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!!

Today's Visit....Day 10

Today we woke up to cooler weather & rain!!! We have gone from high 90's to 60's. For all of you adoptive families that just went home, sorry you didnt' get to enjoy the COOL!! LOL This morning's visit went great. We had a good time with both the boys. Every day we find new things about them that we didn't know...

Things we have learned about Charlie:

  • He does not like to be taken back to his groupa at the end of our visit
  • If you tell him to put his tongue in he WILL
  • He loves to play Pat-A-Cake, Wheels on the Bus & The Lord's Army
  • He is NOT interested in coloring, but likes to look at books & will try to repeat us
  • He can now say AGAIN PLEASE (In his little husky voice)
  • He does not like Levi to get too close to him

Things we have learned about Levi:

  • He LOVE, LOVE, LOVE'S to ride the tricycle(especially down steep hills. Ha!)
  • He loves to lay his head on your shoulder
  • He Loves to play with books & will color in a coloring book
  • He likes to lead the way, but always wants to make sure you are close behind
  • He has flat feet and the cutest little duck walk

On the swing AGAIN....

Not sure what got into Charlie, but he initiated this Bear Hug:)


Ticklish BIG time

That cute little walk

I'm bored with the Slide...

Clapping for himself...Yay!!!!

God Continue's To Stand Beside Us as we WAIT for our court date....This is the hardest WAITING part of our whole journey so far. Please continue to pray that we will hear soon:)


  1. Those sure are some cute boys!!! So you haven't gotten a court date yet?? How much notice do they give you??

  2. Wendy, what beautiful pictures! Will be praying for a quick"er" court date! Oh, how can I empathize with you....waiting for our court date was agony!
