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!

Blessed be His Name!

Please give the Lord a shout for me today! My very good friend Jenifer received her daughter Ana's Mixco Birth Certificate today after a 4 month wait! As I have posted before, this is a document that should only take a week at the most. I am literally a river of tears.....God has answered our prayers, He has broken the Stronghold of corruption, He is faithful to those who love and serve Him. Our day 30 is Monday the 10th, the Civil Registry has been typically releasing them day 33....I will still say "today". Please continue to pray for our Mixco Birth Certificate to be approved with NO previews today in His name. We believe it to already be done and we thank you dear Lord for the BC's you have given. I am just so happy for my dear friend.....sweet Ana is coming home! She's coming home.

Susie,
I'm praying that the new week brings you good news! I'm very happy for your friend and we'll be sharing that same happiness with you soon! I know God is using you in this situation. Just think how many people may have stumbled on to your blog the same way that I did. They will all see your wonderful faith and strength in God and will be blessed the same way that I have been. I'll continue to pray!
