Not a lot of words needed today.



A family has found their boy.  Vladik doesn’t know it yet, but in just a few months, Lord willing, he will be a beloved son, orphan no more.


We are rejoicing and we can’t wipe the grins off our face or the tears off our cheeks.

Oh the joy he will bring to his family.  UNBELIEVABLE.




The family wishes to remain private right now, until they are further along in the adoption process.  There are many unknowns in adopting from this country, so please pray with us for a speedy process with favor all along the way. Just know that they are doing everything they can to get to their boy as quickly as possible!  We will share more when we are able.



Hold on baby boy, Mommy and Daddy are comin’ for ya!  WAHOOOOO!!!!!

“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.”  John 14:18

    God is Good! Praise Him for finding Vladik a home. He has come so far and I can’t imagine how far he will continue to go! He has always been a happy boy…can’t even think about how much more joy he will have when he is finally at home. Thank you new mommy and daddy. May your process be smooth and without too many hiccups. I will be praying!

    I found your blog a few days ago and immediately fell in love with this boy. It hurt me very deeply that we aren’t in a financial position to even qualify for adoption right now and that I couldn’t bring him home. Oh thank God! Vladik has a family! A FAMILY! Praise Jesus!

    I found your blog a few days ago and I immediately fell in love with this boy. It hurt knowing that we aren’t in a financial position to even qualify for adoption right now, and knowing we couldn’t just go and seek him out and bring him home. Thank God, He is good! Vladik has a family!!!

    I will never ever forget this boy after meeting him on a mission trip 5 years ago. Vladik won over my heart and so many others. What I remember the most was his contagious smile and sweet, affectionate ways. We will pray for all the details ahead! This family is getting a true treasure.
