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!

Me Amigos!


I just had to post this picture....I will post pics of our weekend tomorrow, but this is over due. This is what happens when six siblings (my 4 brothers, sister and I) and their spouses get together at the cottage....we stay up till 3:30 am laughing, talking, break dancing, eating and dancing. Had anyone walked by the cottage, they would have thought we were having a wedding the way we were dancing around. This all took place 4th of July weekend. I just have to give the Lord a praise for these people, I love my siblings, sister-in-laws and brother-in-law with all my heart. They are one of my greatest treasures, there are just no words to thank God for all they are to me, my husband and my kids. I love you all, may the party continue.

Looks like a blast!!!!!! Rock on! I love break dancing. I was getting too old to do it so I had to retire it. Courtney
