Here are a couple of pictures of Dusseldorf, Germany. The plan is to move there by the end of March- as long as all our funds have come in.
We just went for a visit to check out the city and see if our family could live there. It's a great city and our children will do GREAT. It's very safe and very international.
We met people who work with YouthCompass and they are all so great. We met some of the kids we'll be working with and even got to check out the international school where most of the kids go. It was very exciting and the house they have for us is perfect.
So now that we are back, we have to dive into fundraising. We need to raise about $2300 a month and the board in Dusseldorf raises the rest of the needed amount. We've been meeting with people to see if they'd like to be part of our team. SO, right now we could use all your prayers as we try to make our goal by March!!
They want us there by March so Nick can participate in project compassion. It's a service project the kids go on every year. They are going to Albania to build medical clinics in a small village. It'd be a perfect time for Nick to start building relationships with the students.
Pray for us as we are fundraising! We are also looking for opportunities to talk with groups of people-small groups or friends of yours we may not know.

Here are the kiddos on Halloween. Josiah had quite a day being Buzz Lightyear! Sophia didn't care much-but I wouldn't either if I couldn't have any candy!
Sophia's 12 month Stats:
16.6 lbs 27 3/4 in. She's 1%
Our doctor went ahead and did a urine sample to check her thyroid-I haven't heard anything yet (no news is good news right?). He said there is really no concern because she's so proportionate. She's just a petite little girl. He said to feed her well and we'll check her in two months.
