"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do.
God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows what we know,
and holds us responsible to act." Prov 24:12

When we were preparing to adopt Sasha and actually still to this day, we have heard the why comment a lot. Well, actually, personally we did not have it said to our faces all but a few times but we did hear through the grapevine many a time that people were asking this...

Why would they want to do that?

My first response to this question is always...

Why wouldn't we?

Sasha is a blessing...

Sasha is a miracle...

Sasha has a purpose in life...

and he deserves a chance to live that life and to fulfill his purpose here on earth.

I hope one day that ALL people will see that the 147 million orphans out there, regardless of whether they have a special need or not, deserve a chance at life.


  1. If we were in a position to adopt id adopt in a min..theres two little girls on reeces that i adore..but instead i have helped fundraise and watched others blogs..people need to open there hearts and think of others and realize these children are in great need and adopting them could save there lives give them hope and family..and in the end open your eyes and hearts to others.

  2. Hi Devon, I love your photos of the family. Sasha is adorable, as are all your boys.
