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!

4.5 month Update!!!

Our Bella girl is growing, but only in weight! We received our update today, she is now 15 lbs and 24" long. So she's my "little chunk"! Cant wait to kiss her cheeks. Everyday we get closer.

I love your blog. I saw your post on adoption.com and had to view your blog. What a lovely family you are blessed with! We actually bought one of the sweaters when in Guatemala in Dec. for our baby girl! Our blog is http://harrisquest.blogspot.com. Hopefully, you will get your out this week and we will be close behind you! Cheri Harris
