Merry Christmas 2018. Our second Christmas together in Canada! Lord willing we will gather collectively with all of our children and grand children Jan 6th 2019.

All through our last adoption, ( I’ll call it Adoption Volume.1 ), Rob and I sought to protect our kids from the eyes of the world, to help them heal in a loving, calm environment. To grow and play and do things that all kids do. To stop the questions: ‘where are their parents’? ‘Did they die?’ ‘Were they abused?’ etc. None of these questions needed to be answered.  Not here anyway.  Our kids are doing well, and for that we are thankful.

Going public is now with their consent and understanding that they may face these types of questions in the future.  We hope we have given them some tools as to how to deal with things. We know we have pretty special and wonderful children!.

They know we financed Adoption Volume 1 totally from our own resources and that we are unable to do so again but as they have huge hearts and a love for others they are ok with us sharing this now. If another adoption is to happen, we need YOUR help with Adoption Vol. 2, (Adoption Volume 2 above is a link to our GoFundMe page) So we are humbly asking that you search your heart and see if you feel able to help us make a forever family for more children.

Sharon and I hope, and pray as you follow us down the path of our first adoption you will be inspired to reach out and help other orphans. Maybe even inspired to join with us as we work to bring home more siblings to provide for them a forever family!

This photo alone should touch your heart – such beautiful children but without a family!
