The Growing Family

As God brought our hearts together as a family to pursue adopting Katie and Christopher several years ago, He has brought us together again with a desire to be a forever family for Anya, Tanya, and Ruslan.

We met Anya and Tanya last summer (2012) through an international hosting program for orphans.  After investing 5 weeks pouring into them, we were gripped with the desire to bring them "home".

For years Anya has prayed for a family, and now God is answering that prayer.  Just as we desired that all may see God clearly through our adoption of Katie and Christopher, we desire that all see the incomprehensible glory of God in what He has now called our family to:  being a forever family for three orphans.

We are now in Eastern Europe to complete the adoption.  Prior to leaving the U.S., I asked Katie if she was excited about her new sisters and brother coming home.  She said she was "happy, but kind of sad."
"Why are you kind of sad?"
"Because all the other kids at the orphanage still need a family."

If you would like to follow the work God is doing for Anya, Tanya, and Ruslan, please go to:

To God be the glory!
