we've been accepted


on friday afternoon, adam and i received an email from one world adoption services informing us that we have officially been accepted into the congo program!!! we are overwhelmed with excitement and thankfulness. we will begin our home study in the coming days, which is the first step in bringing our sweet child home. i'll be sharing more in the coming weeks on why we have chosen to adopt, why the democratic republic of congo, and where we are in the process.
but today i am sharing the first way that YOU can be a part of bringing a sweet orphan to his/her forever family!
my very talented friend ashley miller (ashmill) has offered her services to help fund our adoption.
AshMill Photography will be offering mini-photo sessions in Bowling Green, Kentucky on Saturday, April 16 (and Sunday, the 17 if needed) and in Evansville, Indiana on Saturday April 30. Each session will last 20-30 minutes and will be a combination of posed and candid portraits. For $50 clients will get to choose 10 images (high-res, custom edited digital files, with full rights for printing) with the option to purchase additional images. Groups (individuals, couples, families, etc.) of any sizes welcome. $30 from each session will go directly to our adoption fundraising.
you can check out some of her photography here.
send an email to thejochims@gmail.com or message me on facebook to set up your mini-shoot. we'll send details about where to meet and answer any other questions you may have as well.
and don't forget to help spread the word and invite your friends!!!!!
