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!!

Life's Good...Day 3

Today we met the Bollinger's for lunch at a little cafe. The food was good, the waitress spoke english, the bathroom was nice & most of all the fellowship with fellow Texan's was such a blessing! Please pray for this sweet couple and their son as they travel to visit their children for the 1st time & that they would not grow weary as they have already been here 25 days. After a couple of hours we got a call that our driver was on his way to take us to pick up our referral so that we can see the boys on monday. So off we went to the SDA again. We signed our names a couple places and left with the entire dossier and a single piece of paper that says we CAN SEE CHARLIE!!!! Our facilitator has explained that since the boys are at the same orphanage we should be able to see them both even though only Charlie's name is on the referral. Please be praying that that is the case, cause my heart will be sad if I can only see Levi from a distance:(

We left the SDA on foot & walked & walked again. We saw many of the cathedrals & ate at an Irish Pub(Ha! I wish this were Ireland). So far the food has been yummy everywhere we have been. We had no problems on the Metro. Woohoo!! And we only had one "What happens in EE stays in EE" with the Wojcik's:) Ha!!! LOL......
