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!!

God's Heart

"These are the children that the Lord saw fit to bless me with" Gen 33:5

"The Girls"

"The Boys"



Charlie & Levi are two sweet little ones that will soon join our family....Not because we thought it sounded cool, not because we thought it might be fun, BUT because God commands us to take care of the orphans and widows and We know it's part of his plan for US. God Never said being a Christ follower would be EASY. There is no Easy Button in this Precious Life that Christ has given me. My God does NOT want me to avoid things because they are hard or because people might think I am crazy or weird. He does not want me to avoid where He is leading my family. And...I do NOT EVER want to miss out on what Jesus is really about! I want my life to be a life that glorifies Him! Going against what's normal or typical or ordinary is sometimes HARD, but SO incredibly worth it! Yes... Adoption is Hard, Adoption is Amazing, And Adoption IS the Gospel of Christ. And for us there is no alternative because Adoption Is God's Heart.
