This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

She said YES!!

The judge finally said YES to our petition to adopt our four children. We can finally call them ours!!!

And, because of this great news, we can finally introduce to you our two sons and two daughters:

Maynara (10), Abraão Lucas (7), Luana (5) and Brayan (4)
Praise God!!!

Psalm 105

1 Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name;
make known among the nations what he has done.

2 Sing to him, sing praise to him;

tell of all his wonderful acts.

3 Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice.

4 Look to the LORD and his strength;
seek his face always.

Brent & I are overjoyed for you all Kim & James!! We have been so looking forward to the day when God answered all the collective prayers and revealed your family! We are praising Him for His faithfulness, and know that even in our moments of greatest fears He was working His great will in the lives of Maynara, Abraão Lucas, Luana and Brayan, and of course James & Kim! We are anxious for the day when you are all home safe in CT and are excited to get to know each one of these precious children & their unique personalities.
