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!

Still Waiting......................

It will be 9 weeks tomorrow that we have been in the Guatemalan Court System called PGN. We expect to get news of our approval any day. The wait for the official news is hard at times, but we are confident that God has answered our prayer and we believe that Bella is Approved with PGN. Upon approval, our birth Mother will sign final declaration and Bella will legally be our daughter.

We should receive new photos next week as well as the medical update report, however, the camera's at our private orphanage were stolen during the Christmas season and there may be a delay in photos. No worries, were heading to Guatemala soon to bring Bella home...

Please keep our process in your prayers and all the families in Guatemala who are also waiting to bring their children home. Especially our good friends the VanZantens, Culps and Buwalda's. We all have girls at the same orphanage.

Blessings to all, thank you for checking in on us. We will have amazing news very soon.
