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!

Thank You Stacy and Isabella for the "Thankful Thursday" pic!

Today I am thankful for:

1. It's clear blue skies and 77 degrees! Gorgeous fall day.

2. That even with the "predictions" on the news, I live in God's Economy and not in this worlds! Therefore, I have no fear and live an abundant life in Christ!

3. For the soon to be homecoming of SOPHIE! Our friends David and Sissel received their daughters Mixco BC and she will be coming home in about 4 weeks or less. Praise the Lord!

What are you thankful for?
