13.  If you missed the previous post, here is the info:

Wear Your Support!

Would you like to show your love and support???  Just wear a shirt!  I would LOVE to make one of these shirts for you!  I am not selling these to raise funds, just to raise support and give people a way to show their love for our little one in Ethiopia. 

Thank you to my beautiful models, Andrea and Adele:)

There are two ways to have your shirt made.  I can purchase the shirt for you (Target has a great v-neck ladies shirt for $10 in several colors) and then I will make it and only charge you for the cost of the shirt and shipping if I need to ship it to you.  OR, if you live close and want to just give me the shirt, I'll take it home, sew it up and return it for no cost!

Target also has a nice men's shirt for $10 as well and I made Brent one.

There are two styles:  the reverse applique, which is shown above or a zig zag stitch on the outside, which is shown below  (I know it's hard to tell in the photos.  In my opinion, the zig zag stitch is more for kids!)

Please contact me if you're interested.  And even if you come across this blog and I have no idea who you are, I'd love to make you one, too!  Just leave a comment below or email at abfrazey@gmail.com

October Update!

Well, October has arrived!  I didn't update our number in September because we have been at a little bit of a stand-still on the waiting list.  We are currently in the process of updating our homestudy because we had to add our newest family member to it!  Brent also got a new job, so that of course had to be added in as well.  But I didn't want to leave you hanging for the month of October, too!  We spoke with the agency and they said that if we were to have our homestudy paper work completed right now and were able to receive a referral, we'd be.....drum roll please.....#5!!  Wow, right?!  We can't believe we are in single digits!  So excited to see what God has planned for us in the next few months and how our family of four will be growing.  We continue to trust Him with our plans and know that His timing is perfect.  To God be the glory!

We'd ask that you please pray for:
-God to be glorified through our adoption
-Our child in Ethiopia, who very well may have been born
-Our homestudy update to go through with no complications
-Our dinner fundraiser to come together smoothly in the next 2 weeks
-God to bless the silent auction and dinner fundraiser and our efforts toward it

Have you checked out the items for our auction yet?  We still have many that we haven't collected to take photos of, but here is a preview of some of the items.  God has blessed this so much and we are overwhelmed at the generosity of others.  Now we pray that we will have people to bid on these great items!!
