GEORGIE for the Simon Family

UKRAINE We have been home for 2 months now, and Georgiy is adjusting wonderfully. He has learned so much in such a short time! Where has the little boy gone who walked with a stagger and who could not even suck on a bottle? His walking has improved tremendously. He graduated from figuring out how […]

Andrija (Max) for the Huff Family

SERBIA When people ask me why we adopted, I tell them “Max was a lightening bolt.”  By that I mean, when you ask for a sign of guidance in your life, usually the signs are subtle and quiet.  But this decision was one that was undeniably right for us.  I found Reece’s Rainbow through a friend […]

LERA for the Green Family

UKRAINE We are finally home.  Our plans changed on our journey but our little Lera is so much a part of our family that we cannot imagine what life would have been without her addition.  We are happy to report that she adores her brother Michael, is skeptical about the cats,  and while she and […]

SASHA for the McClain Family

UKRAINE We find it hard to believe that Caleb has already been with us here in Idaho for one month.  With his sparkly blue eyes, adorable smile and wonderful giggle, we all just love him to pieces.  He gets tons of attention from his 4 older brothers and sisters as well as from Mommy and […]

EVAN for the Rieben Family

UKRAINE When we began our international adoption journey in March 2007, we never could have imagined the incredible blessings that the Lord had in store for our family. After committing to adopt our son Joshua from Uzbekistan, we began to feel the familiar nudge of the spirit that someone was still missing. From the first moment […]

DUOC (Paige) for the Litzke Family

VIETNAM Paige is home and doing wonderfully.  She has adjusted so well and we just cannot imagine what life was like before she came home.  Other than the “waiting”…we don’t miss that part one bit.  LOL  But, it was so worth it!  She has mastered using a sippy cup.  Whew….that took about a month, but […]

OKSANA for Robel Family

UKRAINE “Adopting that child will be the best thing you could ever do for Alaina” Those were the words of advice from our dear friend Florence.   She should know.  She adopted her son Josh  after his birth mother placed him for adoption when he was diagnosed with Down syndrome shortly after birth.  Florence’s biological son, James who […]

MASHA for the Saunders Family

UKRAINE Because of Reece’s Rainbow we found an adorable little girl that was in need of a forever family and we were a forever family in need of an adorable little girl! What a perfect match! After staring at her picture for several months it still amazes us all that she is really here enhancing […]

MARIA for the Riggi Family

RUSSIA It’s hard to believe we have had Masha home with us for three months already.  In some ways it seems like she’s been here forever while in other ways it seems like just yesterday we were anticipating her arrival.  Luckily, Masha has transitioned into our lives very easily.  Our friends and family even think […]

Born on August 8, 2006 My name means “helper” Although we do not have a way to contact Ofelia’s family, as she was placed directly through her agency, the agency has told us that she IS home now.
