Every year Alex and Charlene travel to SC for a family vacation. They enjoy attending their away from home church and have been embraced by the SC congregation. In the summer of 2000, Charlene was given the opportunity to speak at that church. During her presentation, so many hearts were touched by her words that she distributed over 50 Christian Adoption business cards. Additionally, she passed out Christian Adoption couple profiles that she'd printed from the Christian Adoption web site. Later a woman in tears approached Charlene and said,

"God's timing is perfect. Our 16 year old daughter is pregnant and she wants to place her baby for adoption. We didn't know where to go or who to ask for help. You've touched my heart and have already helped me so much. Please give me more information."

Charlene was willing to seek God's will first and foremost. She was willing to surrender her heart to His guidance. As a result, many lives were healed and helped by her testimony.

Upon her return home, Charlene shared, 

"If we'd been matched with birth parents already, I wouldn't have been motivated to stand in front of a church congregation and speak about adoption. I wouldn't have passed out the Christian Adoption cards, affected the lives of others, and been available to offer assistance. I suggested to the woman that asked for help, that she call you, review the Christian Adoption web site, and I gave her a Christian Adoption profile to read. God was blessing us by leading us to return to this place, to go on vacation at this time, to open the door for me to speak, and to minister to others. What an opportunity to give! If we're chosen to adopt this baby, to Him be the glory! We will continue to surrender our hearts to Him. We're excited and very thankful about this opportunity to reach out to others while on vacation!"


(Alex & Charlene returned to SC in 2001 for their annual vacation, with their Christian Adoption son!)
