Whole Lotta Holtz – Episode 8

Final Episode – Welcome Home!


  1. Cullen Davidson

    What a beautiful story! Your family is a blessing to many as well as to you. May God continue to lead you. My wife and I adopted 3 siblings from Costa Rica in 1999. Our process was very similar to yours. The process took over 2 years from start to finish. We lived in country 59 days! (We never thought we would get home.) We also used Lifeline as our adoption agency. We lived in Huntsville at the time, now Fairhope. Our children were 2, 4, and 12. The oldest was a brother of 2 young sisters and we couldn’t bear to leave him behind. Today, they are 23, 25 and 32. My son has since moved back to Costa Rica and is bonding with a sister who was adopted by Ticos when she was 3 and he was 6. My middle daughter lives in Tacoma, Washington and my youngest lives here in Fairhope. The girls have forgotten most of their Spanish, unfortunately, but my son is still fluent. I can’t wait to hear and see more of your story! I’ve watched and cried through every episode.

    Your family is a real inspiration to me. An example of a Christian couple pouring their lives into others. Watching each episode has brought tears of joy to me. God bless you all.

  6. Tim Garrett

    You guys have created a bond with us and we feel like we know you and absolutely love your family! (Though we have never met!) It is time for your own television show!

  7. Nancy Hunter

    Once again you guys blow me away with your selflessness, your commitment to the Lord, and the immense love you have for ALL your children! The world truly needs more people like you…you are such wonderful examples! Would love for these episodes to continue! God bless!
