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!

Milestone Monday

4 Weeks ago today, we picked you up at Hannah's Hope to take you home forever. It was the first time we had seen you in 7 months and 1 week. And yet, now that you are home, its as if you have always been with us... in Him, we were never apart.

Today, as we drove home from "the cottage", I looked in my rear view mirror to see Bella laughing as the wind blew her hair. I still cant stop looking at her and thinking "your here, you are physically here". She is an absolute joy, and I thank God for answering the prayer "may she be beautiful to our eye's".

Happy 4 week reunion Ladybug.
