A Little Bit Closer Today Good Wishes

"We feel so much of life is not accomplished overnight, but in small, sometimes very small steps each day, and through that little bit we can accomplish our dreams and goals. We know we will reach our adoption goal through a lot of; "little bits" We love the idea of a hundred good wishes to make one BIG one."

Our Story

We are a family of 5. We've been married almost 6 years and have three wonderful children. Tommy is 4, Noah is 3, and our littlest Audrey is 18 months. We know both the joys and struggles adoption carries, as we adopted our middle son Noah from Russia. We love the picture adoption represents, God making us (his adopted children) co-heirs with Christ. We feel God is calling us to bring another child - a child who has no mommy or daddy - into our home to have a family. Adoption carries a bit of a bill, and we are using this opportunity to raise money to bring the newest member of our family home, as well as show them they are loved by many!!!

A Good Wish from

Scott & Patti Olthoff

"Dearest God, who reigns above,
show these little ones your love.
Hear the prayers they'll someday say,
and take their tiny hands each day
to guide their steps
through all that's new
And help them grow up
strong in you.

We promise to uphold your family in prayer as you travel to China to embrace,love and bond with the children that God has chosen to be in your family. We pray for safety, patience and endurance during your journey in China and your trip back to your home. Much love to the entire Kolanowski family as you become a family of 7!

The Olthoff's"
