We truly are a family redefined. We are husband, wife, son, daughter, step children, biological and adopted children and most importantly, Children of God.

A friend pointed out that I needed to update my blog header. After our adoption from Ethiopia, I had updated it stating how the adoption of Sara Joy completed our family. Well... the journey continues. After much prayer, we have decided to follow what we feel is God's calling for us...we went to Ghana with the intention of adopting a four year old girl, Isabella Hope. Little did we know that she would be the catalyst to bringing home not only her, but her half brother and sister. We will now be adding not only Isabella Hope to our family, but also Mary Grace (9) and Gilbert (6) who we will transition to the name Nathaniel Timothy. The shock is wearing off and the JOY and EXCITEMENT are overwhelming. Now truly, our family is complete. The great part of journeying with God, is that it's always an adventure. He knows where we are going, and for us it is all a marvelous surprise. Looking forward to sharing our family adventures as we walk daily through life and as we venture off to Ghana to bring home Mary, Nate and Isabella! It's always an adventure redefining our family!

Maddening Monday

Not a whole lot to post about today. I'm super tired and ready to go to bed... and it's only 7:23. It has been a LONG day though. Work was very stressful. I have 4 people out today and the manager from another department it out, so I am covering for him as well. It was a day of endless phone calls and decisions to make. My boss is out as well, and tomorrow all these same people are scheduled to continue to be out - and I have an all day, on site conference scheduled, and so do the two other people who work for me. So, my ENTIRE department will be MIA tomorrow. HOW DID THAT HAPPEN???? No clue. My guess is, I'll be missing the meeting and covering for 7 people. Oh how I look forward to tomorrow :) (not)

I'm done complaining now. I'm going to go crawl into bed and pull the covers over my head like none of this is happening.

Maybe tomorrow will actually be better!

In Christ, (totally surviving only through Him)
