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.

5 kids + 6 days of rain = cabin fever
Six days of rain results in cabin fever!!! We packed up and headed downtown KC to Hallmark's Kaleidoscope. We made crafts and had fun then headed over to Crown Center to have a snack at Fritz's where a train brings you your order. We were joined by my sister, her kids, an extra friend, my sister-in-law and her two boys. It was a little crazy, but fun!
