LID Received!

We received notice today that we have our LID (log in date) - April 18th!!

We are getting closer and closer to bringing our precious son home!
Kaden we love you so much and can't wait for the day when we can hold you forever!


We would really love to travel by the end of June and be able to get to Kaden by my birthday,
but based on other timeframes that we have been following,
it looks like we will more than likely travel sometime between mid-July to end of August.

Please pray that we have speedy approvals for the rest of our process
and that we can travel to bring our son home really soon!

Happy Birthday Camden!

Happy Birthday to MEEEEEEE!

Another Birthday Boy!

Say hello to our 9-year old!!

Yes, it’s true. Our #3 son, Camden, just turned 9!

It happens every year, with every one of our boys, but it seems like only yesterday that we were bringing that little guy home from the hospital. Where did those years go? I think I had time to blink once, maybe twice. . . if I blink again, he’ll be driving off to college!

Each one of our boys is a precious and unique creation that we are so grateful to have as part of our family. So, what are some of Camden’s uniquenesses (if that’s a word)? The things that stand out are really facets of the same quality - he is passionate! What I mean by this is that he is one of those people who will take a stand and not be moved. He feels everything so intensely! There is no lukewarm in Camden!! 

Where this really shines is in his heart for God. He doesn’t just know the right answers, he BELIEVES them and STANDS upon them. He has understandings and insights that often amaze us, his parents. 

Camden will do great things for God in his life, and for this we are grateful.

So, to our passionate Camden with his burning heart for God, HAPPY BIRTHDAY "CANNIN"!!!!

We love you and are so proud of you!

Spring Frenzy

Stacy over at My Cup Overfloweth 
is hosting a wonderful opportunity to help adopting families 
raise funds to bring their precious treasures home!

We all love to give gifts!

by going to "Spring Frenzy" 
to find all kinds of gifts for your loved ones for 
Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Birthdays, Graduations, Weddings
and any other special event that is coming up!

Fundraising for an adoption is a lot of work, but also a ton of fun!

With every penny that we are able to save or are blessed with from friends and family,
we are one step closer to holding Kaden in our arms forever!

We have several fundraisers going on at the moment -
