 And Lovin every minuite of it!!! Seriously, I'm not really sure what my life would be like without the 9 kids that God has blessed us with so far. Never a dull moment. Days filled with joy, frustration, laughter, irritation, love and impatience:) Every day I drop off, pick up, deliver, clean, change, wipe, instruct, correct, laugh at with the little people that live in our house. The past weeks have been filled with the normal school activities, baseball, soccer, dance, gymnastics, bible studies, PT, OT,  & speech... Somewhere instating the ONE activity per kid rule seemed logical, but unless I were to morph into TWO people at some point that will become impossible. Ha! I absolute hate missing ANYTHING!!! But I have resolved to the fact that with 5 of the 9 doing some kind of activity, I will go in one direction and the hubs will go the other and at some point we WILL see each other again:) JK... The good news is summer is around the corner & I am one of those weird moms that loves my kids home in the summer & wishes it could last longer, but i realize they DO need an education:) lol

God continues to bless us abundantly and we remain overwhelmed by his love for us! 
Our two newest family members:)

We were not only blessed with a new dependable van, but with a new friendship with the Patterson family. Can't wait to get our 20 kids together!! LOL

Tobias Sheppard Harper
Tobias means the Lord is good. Toby will be training to be a service dog for Charlie & Levi. Our prayer is that he will love the boys and assist in minimizing wandering and keeping the boys out of trouble ;) He is already learning to sit, lay & stay along with walking with boys to and from the bus. He's a little clueless at 8 weeks old but Oh so cute!!

And of course some quick pics from the last few weeks:)

The verse I have prayed over my children the past 2 months. Love, Love, Love it!

"For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way." ~Col 1:9-12

This family has been the hands and feet of Jesus to SO many adopting families, helped raised thousands of dollars in record time to help rescue God's children, and blessed thousands of people with their heart for the orphan. Now it's our turn to bless them as they step out in faith to bring home there daughter that is 14yrs old & weighs 14lbs!!!! A child that has infinite value, that was created in the image of our heavenly father, and deserves to suffer no more & be loved beyond her wildest dreams!!!!

to meet this sweet family and watch as God sends them to bring his beloved child home!!!
Your heart WILL. BE. TOUCHED!!!!!!
