Catch up

We went to the North Pole and saw Santa.  Kevin was a little leary, but with Dad close by he agreed to talk to the man in red. Claire was all over this....she would have sat on his lap for an hour if he would've let her. Funny, when children see this man, requests come out of their mouths that have never been heard before! What is up with that?? They also had his sleigh there if you wanted pics.  They thought this was out of the world too. They were beyond excited to think it was really his sleigh.

Claire is very excited for her upcoming birthday.  She believes that 7 is so much more grown up than six. She is also excited that Jesus has the same birthday month as her.  She is so sweet about reminding us what the season is really about. Hannah continues to be a wonderful teen, she is still a TEEN, but trys to stay on the good side.  I know it is hard these days, but she remains strong in her convictions and commitment to God.

We hope you all have the best of the CHRISTmas season.

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
