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!!

**UPDATE...Day 15**


We had our 2nd SDA appt. for Levi and everything went well:) We are picking up our referral for him in a couple of hours. So tomorrow morning we will go through the same steps we did with Charlie minus the meeting with the orphanage director because he already went through Levi's file with us. Once everything is complete our facilitator will be able to submit us for COURT! We should have our court date & time late thursday or friday. Yay! Please join us in praying & believing that our date will be soon so that we can move forward with the adoption & also so we can return home to hug and kiss on our children during the 12 day waiting period. God is good & we are thankful:)


  1. Can't wait for you to get that court date!! I hope you hear something tomorrow :)
    Let us know if you are up for a visitor after we have court. Chris is ready to hang w/Sid. (I of course will be here still).

  2. Praying for that date. But also shedding tears for you, Sid and the boys. I just know that in a few months we will be going to Ukraine to do the same thing.
