'Mazing Monday - Bellie Spitz AND Faithful Friday - The Spitz Family

Update: Charlie is has been adopted by a family in her own country, and the Spitz's are now bringing home Gavin.

Yes, it's Tuesday, so I don't know why I'm doing a Faithful Friday and/or a 'Mazing Monday! But I couldn't do one without the other because they are the same AWESOME family!

Sweet Isabelle, or Bellie! Her mommy and daddy met her in the middle of Dec, and she became Isabelle Maria Spitz on December 30th, 2010!! Some pictures from while she was still in country - 

And now, look at her!

She is amazing, and has thrived so much in the care of her loving family!


Meet  Charlie! (Macie on RR)

And her wonderful family working to bring her home!

Their FSP off of RR -

The Spitz family would have never believed if you had told them 5 years ago that they would be working on their 4th adoption in 2011.  They had already been blessed with Taylor (now 17), Conor (now 16) and Nicholas (now 13).  But in 2007 when they were placed with a beautiful blond hair foster son their view on adoption changed quickly.  Then in 2008 they were placed with a foster daughter, a sweet tiny little girl who proved instantly she too would be a part of their forever family.  The Spitz family was beyond BLESSED to adopt Owen (3 yrs) and Sara (2 yrs) in 2010.  In February 2010 Summer read an article about Reece’s Rainbow in People magazine.  She was so drawn to the article that she got right on the RR website!  After just a few moments on the RR site it was apparent to her that she needed to talk to the rest of her family about adopting a sweet child blessed with an extra chromosome.  The family was all on the same page and they couldn’t be prouder to announce they adopted precious Isabelle (3 yrs) from Eastern Europe in January 2011.  The journey to adopt Isabelle was incredible but the children they left behind will always way heavy on their hearts.  So they continued to browse the RR site and view all the children still waiting and then there SHE WAS!!  The little girl that would also need to come home to the Spitz Family!!!  They are crazy excited to bring home this Amazing Little Girl that they would love to name Charlie.  The wondrous blessing of having a child with Down syndrome is something they say they don’t know how they lived with out prior to Isabelle coming home.  Now the dream of having two lovely little girls blessed with that extra chromosome is only months away!!  The Spitz family is truly grateful!!!!  Please help this family by supporting them with prayer and please visit the family blog and donate a $1 or $2 toward this new journey.  They Thank You!!!!

Follow the Spitz family's adoption journey on their blog at www.luckytolovelyla.blogspot.com  

$15.00 is available towards the cost of my adoption!

They are dear friends of our family, esp my mom who met them in country last December. Isabelle was at the same orphanage as our Elijah. I am thrilled for them that they are going back! Charlie cheeks are just like their Owen's! :) Please consider donating to this wonderful family, and help them rescue their next princess!!!
