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.

We (the kids and I) are gearing up to intentionally travel east to the hot and humid state of Missouri to visit family and friends. When I was a kid, our family headed west about this time each summer in search of the great Rocky Mountains, cooler weather and pine trees. Occasionally, we would spot a Colorado license plate heading east, and every time, I would say "you're going the wrong way! ". Now I find myself in the same situation, only this time, I'm in the Colorado car heading east. Now I know what those crazy people were willing to go east for: family, relationships, time by the pool, late nights with Aunt, Uncle, cousins and Grandpa.

Can't wait to hit the road and go east!
