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.

Finally! Nardos' hair is long enough for two pony tails

Ok - so we don't call them piggy tails because as they were learning English,  "piggy" tails weren't as desirable as "pony" tails.  Nardos' hair was rather short as you can see in this comparison.  Anyway, the other night as we were combing her hair after a shower, I noticed how long it was getting and made the comment that we MIGHT be able to get it into two pony tails.  Needless-to-say, the next morning I spent a chunk of time combing and combing again.  If you have ever rolled out bread dough - it's a little like that.  As soon as I combed it, it would crawl back to curly!  Anyway, enjoy the pictures of our little Minnie Mouse!
