Adoption Fund

19 years ago I married the love of my life, Denise! For years we tried to have children and were not able to for "unknown reasons". We felt a void in our heart for children in our life and could not wait to see how God would provide & fill that void. Over two years ago Denise and I were blessed with two of the most wonderful gifts God has ever given us. Twin boys! We have had the opportunity to care for, fall in love with, stay up all night with, rejoice with, cry with, laugh with and love these boys with all of our heart and soul! Besides Christ himself, these two little wonders have become the center of our world and for that we are truly greatful to those who have helped in every way to make this moment possible.
We are now entering into the final phase of this process which is the adoption process! We are extremely excited, overwhelmed and humbled by how all of this has been orchestrated by our One True God! He had a plan and He has kept his promise! Amen!

This last phase also presents the biggest financial challange we face and for that reason we are creating this "Adoption Fund" page to help raise money for the legal fees that are and will be assessed to make our dream become a reality and our prayers answered by fully, completely and legally having these boys as our children! 

We are asking each of you to pray about the opportunity to help with this fundraiser and if you feel led to, please donate what you are comfortable donating to help our family become whole!
