- From our family to yours
- Married twenty-three years to my wonderful husband and best friend. We have 3 "home-grown" kids, 1 hand-picked by God from Africa and 1 very hyper-active dog. Our life is blessed. We are a close knit family with strong Christian beliefs. And just recently we have bought ourselves a farm. Do we know what we are doing? Nope. Come along with us on our journey…you might have a great laugh or two.

Finally...home study approved!
Woo..hoo!!! Our home study has finally been approved! We are fit to be parents...funny, if you think about it that way. The whole purpose of the home study is to find out if you are fit to be parents (not to mention that we've got 11 years of parenting practice on our oldest, 9 years on our middle one and 4 years on our youngest). I guess I could have saved them all the trouble of all that paperwork, if the entire crew of people that looked over our case would have just come over to our house. Sure, you'll see a mess in the playroom, clean clothes that need to be folded or school books all over the house. But if you listen real close you'll also hear this...down-right hearty laughter coming from the kids, music playing somewhere in the house and you'll feel all the love right straight through to your bones. I wonder if that could be translated in the Ethiopian language.
