Feliz Flans

I don't know about you, but I absolutely love FLAN!!
My friend Alexis makes the best flan on the planet - I promise!

Alexis & her beautiful family are in the process of adopting
an adorable 7 year old girl from China named Melody.

The Alvarez family is in the process of fundraising to help bring their daughter home.
One of the things that they are doing is making homemade FLAN.

So, if you live in the Southern California area and love flan,
would you please help them bring their little girl home by contacting Alexis
and ordering your flan(s) today?!?

The small size flan will serve 2-4 people and 
the large size will serve 4-8 people.

Home for 2 Months

It's hard to believe that we arrived home from China two months ago today with our sweet treasure!

Life has been quite busy since arriving back home. 
Our first weekend together as a family of 7 was lots of fun watching Kaden interact 
with his brothers and getting to know them. It was like he had been with us forever!!

(Jordan & Kaden)

Four days after arriving home, Camden & Jordan came down with really high fevers
and a week later, after not getting better, were diagnosed with pneumonia!

 (Camden & Kaden)

The boys got well just in time for us to head to Durango, Colorado 
for a much needed family vacation!
We had an amazing time in Durango and were really sad to have to leave and head home.
We'll hopefully post some photos soon from our trip.

(Hayden & Kaden)

Kaden is a very happy, loving little guy who has the cutest smile that just melts your heart!

 (Brendan & Kaden)

We are overwhelmed by God's goodness and how He has knit our family together!
