"Man plans his steps... and God laughs!" We have BIG news!We are Scott and Rebecca Ellis and we have 4 daughters - 3 biological and our newest and...
India has more than 30 million orphans. That's a staggering number, SO staggering that our minds want to glaze right over it. But we met these precious kids- read to them, fed them, held them- and you can't "unsee" that. So if somehow God sees us fit to bring another into our family, who are we to argue! We've often told our girls to do hard things, and do them afraid- so now here we are, trying to practice what we preach.
At this point, we have been approved to adopt again by both the U.S. and Indian governments and have been officially matched with our beautiful 5th daughter! We have been so blessed by friends and family who have written letters on our behalf, babysat kids while we collected, notarized, and post marked ALL THE DOCUMENTS KNOWN TO MAN, and of course encouraged and held us up in prayer. Obviously, 2 adoptions done consecutively could be a financial burden- but we saw God provide in amazing ways the first time and are confident in His provision once again. If you feel led to support this adventure, donating through this site is a great tax- deductible way to join with us. Of course, whether you can or cannot, we covet your prayers and words of encouragement and are so thankful for any and all that have sown into us in any way!
