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!

"Welcome" to 2010

Last night, we welcomed 2010 with friends.  Ok, we really didn't hang out until 12:00 when the ball dropped and 2010 was officially here, but does that really matter?  I don't think so.  It was a time for good friends to get together and have a great time.  I know personally, I'm looking forward to what 2010 has to offer. 

Today I feel at a loss for words, so I'm just going to share some of my favorite pictures from the evening:

Pearl: - isn't she just precious?

This one is for my brother-in-law:  a plate full of creme puffs... if only he could have been here

Anna in her shades - what a super star!

Sorry I don't have much else to share today.  I have been busy taking down Christmas decorations.  The house is now nearly back in order, and I just thought I would take a minute to share these pictures.

Here's to a wonderful 2010 for all of our friends and family!

In Christ,
