Halloween 2008.

She carved this herself.

Hobo Hannah

Princess Claire

Our 3 pumpkins for our 3 pumpkins.

Ready for the loot gathering.

Tired after an exhausting evening of hauling candy.
Claire really got the hang of the trick treating this yr. She joyfully ran to each door and anxiously awaited whatever treat they would place in her pumpkin. She would then run back to us and exclaim...."they gave me candy too!!" It was always such a sweet surprise. Hannah was a great big sister and acted as if it was HER first time to understand too. Then they got to indulge in trying to acheive a choclate coma. We really missed Kevin. We had fun trying to think what he might like to dress up as next yr.

Shelley, when did your girls grow up? I can't believe how grown up Hannah looks.... Claire is sweet as pie.. Any word Shelley on when you may be bringing your sweet Kevin home? It must break your heart that he's not with you.

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..

Favorite Poem

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
