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!

Visit to Missouri

It was time for our annual visit to spend time with Cheri and Malaena and family. It was wonderful and always so hard to leave. We had a blessed time and Cheri took wonderful photos of the girls.

Bella had a spinal tap today and chemo and started her monthly dose of steroids again. She is doing GREAT and has the most gorgeous head of hair. It's just glows and announces "God's Glory" to all who see her.

Spring arrived 2 weeks early this year, we have even had several days of summer! It's been such a blessing.

Thanks for checking in. Blessings!
