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!!

One Step Closer...

It has been less than 3 months since we committed to adopt Charlie, and the time is drawing closer every day to that day when we will walk through the doors of an orphanage in eastern Europe and hug our little boy for the first time!! It is crazy how quickly we have gotten to this point! This week we are finishing up the last few documents for our dossier. Yay! We are getting so close to having the paperwork completed!!! We finally recieved our delivery confirmation that the USCIS had received our application, home study & fees. So in just a matter of weeks we should recieve that little piece of "GOLD" that gives us permission to bring Charlie home!!! Then we will make a quick trip(10hrs round-trip) to Austin to get everything apostilled by the State of Texas & send it the same day to Charlie's country!!! Wahoo!!! Then...We will WAIT! God has been so good, and things have gone so smooth, minus a few redos. lol Please continue to pray for the remainder of the paperwork to come to an end & most of all that God will provide the remainder of the money needed to bring our son home. We are praying and having faith that we will have every penny needed before we leave. FYI: We could be leaving in 8 to 12 weeks!!!!!! BRING IT GOD!!!!
