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!!

Rollercoaster RIDE.....Day 18

In FOUR hours we will be on our way to the airport to board a plane HOME. We spent time with the boys tonight and will not see them for 2 1/2 weeks:( But we will be Hugging our sweet children at HOME in less that 48 hours. Yay!!!! This was not part of our plan, but we are reminded once again that this is God's Plan!! So here's the latest...Our facilitator went to petition the judge for our court date and found out the judge is out on sick leave & will not return until Wed. Which meant that she would have to wait until Wed. to petition for our court date, & then we may or may not get a date the following week. So, as of now it looks like we will have court around Sept. 14th. That will give us 2 weeks home with our kids and then we will both have to return for court. At that point Sid will be able to come back home immediately after court & I will stay to finish up the boys passports, medicals, visa, etc...etc... And then

I will go before you and make the rough places smooth; I will shatter the doors of bronze, and cut through their iron bars. And I will give you the treasures of darkness, and hidden wealth of secret places, in order that you may know that it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name. ~Isaiah 45:2-3


  1. Wendy, As you my know, this is what happened to us too last year. Looking back, God's plan was best and coming home in the middle of the process to see the kids and regroup was really energizing. We knew that Bella would be well taken care of with her and Charlie's main caregiver. Hope you have a great trip back and a wonderful reunion with your kids!

  2. I admit, I got a bit nervous that something had gone wrong when I saw 'rollercoaster' at the title. I'm glad it's a detour...not a roadblock. Sid certainly will be familiar with the inside of an aiplane after traveling to the Ukraine for court..then getting back on a flight home. I'm glad you are on your way home to see your kids, and like Paula said, you can regroup and re-energize yourself for the next leg of the journey. Lots of love from my family to yours!!

  3. Safe travels! glad you will be seeing your kids at home very soon.
