Our family is a little bit “yours, mine and ours” and we’ve truly been blessed by God’s grace.
Adoption has always weighed heavy on Our hearts, was not an option; or so we thought.
In 2015 we saw a photo of a little boy in a blue sweater, and in that very moment we knew we were his parents. The crazy part is that We were not yet married, but it was a requirement for the country the little boy was in. Around 6 weeks later we married and began all our paperwork! In February 2016 we welcomed home our son, Pasha!
Pasha has graced our lives in more ways then we ever imagined. He is funny, intelligent, handsome and thriving in our family. It is a blessing to be able to teach him and watch him grow.
At Christmas 2016 we prayed for wisdom and strength in the decision to return to Ukraine once more. This time we are also adopting a sweet baby boy who also has Down Syndrome. He is roughly two years old and we are anticipating his arrival which should be soon!
