I’m adopting again

I’m adopting again

It has been so long since I posted on this blog…..Life has been happening….and I actually plan on starting another blog soon and I will eventually transfer all these posts over to that blog. But for now if anyone still reads this blog. I am adopting again….FROM HAITI!!!!!


Would you partner with me to help bring my daughter home?

Dear Friends and Family,

In 2004, I stepped off a plane into the beautiful country of Haiti and my life has never been the same. I was blessed with the experience of spending time with kids in the orphanages and other children who lived in extreme poverty in Haiti. My heart is forever broken for the orphans of Haiti, yearning for a family of their own. I knew one day I would return to bring one of these precious little ones home.

I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you…John 14:18

Well I am pleased to announce 11 years later, I have the honor of becoming a parent to a Haitian orphan. Today, I would like to include you on my Haitian adoption journey!

I am in the initial stages of our adoption journey. At this time, my application has been accepted to adopt from Haiti by Chinese Children Adoption International (CCAI) and I am saving money to begin my adoption home study process. Unfortunately, the process of adoption requires that we step out on faith and be stretched in ways that are out of my comfort zone. I am so thankful that I have the means to provide for a child’s daily needs, but the reality is there is a substantial amount of money (close to $32,000) needed to bring this child home.

Would you be willing to enter into this journey with us? Whether you feel led to help me financially or through your prayers and encouragement, it all means the world to me!

There are a couple of ways that you could financially support me:

1.   You can make an online donation to my Adoption Fundraising website here: http://youcaring.com/albertiefamily.   If you would rather send a check by mail, that would be fine as well.  Either way, your donation and your prayers will be used for the sole purpose of bringing my daughter and my sons’ sister home!

2.   Or you can make a purchase from my online business, Brown Sugar Belle here: www.brownsugarbelle.com. I sell beautiful custom dolls, costumes and dress up items for boys and girls, kid’s jewelry and bedding!

This letter has been one of much prayer and thought. I have struggled with the thought of asking anyone to support me. But, we also know that God uses his people for his purposes. We would be honored to know that you helped me bring my child home and knowing that this one child will have the opportunity of growing up in a home, instead of an orphanage. Thank you so much for your prayers and your support. No words could ever express our gratitude for your love for our family.

Thanks in advance!

Love always, Farrah

The Day I Finally Grew Up…

The Day I Finally Grew Up…

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man (adult), I put away childish things. 1 Corinthians 13:11 This past week I faced a familiar sorrow when a series of mistakes I committed, cost me yet another closeContinue Reading
