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 Apparently in the state of Texas, you generally recieve your I-171H about 30 days after you get your federal fingerprints done. So because this is the last document that we need to send our dossier to Charlie's country, we WAIT...That means we should have it in our hands before June 4th. Then I will be off to Austin to get it appostilled and fed-ex everything to our facilitator. So, for now we just WAIT...I'm guessing that this is that part that gets hard. Knowing that everything is done & that Charlie is just waiting for his Mommy & Daddy to come get him. Hopefully the time will fly by & we will have a court date before we know it!!! Please continue to pray for every peice of paperwork to be perfect, for nothing to have to be redone, and for Charlie to be safe & healthy until we can hold him in our arms.
