Introducing......

 
As you may know we have been going through the process of international adoption for the past year. We are finally at the point where we have made a commitment to a little boy in Eastern Europe. It is with great joy that we introduce you to the sweetest boy.
  His orphanage name is Trent but of course that is not his real name. This little boy has spent his entire life in an orphanage. He has no arms as you can see and only one leg which is not formed correctly. If we are lucky enough to be granted the right to adopt him, he would see an orthopedic specialist at BC Children’s Hospital and a physiotherapist in hope that he will be able to get around on his own.

Trent does not know what it means to have someone love him the way a Mommy and Daddy would. Orphanage life is not easy and we pray that one of the orphanage workers will show him affection and love but we are just desperate to get to him as soon as possible. Please understand how urgent this is.  Please help us bring him home!

We would love for you to join us in praying for Trent’s adoption. Please pray with faith that God would move mountains to bring him home. We are praying that the process will go smoothly. That we will have safe travel. That the judge will approve us. That God will through his miraculous provision provide the necessary funds. And most of all….that people will accept him and be excited with us.
 
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress…” James 1:27a

  4. Congratulations! Trent is such a handsome little fellow. I was excited to see him on the MFFM page and then even more excited when I realized his parents are Canadians! We aren't officially using RR, but we're adopting a 2.5 year old boy with Down syndrome from Bulgaria. We live in Saskatoon, SK but my parents recently moved to Abbotsford from Germany. So maybe someday we can meet! I don't have a blog but you can email me at carol(at)alteredegg-dot-com if you like.

  6. Hello, first I wanted to say that I read your previous post and I am very sorry for your loss. I pray that the Lord brings you peace.

    I found your blog through reeces rainbow. My husband and I have always discussed international adoption.

    The moment I saw Trent I was in love, I spent the remainder of my day thinking and praying for him. Asking God that if he was meant to be with us that he make it possible, and if not that he would bring the most loving family. We have a tenth month old son and so I knew that I needed to give it all over to the Lord. I was anxious for an answer to my prayers, I decided to email and inquire about him.

    To be honest when I woke up the next morning he was the first thought that jumped in my head and I raced downstairs to check and see if my email had been answered. It was bittersweet because the reply told me that they had just received a commitment for sweet Trent. I was so happy that he had a commitment and I have checked everyday to see who has decided to give this little boy all the cuddles and love that he deserves.

    I was so happy to see your blog, you seem like a wonderful family I am elated that the Lord has brought you and Trent together.

    I also have to say that I really felt the Lord spoke to me about calling Trent, Gabriel. So I thought alright if he is meant to be with us that will be his name. A new name for a fresh and wonderful start. After I saw the email I figured ok well I guess I was off. I thought that I would still look up the meaning of the name. You can believe my surprise when the name meaning was able-bodied. I was in tears because that is my wish and prayer for this little man.

    God bless you, I cannot wait to here how it all goes and I am excited to see him arrive home to your caring and loving arms.

    How exciting that you are from BC, we are in Edmonton, Alberta. I will be committing to you in prayers and will be sending financial support. I thought I had found reeces rainbow by accident, but I now know that was not the case. Oh and my name is Beth, I had a really tough time trying to post a comment : )

  13. Hi Everyone! I am so overwhelmed by the support of the adoption community. Thank-you so much. We are so happy but also of course stressed with paperwork and financial concerns as I'm sure you can all understand. We are just trying to focus on Trent. Today is day one of not eating out at all or buying anything at all other than groceries, gas , and diapers. It's hard to break habits all of a sudden but I can't think of a better reason then our adorable little boy.

  14. I saw you guys on the MFFM page of RR. What an adorable little man! I immediately thought of this documentary which is a must see if you haven't already. It is called "Who are the Debolts?". Netflix has it or you can order if off Amazon for pretty cheap. They have a little girl who was born with no legs and arms only to the elbow. That little girl is unstoppable! I'm sure you guys are swarming with excitement and anticipation. We're also adopting from RR and the fun just doesn't end. "Fun" ;) All the best on your journey!

  17. Congrats! Found you on Reece's Rainbow. We are adopting 'Whitney'. Our stories sound just alike. We were adopting, got pregnant, found out at 11 weeks we lost the baby (but it was measuring about 7 weeks), and started the adoption process again!
