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!!

One Surgery Down....Yay!!!

Levi's surgery went well yesterday. He no longer has tonsils, adenoids, or any teeth; but he gained a pair of ear tubes...Yay! We are still in the hospital. He is still struggling to keep his oxgen saturation up so he remains on oxygen & he has not been able to empty his bladder on his own since surgery. His pain is under control & he is resting well. Please continue to pray specifically for his breathing, that he would drink better & that his bladder would start working on it's own. We are grateful for all the words of encouragement and prayers. Will keep you all updated:)


  1. Thinking of your little guy. Hope he has a speedy recovery.

  2. Thank you for sharing your blog with me. As I read it tears stream down, my heart breaks for all the children who need homes. My husband and I are prayerful that the Lord would use us in leading youth to Christ. We are daily broken by the world and it's abandonment of our precious children and youth. We believe with all of our hearts that there is hope and healing in our strong Savior! It was encouraging talking with you and hearing your stories of the Lord's amazing provision and to witness the unhindered joy and hope in your little boy's eyes and smile. "Give thanks to the Lord for he is good and His love endures forever!" Psalm 106:1

  3. We are so glad Levi's surgery is over and we will continue to lift him up in prayer that his O2 levels come up, his bladder begins to work and he drinks more!

    We live near Lubbock and look forward to getting these precious kids together one day!

    In Him, Debbie and Jeff
