One More Orphan

We will be bringing home a second child!! "Lucien" is in Sydney's region in Eastern Europe and we will be adopting him in addition to Sydney. One look at him and we were head over heals in love.
Lucien has down syndrome just like Sydney.

Yes, despite the pink, he IS a little boy. In orphanages children do not "own" anything at all. Not even clothes belong to them. They are put in whatever is handy. You can see from this picture, that not only are the clothes too big for him, they were also meant for a girl.  We can hardly wait to bring him home and put him in little boy clothes.

Matthew 18:5“And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.”
16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

God gave his son up, so that we may live an everlasting life. Is it too much to ask of us, to give up eating out every day, or giving up Starbucks coffee, or that trip to Hawaii to save a child? To offer a child a family? We are more than willing to give up these things to save the life of a child. We do it gladly.  

We made the News!!

Our Blogs
We have two blogs. This one which gives you just the basics and the facts of our adoption but without any of the personal day to day stuff.
Or we have the more personal side of our adoption journey, which also talks about our family in addition to our adopting. We welcome you to visit that blog at  http://becauseyouareloved.blogspot.com/

Thank you for taking an interest in our story. We hope that you will follow along on our journey. We have made amazing friends through this process. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers!!
