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!

I hope you enjoyed our Saviour's Birthday! We talked about you and your family and sure wished we lived closer. I think we met one year ago this next week and I'm so thankful to God for that! I love you, Sus!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to our family in Michigan. We wish we could be there to celebrate the King's birth with you, but will settle for praying and loving you from Washington. Hoping and praying that the next year brings amazing healing and God's holy presence as you continue to fight against Bella's disease. God bless.

Hoping you all had a wonderful Christmas. We have been praying for you since Bella's diagnoses. We are believing in God's perfect plan for your entire family and in His healing hand for your little angel.

Praying 2009 brings more blessings and miracles.

Happy Holidays!
I have no idea how you got such a great family picture. We try and try and have one less than you and haven't been able to accomplish it yet.
I hope you have a great 2009!
Your family is always in my thoughts and prayers.
