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.

Many of you know the dress delimna that we go through with Nardos on a daily basis. What can I say, she is a girly girl. In an effort to keep clothing costs to a minimum, I scouted around and landed on a pattern/idea of attaching a skirt to a t-shirt. Here are our first creations. We hit Wal-mart & picked up four shirts, then headed to Joann's fabrics to find material for skirts. It was fun! Here are a few pictures of the dresses.


  1. I found your great blog after I saw your comment on mine. LOVE the dress idea! Nice to find another KC family, and I look forward to reading about your precious kiddos!

  2. What a cute idea!! You are very creative. :)
