About Us

Hattiesburg, MS, United States
We are a really average family that just can't get over that we have been adopted by an extraordinary God! We are excited and expectant as the journey to enlarge our family unfolds before us.

Morning Update

We just received an update from Galya. N left a letter this morning that said that she does want to be adopted by us. That's a big relief, but K is refusing to be adopted. We are heading to the orphanage in a little while to talk to her in person one more time. We will let you know what happens. I am convinced this is not a battle of flesh and blood but of principalities and powers being fought in the heavenly places and the stakes are much higher than where she will spend her physical days. It is a gospel issue. Whether or not she will be raised to hear about and know the one true King. Please pray!

Love you all,

Rick

Hi. My name is Vicky. I just found your blog today. I live in Brandon, MS. I have adopted from Ukraine as well, as have several of my friends. Our son is now 15 and has been here not quite a year and a half. It has been interesting, challenging, and so worth it to have adopted an older teen. I know you have lots on your mind and lots going on so I will leave you to your adoption craziness. Here is my email if you would like to get in touch, vltygart@att.net. I will pray for your girls and your family as you proceed through this adoption.
Be blessed.
