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!

Snow Day #5!


I think that may boys may have been home at least 1 day every week since returning back to school after the holidays. We had snow day #5 today, its so cold the 8" of snow we received Sunday morning cant melt and roads are completely snow covered and iced. So here we are.....no school Thurs or Fri this week as the teachers have training. A slight disruption to my weekly schedule, but its up to me to receive the joy the Lord has already given me today.

Today marks 2 weeks of our Mixco Birth Certificate wait, so not worried, I know the Lord has this covered and that we already have it. We are just waiting on the manifestation of that BC.

Bella's Diaper Bag arrived today, ordered it from LL Bean...it's one of their boat bags, It's pink, black and white. It's the first thing I have ordered with her name on it and it's WONDERFUL!

Below is a picture I posted of the flowers my husband gave me when we received our PGN Approval! This is only the 4th time I have received a dozen roses from my hubby, I received the other 3 when giving birth to our 3 boys. This time, my roses are PINK!

"Some people trust the power of chariots and horses, but we trust you, Lord God. Others will stumble and fall, but we will be strong and stand firm" Psalm 20:7-8

The verse is so good!! I was starting to worry about the wait for the Mixco bc last night. After praying I had a peaceful night of sleep.
Hope we both get them soon.
