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!

USE Pre-Approval!

We received our USE Pre-Approval on M0nday, Oct. 29th! It took only 3 weeks.....good news as it has been 60 days. We are now waiting on our Family Court Approval from Guatemala and expect that this week as well. Upon our FC Approval, our file will then be turned over to the Guatemalan PGN, it will be given to a PGN advisor who will then review our file of over 300 documents to determine that we meet all the requirements to adopt a child from Guatemala. They will review all documentation that has been gathered on our adoption. Once reviewed, the advisor can either give their stamp of approval or ask for clarification on any document thus "kicking" families out of PGN. We are praying for NO "previews" and believing that we will be out out PGN by Dec. 31, 2007! One thing we are confident in, God is bigger than all of this.....

Thanks for checking in, we are rejoicing in the journey of bringing of Bella home!
