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!!

For My Children, My Husband & My Family...

This journey to bring two little orphans, two little sweet strangers into our home has not been easy. We spent a lot of prayer & time and hard work into raising money to adopt them. And God managed to RAISE it ALL. Mom & Dad spent a lot of time away from you (missing you terribly), and wishing we could be there with you; & Yet knowing that God was leading our path and that He would sustain us. You have sacrificed not having me at your first day of school, your soccer games, your football games, your gymnastics meets, and even the hospital when you were sick. You have sacrificed not having me to help you with your homework, to hold you in my arms, to tuck you in at night, and to pray with you. All of this you have SACRIFICED for your brothers, just as Christ sacrificed for us. Because of your willingness to love these boys, they will NOT be put away in an institution where they would be left in bed for hours on end, with little to no interaction, where they would have lived out their short little lives unloved. Instead they will be welcomed in to a family where they will receive something they have never had before... LOVE! All of you are mighty little women & men of God and I am so proud of each one of you for your sweet spirits, your loving hearts, and your warm souls. Our lives will never be the same, and I am thankful that God chose OUR family to LOVE two of his beloved children. Today there are two less orphans in the world!!!!! I Love Every one of YOU... ~Mom
