More pictures

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.



Rare sighting of mom and dad.



Happy New Year to all.  Make this a time to start fresh and live life to the fullest.  Life is such a precious gift, we mustn't waste it on time wasting things like anger, jealousy, and pride.

YAY! Love the CNY pics of the WHOLE family!





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
