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!!

Grown in Mommy & Daddy's HEART!!!

When we initially committed to make Charlie part of our family, we also asked to commit to another sweet little boy. We soon found out that another wonderful family had choosen to be his forever family. We were so incredibly happy for that little guy, but super heartbroken that he would not be coming home with Charlie. So after receiving our Homestudy(which approved us to adopt 2 children), and our approval from USCIS (which approved us to adopt 2), we have continued to pray about whether or not God was leading us to bring 2 boys home! So finally, confirmation!!! Yay!!!! I love it when God drops it right in your lap!!! So through tears of joy I type these words knowing that another sweet heart will never step one foot in an institution and that he will have his very own "Forever Family" These two little ones will have more LOVE, HUGS & KISSES than they know what to do with. They have truly grown in their Mommy & Daddy's hearts!!!! Welcome to your FAMILY Charlie & Zhora(Levi)!!! In a matter of weeks we will be holding BOTH of you in our arms.....

  4. That is SO great!! I was looking for Zhora today on RR to see if he had a family. I never found him. But now I know he has a family too! I am SO happy for your family, Charlie and Zhora. Too bad Charlie and Joseph couldn't stay together (I'm just guessing he was the other little guy) but at least he DOES have a family coming for him real soon as well.

    Congrats!!!

  11. This has been an answer to prayer! I have long prayed for Zhora to be Charlie's brother & am praising God today that He had planned it all along. I did not know that you had inquired about him before, & went ahead getting approval for 2 children.... I was so excited when I read your post & could hardly believe my eyes. Many, many, many blessings on your entire family!! Gina
