2011 was an intense year for Jim & Emily - they continued in their adoption journey, lost their first referral, were put back on the waiting list, mourned and celebrated Emily's mother going to be with the Lord, and rejoiced at the referral of their incredible son, Moses.
Give1Save1, a website that assists with fundraising for families adopting from Africa, has shared Jim & Emily's story. You can read Emily's words and watch a great video about the Hapners and the story God is unfolding for them here. Jim & Emily should hear about their court date any day, which means they will make the first of two trips to Ethiopia. As you might imagine, last minute overseas airline tickets are quite pricey, so this fundraising will help alleviate the last large portion of their adoption costs.
