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.

New (to us) Camper and Branson!

We took our maiden voyage this past weekend.  A special thanks to Jim Chapman for helping us get the camper "unwinterized" so that we would be ready.  Another special thanks to God for sending Tom and Kristen Harris (a teacher from Fort Osage) to the same campground and just across the street from us!  Thanks Tom for guiding Bob through the labyrinth of hoses, nozzles, fresh, grey and black water (if you don't know the last three....be glad!).  We had a grand time figuring out all the special features of our home away from home and are already looking forward to the next opportunity to get out of town!  Enjoy the photos.
