Please continue to cover us in prayer. We really want Jesus to be at the center of everything that we do. We want to give him Glory for all of the victories. We are completely trusting Him for everything through this journey to bring Toby into his forever family. I will be adding some pictures in the near future as we put the pieces of the puzzle together. Please read the previous blog if you want to be a part of the big picture. Your support would be GREATLY appreciated ! You are loved!

BE A PART OF THE BIG PICTURE..........
As you know, being involved in an adoption is a very expensive rigorous process, but the end result is so worth the expense and stress. We want to include as many people in this adventure as possible. We are blessed to have a lot of wonderful family and friends that have come along side of us along our path of life. WE NEED YOUR HELP! The money that we are collecting is not for us, but to bring an orphan into a forever family. Many of you have told us that you are not able to adopt a child for very good reasons, but wish you could do something to impact the orphan problem that is in the world today. This is one way how you can be a part of our adoption and to bring this little Deaf boy from China into our home so that we can show him true love and share Jesus with him through sign language.
This fundraiser will be one of the biggest ones that we will do. We also plan to apply for as many grants as possible, but we know that with God and the support of people like you, the funding will come. He funds what He favors! We know that God favors adoption. He clearly talks about adoption and the orphan in His Word. (James 1:27) Our family is choosing to love "the least of these" and bring Toby in our home.
We have purchased a puzzle with Toby's picture on it. ( I can't show you the picture right now because the adoption agency said we can't put it online.) It is a 200 piece puzzle. If 200 people/groups will donate $50 or more to "purchase" one puzzle piece, we have the potential to raise $10,000 or more for the adoption. Here are ways to reach this goal:
- If you can donate $50 or more, I will put your name alone on the back of one of the puzzle pieces.
- A group of you can go in together to reach $50.
- If it is less than $50, it will still be appreciated! You just might have to share a puzzle piece with someone else. (:
When the puzzle is put together, we will see all of the names of the people that brought Toby home. You will be a part of the big picture!
I will also be sending everyone who contributes a simple Christmas ornament to remember how you helped an orphan celebrate his first Christmas with a real family in 2013. Our goal is to have him by then.. Lord willing. You can donate by going to the following website: www.adopttogether.org/thefailes or if you would rather send the money directly to us, our address is:
David and Mary Beth Faile
2125 Wedgewood Drive
Beavercreek, OH 45434
Most of all, would you commit to pray with us and for us? This is the biggest adventure that we have ever set out to do, but we know that it is the right thing. Please email me your home address so that I can send you the ornament. THANK YOU! WE LOVE YOU!
