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.

Use your imagination...

Ok - here is a test of your imagination skills... I don't have pictures and even if I did, I'm not sure it would do the scene justice.  Marshall, playing the electric drum set, Beti playing this beat-box kind of toy that puts out keyboard music and a beat, Levi in a cowboy hat,  and Nardos in her purple princess dress with her red braided "fake hair on a headband".  Now put the picture in motion:  dancing, grooving, beating the living day-lights out of the musical instruments and loads of laughing.  Can't even begin to describe the joy in my heart at the joint effort and the happiness that I have for adding that well used family/kids room in the basement!  I just heard Levi say, "Let me show you how it's done!"

Oh the joys of motherhood!
