The family at Niagara Falls 2016

The family at Niagara Falls 2016

We are a growing military family currently stationed at West Point, NY and living in Highland Falls, NY.  Joey is an Army Chaplain and Carrie is a homemaker and home-school teacher. We have ten children – Gaige (22), Corin (13), Grace (11), Chaela (11), Caitlin (8), Carrigan (6), Claire (6), Charlotte (6), Griffin (4), and Garrick (2), and Gwendolin (newborn!)

We adopted Charlotte in March of 2013, and Carrigan in April of 2015, and Chaela in March of 2016.  While Charlotte had significant developmental delays, Carrigan is a cancer survivor,  and Chaela was born was serious heart issues, they are all in excellent health and adjusted better and faster than we expected.  We now have some family stability with a few years of break from deployments, and we want to take advantage of this since we now know what to expect from the adoption process. We are excited about giving another orphan a forever family and raising him in a home emphasizing the love of Christ as well as also receiving the blessing that the addition of each child is to our family.

We received pre-approval from China on September, and we are hoping to travel in late spring/early summer of 2017 to bring him home! (Update: We brought Chad home in July of 2017)
