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!!

Birth Certificates...Yeah Baby!!

A LOT has happened since my last post. I won't bore you with all the details, BUT Praise God we finally have NEW Birth Certificates!!!! What an ordeal...So, now that we have the birth certificates we can move forward. Yay! Monday we will be picking up the boys to take them to get pictures done for passports & then they will go back to the orphanage until Wednesday. That means WEDNESDAY should be "Gotcha Day" Then we will have their medicals done & apply for visa's. Their Visa's should be ready on Thursday & then we are outta here on Friday!!!

The best part of the day yesterday... My sister-in-law Molly arrived!!! Woot! Woot! It has been so nice having someone you love with you after 3 weeks of being away from family & I am so thankful that she could come to help bring her nephews HOME:) Please pray that the paperwork process goes smoothly, and PLEASE start praying for our journey home. Ha!!! It should be an interesting trip home...

And...Yes, It does say Charlie Josiah & Levi Preston:)


  1. Hooray!!! So glad you have this important piece complete :)

  2. Yay!!! Maybe I'll see you at the US Embassy and we can go out for lunch or dinner??
