Colorado Trip...Summer 2011

It has been 3 weeks since we traveled Grizwald style to Colorado in our 15 passenger van with 9 kids in tow. But since I also use this as a journal of our lives that our kids WILL enjoy one day, I thought I would share some of our fun times:) The slideshow is full of I-phone pictures since my camera quit working first day of trip:(

He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created. ~James 1:18

The Reality IS...

...this is the condition Charlie could have been if he had been tranferred on his 6th Birthday & sentenced the mental institution. Our loving little 7year old who weighs 34 pounds could have just withered away, hidden from the world.
Liliana 11years old & TEN pounds!!!!

I can't express to you how heavy my heart is....

Please visit Adeye's blog & click on the CHIP IN button so that this ONE can be rescued!

Liliana and millions of other children deserve to have LIFE!
ONE orphan at a time....
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.  ~Mother Teresa

Happy 7th Birthday Charlie!!!

On August 16th, 2010, 2 days before you were to be transfered to an adult mental institution, we walked into an orphanage in Kyiv,Ukraine, where we were lead outside to meet our soon to be son for the first time. That was the day we hugged you for the first time;)
The TIGHTEST hug I have every received!
Sept 15th, 2010 YOU became our son:)
TODAY is your 7th Birthday & we are so blessed that God placed you in our Family
And we look forward to celebrating many, many more:)

Happy 9th Birthday Jonathan!!!

9 years ago today our FIRST son was born into this world. Even after 2 ultrasounds both saying that our 4th baby would be a boy, I wouldn't believe it until he was here. So after waking up with my waterbreaking and a strong contraction at 4:45am, driving 100mph on the interstate thinking I was gonna have you in the car, & walking into the hospital and delivering you 20 minutes later at 6:45am, I was ecstatic to see "A Baby B-O-Y!" Boy were there a lot of tears over this sweet little bundle of boy:) From that day on you have been a joy. You are growing into such a mighty little man of God, and we are so proud of you. Thank you for being such a good big brother, thank you for loving your sisters in such a sweet way & thank you for smiling that silly smile & saying "whatsup?" to me every morning.  You are an amazing young man & we are SO proud that God made you part of our family. Dude! You Rock! Oh, and daddy & I look forward to sitting in the stands(for free) and watching you pitch in Ranger Stadium one day;)

Happy 9th Birthday JoJo!!!

We LOVE you!
~Daddy,Mommy,Lacey, Sydnie, Baylie, Tate, Charlie, Emmy, Levi & Kenlie
