James ( Otto)
Wow, what an amazing journey The Lord has James and Trish on! They are so excited for what the future holds and can not wait to get their babies home. James and Trish have been together nine years and married for four. They have two biological children, Gracie and Joshua. Trish’s life has always revolved around children; including babysitting, working with children at church, working at day cares, majoring in Child Development, and then finally having children of her own. James also has a huge place in his heart for children, so they knew even as they dated as teenagers that they would adopt one day. They were not sure when that day would be, but as God opened door after door they realized that the time was now!
They first found precious Rhys and committed to him right away. Around the time that they found Rhys they also found Mirabel. They prayed for Mirabel everyday and thought about her constantly. After several weeks of pouring their hearts out to God and seeking His wisdom and will for their lives they were given a peace that passes all understanding. With in 24 hours of each other they both knew that Mirabel was theirs!!
Their two year old daughter, Gracie, carries Rhys and Mirabel’s pictures everywhere and talks about them constantly. To her they are already her siblings. The waiting is hard and they have just began the process. What a sweet day it is going to be when they get to hold them for the very first time. Our God is so good and they know that He is going to provide what they need to get their little ones home. With the addition of Mirabel the financial burden becomes a little heavier, but they will do whatever is necessary to raise the funds. If you feel called to help, they would forever be grateful. Thank you for taking the time to read their story. God bless you.
