Hi everyone, I am glad that you found your way to our new blogsite. Our family is finally adjusted to adding a new member. Faith is doing great! She has not had any problems fitting into the family. She is such a joy to be around.
Well we have some exciting news to share. We are in the process of adopting a little boy from Ethiopia. His name will be Gabriel Lemi Maas. He is 16 months old and is reported to be healthy. We are very excited about this new addition. Unfortunately, we will not be able to post any pictures due to Ethiopian adoption regulations. We are currently working on our dossier(all those papers again!) to send to Ethiopia. We will of course keep you updated on the adoption progress.
We just celebrated Miranda's 6th birthday. We are also overjoyed to announce she was baptized on February 24th. Miranda had asked Jesus into her heart as Lord and Savior last year but needed some time to prepare for the baptism.
Faith is doing well and growing leaps and bounds. She will turn 2 next week, her first birthday with our family so we are very excited. She continues to have speech issues due to her cleft. Because of the type of cleft she had the entire repair will not be completed until between age 7-10. We are going to see an Oral Surgeon next week to see if there is anything we can do now which will help her progress in her speech.
Ethan is as active as always. He is excited about his brother. They will be sharing a room so we are trying to figure out arrangements for the room. He is ready to get outside and I am ready for some warm weather. Ethan is a daddy's boy! He loves the follow Darren around the house and help fix stuff.
It is getting late and I should get some sleep.
God Bless You
