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.

Look Mom - no swimming vest!

Tonight at our swim...Beti asked to try swimming without her swimming vest.  Within 5 minutes, she was swimming ...  Really swimming!  Now she uses a mask with a nose covering most of the time, but the girl was really going to town!  She was so pleased with herself.  She was jumping into the pool from the deck and making it all of the way across the pool!  Here are some pics of her adventure!  Not to be outdone, Nardos made sure to make her own splash.  She had Alex throwing her into the air for a pint-sized cannon ball.  She has also made great strides in that she will put her face into the water and open her eyes!  She has even figured out how to hold her breath so that she doesn't come up sputtering!  Did I mention that they have only been swimming for two and a half weeks?
I know you can't hear it, but she is squealing the whole time!!!!
Jumpin in!
So happy to swim without a vest!
I'm not tired, Momma!
So Tired!
You will notice - in the blur - that Marshall's tongue is out!
What? Time to go?????
