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!

Per request of a forum friend, I am posting a scenerio that played out last night at my home.

I decided to boil Bella's new bottle nipples last night. From the other room, my husband (Dave) yells "What are you doing?" and I promptly responded with out thinking
" burning my nipples". Now as soon as it came out of my mouth I knew it didn't sound right. There was complete silence and then I hear my 13 year old say to himself quietly but with expression....."What?" That was it, I was gone in laughter. A half hour goes by and as I walk past the living room my husband says with a smile on his face, "so how are your nipples?". I said, "their HOT!" Too funny. It all transpired by accident...thought I would bring a smile to some of your faces.
