Our life is nothing short of an adventure...

Wind in our hair and screams of delight but also unpredictable turns and unknown outcomes. We are a family of six; Dave, Susie, Nate, Jake, Sam, and Bella.

God has been faithful in our marriage and through the birth and blessings of our boys.

God has been faithful during our adoption journey and united Bella with us in May of 2008. We were privileged to visit with Bella's birth mother; therefore, Bella's family in Guatemala will always be dear to our hearts.

On October 16, 2008, Bella was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia. We are now battling the disease with 2 years and 3 months of treatment. We believe God will continue to be faithful!

Our family is committed to living life to the fullest...even on the hard days. Thank you for checking in and journeying with us!

Everythings Coming Up Pink!!!

Our Baby Girl was born the end of August....6 lbs. 8 oz and 18.7" long. She is absolutely beautiful and we are all overwhelmed by God's amazing perfect plan and provision. We fell in love with her the minute we laid eye's on the first email picture.

We will be off to Guatemala Sept. 19th to hold our beautiful daughter, sign Power of Attorney Papers and meet the Birth Mom.

It will take several months to finish the international adoption proceedings, it may be early spring before she is home. But we are believing for God's miracle in getting her home sooner.

We need prayer for the following:
*Safe Travel and God's Love to surround our meeting with Birth Mom
*That the mind of Christ is bound to all AGCI Employees, Us and Government officials that will be handling any and all of Bella's paperwork to finish the adoption
*That our boys will enjoy their time with their grandparents as we fly off to meet their new baby sister
*For God's Love and Peace to fill our Birth Mom in her decision of choosing our family for her daughter. We love and admire her greatly for her sacrifice and gift to our family.

Again, there are not enough words to express how much we appreciate all of you. We are in awe of not only our God in all of this, but in the love and joy we have received from all of you.

Watch for updates and new photos after our trip.
