Isaac Adopts a Sibling!

This photo was taken the moment our son was put into my arms for the first time. This was the moment we became a family ... the most beautiful moment of our lives.

We are Halis Sirimoglu and Jodi Renshaw. We adopted our son, Isaac, from Port-au-Prince, Haiti back in 2005/2006. He is the most wonderful, generous, loving, soul we have ever met. And now this sweet boy wants desperately to be a big brother.

He has worked hard already to fund raise toward this effort. And he will continue to work toward his goals with local fundraisers, yard sales, lemonade stands, etc. He is quite determined. And we are incredibly proud to live in a community that supports his efforts.

We have been so blessed as Isaac's parents. And we can only begin to imagine how blessed we will be to become parents to another wonderful soul. Our family has so much love to give.

Back in 2005, we were able to pay for Isaac's adoption without any assistance. But, as uncomfortable as it feels, we recognize that we will need to reach out to our community this time in order to grow our family.

We are offering rewards for donations, as we feel it is important to give back to those that help us on this journey. These rewards can always be tailored to the needs of the donor. AND NO AMOUNT IS TOO LITTLE! We just want you to be sure that you know how much we appreciate your donation. We know how tough times are for most people. And we feel better earning your donation in some way.

Thank you all so very much for taking the time to read this. And of course for your love, prayers, donations and well-wishes.

To learn more about us and/or to follow our adoption journey, please read our blog.

If you make a donation, please be sure to tell us what we can send you as a gift or to meet the needs of your reward package.

With Love,
Halis, Jodi & Isaac
