Once upon a time....

Flash back to 1999, we were a family of four. Happy in our new roomy house and comfortable in our ways. A few years later, the Lord blessed us with an additional little package, little boy #3. Now we were a family of five and sure that would be the end. As time moved on, so did we. The Lord used the time that passed to open our eyes to His will. Several years ago, Bob and I individually heard the call to adoption. It has been a long "pregnancy", but during this incubation time, the Lord has brought us to where He wants us to be. Spring 2010, we traveled to Ethiopia where two little angels were waiting for the Lord's timing - to become our children. Now we are home and can't imagine life any differently! What a blessing to be in His will.

Galatians 4:5 says "God sent Christ to buy freedom for us, who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as his very own children." We are just following his model. A Perfect picture of salvation.

Coming along slowly!

Well - despite rain and more rain, we are finally on the road to the "dry" state of building. A few weekends ago, Bob and I went down to the basement to get some wrapping paper and found Niagara Falls coming in the back wall of our existing house. It was quite distressing. Bob ran to Wal-mart at midnight to buy a very large tarp which we spent three additional hours attaching to the house and out over the new portion. As it turns out, when you cut the siding to attach the new floor, it really lets the water in! Since this picture, we now have doors and windows in the openings and rafters on the top! We are told that in about a day and a half, we will have a water tight roof. We obviously have some work to do to bring the old and new together and it will get a little messy, but we are hopeful that we will be all moved in and settled by the end of July. Yes, we are naive and ambitious. Check back for updates!
