A word or two about the Dad in this home.

I am not a fan of hugely long posts, but to be able to describe the father in this home it will have to be long.

He is truly the most giving man around. He loves us all without conditions or rules. He loves us openly and honestly. He never gives up on us and always supports us in whatever craziness comes our way. He (really almost) never complains about the craziness but always cleans up after it. He was TRULY sent from the heavenly father to us because God knew how much we would need him.

It seems funny to think of him with a quiet and sedate family. What messes would he have to clean up? How would he function without the noise and chaos? Would he enjoy quiet evenings and no screaming children? Heck, no!!! He knows this is excatly where he belongs, and there would be horrible sadness in the world if he weren't a part of it.

We don't tell him enough that he is the glue that bonds us together. Without him we would be lost souls...and wouldn't have the HUGE music appreciation that we ALL have.

We love you to the moon and back. We love you with all the cells in our bodies. We love you until there isn't any love left. Thank you for being with us and protecting us from the horrible world.

Hannah and Claire

That is so sweet. I'm sure daddy realizes how much his munchkins love him. Great post.

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
