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!

Star Puffs


"Hey Mom! Is this where the "Star Puffs" go?" "Ah...No sweet heart, little more to your left". Bella is getting better and better every day and eating solid foods. Sadly, were not getting the same great "gag" reflects as were, and she seems to have perfected her star puff eating. She is staring to get them in her mouth, but she keeps more on her cheeks than she does on her lips. She's also really good at pushing around her bananas. My boys loved nanners, she does not care for them mashed or fresh, but she loves to play with them. Just loving this little girl and enjoying every day with her. Thank you again and again Lord that she is home.

We miss you Little Bella Bug! I can't believe we have all been home 2 weeks. In ways, it seems Malaena-Sloan has been here her whole little life! Malae likes the Star Puffs too, but Mama is really faster at eating them!ha! love, cheri
