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!

9 Hours....And Were Off!

In 9 hours, our flight takes off for Guatemala! It's been an emotional day for me...an hour ago, my parents came and took the boys. Ugh...hard to ever have any leave the flock if even just for a night. It's been a 2 year journey for our entire family, and now, its only 9 hours away. Dave and I will spend the day together in Guatemala before being reunited with our daughter Monday morning at 8:30 am.

Too stand in His glory, that has truly been my hearts desire. I am truly excited to experience all God has planned for us on this trip.

On a side note, my Dad is also leaving tomorrow for Haiti on a Mission Trip. Please keep Him in your prayers.

Signing off...my next post will be from Guatemala.

Love to all, Susie
