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!

Lift them up....

The journey....long yet perfect and totally "custom made" by God. Yet not easy, adoption requires strength you never knew you had, and some days, the strength seems to be gone, and you find your self on your knees in cries of desperation to the Almighty. Today, I have two very special blogging friends who I am asking for prayer ...Meghan and Pam, both of whom I am posting below. I ask you to please take a look at their blogs, take a moment of prayer to lift them up or post a word or scripture or encouragement for them on their blog, this can make all the difference. They have both been wonderful encourager's to me as well as spiritual guiders. "May the Lord bless you and keep you dear friends, the Lord shine His face upon you, and give you Peace forever".
Much love in Him, Susie

Thank you so much for all your kind words and encouragement. I am truly touched. I really believe that this is one of the MANY things that the Lord has shown me during this process - members of the body that I have never met are praying for me - that's incredible. Again, many thanks!!
