We have had so much fun with soccer this season and just have a few more weekends to go before we all take a much deserved & welcome break. (At least John & I welcome it!)

Little Mr. Homeless



When I said I wanted to adopt again, I should have been more specific. I meant children NOT cats! Driving home last night, I came apon what looked like a dead kitten lying in the middle of the road right on the yellow line, but it was this guy. He's smart & knew how to stop my car!
So, "Mr. Remains Nameless" although I think he should be named "Casanova" because he's such a snuggle-bug needs a family (NOT mine!)
He appears to be a "he", is thin & scrawny but seems otherwise healthy, and is VERY outgoing & friendly. He was literally reaching out to the camera as I tried to take these pictures!
I'd like him to go to an indoor home or to a place away from a busy road. He's a sweet little guy!
Please spread the word & help us find him a great home. Thanks! :)

Forever Family Day #3

Today is our third "Forever Family Day" - three years since the five of us became a family forever! We are partying today (tomorrow too!) and thanking God for all He has done for us! Believe me, adoption is HARD and there is NO WAY we could have done it without Him!
This picture was taken a few seconds after the four of us met for the very first time! I remember thinking how tiny Luke & Nathan were and how perfectly "right" they felt on my lap, my precious sons! Mark was so excited - I love his expression!
Two weeks later, I was able to introduce John to his two new little sons - such an amazing joy!
This picture was our very first family photo - taken on the day John and Luke & Nathan met each other.
These pictures are so very precious to me! They represent so many answered prayers in my life.
And so, I am (we are!) praying that God will enlarge our family AGAIN through adoption. We are preparing and looking forward to falling in love with more precious little lives!

A Sunday Afternoon Hike

One our favorite family activities is a simple walk in the woods.
Little Brother pokes Bog Brother with stick
Big Brother has plans to poke him back. (When camera isn't on him!)
Juneau keeps an eye on everyone.
