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!

Look what happened today....

They say that kids will make liars out of you.... well, I guess that is true.  Remember the post yesterday where I said that Sara didn't like Pearl.  Well, look what I found today....

Sara decided to climb up on Pearl's mat and hang out with her this morning.  It was so cute.  I heard some babbling and I went and looked and there Sara was - hanging out on the corner of Pearl's mat talking to her.  For the girl who screamed every time Pearl walked by, this was amazing.  I think these two are going to end up being best buddies!

In Christ,

You are so lucky! The twins still don't like our dogs much. I'm sorry I didn't get to meet up with you in Ethiopia, but I'm so happy that Sara Joy is home!
