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!

ABC's of My Heart

Starting this week, you will begin to see posts of mine and linked to it will be posts for several other Facebook friends (some I know, some I just met) that are doing a challenge with me of blogging through the alphabet.  

I personally will be writing about random topics associated with the letter of the week.  Some of the other ladies will be blogging on specific topics of their choice, but all blogs will be related to the corresponding alphabet letter for that week.  

I've titled my series - The ABC's of My Heart, because it's just that... topics that are near and dear to my heart.  My passions. Things that I love.  We are kicking off the series this week, so by Friday you will see my "A" post and linked to it will be the post to the other ladies who are blogging with me.

Thanks Rebekka for inviting me and putting the challenge together.  It'll be a good way for me to put in words things that are near and dear to my heart as well as learn more about other friends - both old and new.

Anyone (other than the blog ladies who already know what my topic is) have any guesses as to what my "A" post will be???  Hint - It's my NUMBER ONE PASSION and I'm overjoyed that it's the first letter of the alphabet - making this week easy!!!

In Christ,
