Our Journey To Charlie & Levi...

After 17yrs of marriage and "8" amazing children, God has continued to keep the fire for adoption burning in our hearts. Crazy?... Maybe?!?! But....Doesn't God call all of us to do CRAZY things for him? Isn't that what it means to Live for Christ? To make a difference ONE orphan at a time. So after months of praying that this little guy would find a forever family, he FINALLY has!! OUR FAMILY!! Join us as we pray, cry, fill out mounds of paperwork & fundraise to bring our son home. We give God all the glory for choosing to adopt us & for giving us the opportunity to Choose Charlie...And because we could not get Zhora(Levi) off our minds and God obviously placed him in our hearts... We're bringing him home too!!

Moving Forward...

For those of you wondering if the situation with adoptions in Russia has affected our adoption of Charlie, it HAS NOT!!! However, it has affected many of the reece's rainbow families. Please PRAY for these families as the U.S. and Russia are in the middle of meetings regarding the matter. Yesterday's meeting went well & the next meeting will be on May 12th. The following was basically what was accomplished in the meetings..."Today we have created a working group to draft an intergovernmental agreement(treaty) between Russia and the U.S. - said Pavel Astakhov".... Please continue to pray that this will be expedited so that the families adopting can proceed with bringing home their sweet little ones.

On another note, we continue to fundraise for our fees to adopt Charlie. We are excited to be almost half way to our goal!! Yay! With only 6-8 wks left until our 1st trip to adopt our son we are praying diligently that God will continue to bless every bit of this journey & we have faith that God will get us to our goal! Thank you to every person that has been apart of this so far, we are so thankful for every one of you!

And...We officially have all of our documents ready to be notarized & apostilled!!! Yay!!

Check Back for our Next Fundraiser Event...
