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!!

So yesterday we get a document in the mail that was just plain, nothing fancy with the blanks filled in with our names. I read it twice & then Sid read it & we were like cool, "It looks like we got approval to adopt, & now we just have to WAIT for that I-171H" Well, we were WRONG!! It was our I-170H!!!!! Which states, "It has been determined that you are able to furnish proper care to an orphan." YAY! Only 12 days after our federal fingerprints we have our Golden document from the USCIS (my new favorite people) :) So tomorrow I finish up all the last few things, get a few more documents notarized AGAIN, and then Wednesday I will be off to Austin to get everything apostilled and then fed-ex it ALL to Charlie's country. I totally can not believe it! We could be holding our little man in a matter of weeks!! Wahoo! SO, next on the agenda we still have $12,000 to raise!! Please pray that the last of the needed money will come...We are on a mission...
Coming To Get You Soon Charlie!!!!
