Our oldest has taught me how to be a mother. She is beautiful both inside and out. She has taken well to having TWO small siblings added to her life within 3 yrs. She was our only baby for 10 yrs. and moved right into sibling mode well. She is smart, funny, and loves God. She is such a good friend and loves to help serve at church. We can't believe she will be starting high school next year. Where did our baby go??

We enjoyed a quiet New Year celebration at home. We did alot of traditions this year. We all got haircuts and we swept the house. We have our oranges and lanterns at the ready. We have bought new clothes and REALLY feasted. The little ones went without naps on Sat so we had a really quiet evening as they went to bed by 7:30. I may have to re-think napping. I sure love that bedtime.
I will begin a new job shortly. It will be part time but will still require the little ones to go to the sitter. They love her and I know the time with the 2 others that are in the home is good for them.
We are planning another travel group reunion at Disneyworld this yr. We can hardly wait. Claire's feet won't touch the ground and I think Kevin will really enjoy it by the time we go (oct). He still is a little skittish around large animals that want to shake your hand.

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..
