Reflecting on the Highlights of 2014

It's New Year's Eve and I am taking a nice long bath, thinking about 2014 and dreaming for 2015.

God has truly blessed our family this past year.

In January 2014 I made the decision that I needed to start taking better care of myself.  I started out with a goal to loose a few pounds.  I got so much more than I expected, 12 pounds lost, gained energy, and healthier skin.  Now I am doing something I haven't done since college.  This spring I started working out and lifting weights.

We were blessed with the opportunity to vacation with 50 of the best families you will ever meet. We attended our first ever Reece's Rainbow Reunion. 

This summer with the help our church, Southland Christian Church, and Carpenter Bus we were able to purchase a 15 passenger wheelchair bus.

Twice this summer I was given the opportunity to share how adoption has blessed our family.


This fall we fell in love with two little boys across the ocean.  Both have some unknown medical issues and severe malnourishment.  Due to their fragile health we were able to expedite their adoption.  They will be coming home January 2015.  What a great start to our New Year!
