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!

Family Court Complete!

Today we received word that our Family Court went through with flying colors! We are currently awaiting our DNA results which will send us in to the US Embassy for Pre-Approval. The Family Court Study will be done in 4-6 weeks and when complete will be submitted in to Guatemalans PGN which can take 6-8 weeks with out any previews. Previews are when the Guatemalan PGN case worker questions a document in case file which is over 300 pages! Please be praying for God's mind to be bound to our US Embassy Caseworker and that our Pre-Approval will be processed quickly and efficiently as well as for the PGN case worker who will receive our referral that he/she will have a heart for adoption and our family. That the mind of Christ will be bound to his/her mind and that they will process our file to approval with out any previews.

No word yet on the results of the Guatemala 5000, please continue to make your calls, emails and faxes. Leaving a message is just fine to the senators, congressman and UNICEF!

Thank you for all your love and support,

Still praying. Sounds like you are still getting good news though. God is so faithful.
