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!

Weve moved up on the Waiting List!

We are thrilled to announce that we received word today that we are now #30 on the girl waiting list. 6 baby girls were placed last month. We received notice of our new number the first week of every month. Our progress is significant and we are excited that things are progressing this well.

Last night I was priviliged to be part of a friends daughters Home Coming from Guatemala. It was a precious moment to watch them walk down the runway with that beautiful little girl. Although we are excited for our own moment, I truly enjoyed the their moment and I am so thrilled for them that their daughter is finally home at 6 1/2 months of age.
