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!

Making Progress!

We have made it through the first step in the process with our DNA Apt being last week Friday. DNA is a US requirement. Next week Tuesday, Oct. 9th, is our Family Court Apt, this is a Guatemalan requirement where our birth mother meets with an apt. court social worker and Bella. This process is to determine that our Birth Mother desires to give her daughter up for adoption. I can only imagine how difficult this apt. is. Please keep her in your prayers, that God may fill that hole in her heart with himself. The next step in the process is United States Embassy Pre-Approval. Thanks for checking in,
