    We have our precious son Levi. Because Levi was born with HIV, he has been a powerful witness of God’s grace and love. He has been the face of HIV/AIDS for my family and many others- and has brought much understanding and empathy to the issue. We love him and we know God has BIG plans for him. And I love his birth mom for the brave decision she made to place him with us. I want to tell her thank you everyday, because every day I am reminded of what a gift I have.

    I have four beautiful kids and my life has been enhanced immensely. I am very grateful to all those who helped make my son’s story possible – from his birth mother to the caretakers, to the judges, to the adoption agency staffs in two continents. Our son has brought such joy to all those around him.
