Welcome!

Welcome to our new blog! I didn't think I'd be blogging again, but here we are! Back in December Mark and I saw a 15 year old boy who was about to age out of the orphanage. When that happens, the Eastern European country gives him around $30 and a bag of belongings and out he/she goes. They normally have no family and no where to go. We know who and what waits for them. It's not a good life.

Mark and I both looked at each other and knew, without words, what the other was thinking....go get him! He's your son! So we've started the process of adopting Jonathan. He just turned 16 the end of December.

So please join us on another adventure!

  7. That's amazing! I know his sweet face has haunted a couple of my friends. When do you go get him? Is it a full dossier process or is it quicker due to his age?

  10. May the Lord direct and bless you all. Don't you wish you could just buy him a plane ticket?----Sigh---(Yes, I know ALL the reasons for the safety of the kids to have to go through the whole process)----but, I sure wish they could/would streamline things in some cases.....WE will be praying for you!!
