Why is a family with six wonderful healthy children spending time and money to go overseas (twice!) to bring home a baby with special needs??

Proverbs 24:12 -
"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we do not know what to do.
God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls knows we know and holds us responsible to act."

and on a MUCH happier note...

"I have been waiting here all my life for you."

"Nuff said.


  1. I read the Schwenzer family's blog post and I just knew it was God's will that the little boy will live with them. That was meant to happen. The girl they are adopting is also a miracle, $20,000 was raised for her adoption within a few days.

  2. All your kids are beautiful! Baby Henry will be a great addition to your family!

  3. I am a mom of 8, (5 through domestic adoptions)I am just beginning to respond to the Lords not so gentle nudging to adopt another, this time internationally. I really needed to read this today THANK YOU!!

  4. You have a beautiful family! Henry will fit right in!

    Thanks for posting on Carrington and the Schwenzers. So happy. To see little Julia finally in the arms of those who love her.
