INTRODUCING...

As you all know our dossier was submitted on February 24, 2011. It was on that day that we found out Marlena had passed away and John Mark is no longer available at this time for adoption. Our hearts were deeply grieved and saddened at the lost of these 2 precious babies. We will always remember them. We will continue to pray for John Mark and his birth parents. He is still living in an orphanage and will continue to until either he turns 4 and goes to an institution (the WORST possible case), by God's grace his parents could find a way to care for him in their home, or they allow him to be adopted. Please continue to pray for him and his birth parents.

Our dossier was still submitted, so we are still prepared to proceed with adoption. We now proudly introduce...Aurora















and Leigha.
We are so excited to be bringing home these 2 BEAUTIFUL girls.

  6. Congratulations! They are beautiful indeed...

    Just a quick note about "John Mark"... Worst case scenario, at 4-5 he will be transferred to an orphanage for older children with special needs, not an institution. It is a good facility (actually much better than where he is now) with loving staff and he will remain there until 18. Of course it cannot replace a family but I wanted you to know.

  8. I saw the new photos on Reece's Rainbow this morning. So excited for your family and these two sweet angels. I know they won't replace the two little ones that you lost but what a blessing they will be to you and you to them. Also very happy to read Andrea's comment above regarding John Mark...though my hope is still that he will know the love of a family.

  10. What perfect, beautiful babies! I know you guys have gone through so much in such a short time, but once again God has proven that when he closes a door he opens a window. You all, these two lovely girls, and John Mark and family will all be in my prayers.

  11. So, so excited for you! We are praying for John Mark's family as well. Maybe they would be willing to have him adopted if they could have updates and pics sent etc. We'll see what God does in this situation.
    These too little girls are beautiful and beyond blessed to be part of your family!

  13. Aww, so glad to hear this news! They look like such sweet little girls. I am still sad for John Mark, but can say I agree with Andrea. He will be loved more in the place he will go next than where he is, unless he gets to know the love of a family which will be even better :)

  14. They are beautiful! I make pillowcases and blankets to honor my angel, Kristen. I was wondering if there is something, a color or something that reminds you of Marlena, I would love to send you something in remembrance of her. Thanks, Polly

  16. What beautiful little girls! How could anyone in any culture believe they aren't worthy of love and life? These girls are very blessed that God is giving them parents that have such a passion to make their lives something beautiful. Love you and praying that all goes smoothly. I can't wait to meet my nieces in person!
