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!

Snow Bunny






Bella loves the SNOW! Thank goodness, because we get plenty of it. She loves to play in it, lay in it and especially loves to eat it. Her "boys" as she calls them, took her out at night to play in the snow and sled down the driveway snow mounds. When it was time to come in 45 minutes later, she cried and cried. She is definitely a product of her environment being that she was born in a country called "eternal Spring".

Chemo and Spinal Tap on Monday, along with her monthly start to steroids and the newly added med of the month "PROZAC"! Ahhhh..........the happy pill.

We had plenty of snow here, but it is so cold we can only go out for brief moments of time.
