One is adorable.  But I can also have TWO (and leave them in for longer than five minutes!). "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." ~~ Phil 4:8 Yes, I will. Thinking about all things lovely this … [Read more...]



Four and a half years later. I give you... ...THE HAILEE PONYTAIL! For the first time since coming home, little Miss is NOT pulling her hair out! We have longer,  oh-so-pretty hair. She thinks she's pretty smart. And so do we. We rejoice over the big miracles. But the littler things make us giddy too. Neck chub an added bonus. He truly does make all things … [Read more...]

a new date and questions


I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  We loved the past few days of warmer weather.  Yesterday we were in the 60's and by Wednesday the high will be 16.  Yikes! I thought I would give you all an update about where things are for our newest adoption as well as answer some questions I have received recently. It's been such an incredible journey so far.  I am in awe of my God!  I must admit … [Read more...]
