About Me

Married twenty-five years to my wonderful husband and best friend. We have 3 "home-grown" kids and 1 hand-picked by God from Africa. Our life is blessed. We are a close knit family with strong Christian beliefs. Come along with us on our journey…you might have a great laugh or two.

Our bags are packed...look out Ethiopia here we come!

O.k., no one ever said that having children would be easy. It doesn't matter whether you are the biological parent or the adoptive one. You will have to "labor" to get your child into your world. This is so true for us at this very moment.

The biggest snow storm since 2007 is right upon us and about to dump 10 - 14 inches of snow...right now and into tomorrow. Very early tomorrow morning we are to be flying out in blizzard conditions (that is if they fly at all...). If we miss our connections through DC and NY, we will miss the only flight out of NY to Istanbul and then on to Ethiopia...and we will be stuck waiting for the next day's flight. Needless to say, we are incredibly stressed. So I've decided, this is our "labor"...and what a "birth story" to tell our son.

Hang on my little one, we are packed and coming...whether I have to help shovel the runway or not. I'm on my way!


  1. Praying for an easy labor! We are so happy for you guys!

  2. I just heard a meteorologist say it might be the storm of the century. Labor indeed!

    I'm looking forward to seeing a new picture at the top of this page with all six of you! :)
