Look At That Smile...

This was from Connor's Gotcha Day Celebration. This outfit came with him from Korea 4 years ago! I was astonished it still fit for the most part. He was so excited to try it on and to watch his movie of when we met him at the airport. I know it sounds hard to believe but he still has many vivid memories of Korea. (He came home at 2 1/2 years old) He loved smelling his clothes he wore in Korea, his backpack that contained snacks prepared for the long flight to America and the memory those smells conjure up. He was transported back in time....back to Korea. I cried watching him remember, all the emotions that crossed his face. We, of course, told his story and how he came to be in our family. (He loves this story and can almost tell it word for word!) and when it was time for bed he said "I'm glad you and daddy said yes when God asked you to adopt a little boy." Me too Connor, me too. The journey hasn't been easy but oh how incomplete our lives would be without this little dynamo in it! He has been given the best gift know that Jesus loves him so much he brought him the whole way across the world and into our family so that he could learn about Him and know Him as his Savior!!!

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

I can't get over how much we look alike in this picture!   The smile....the eyes... Precious!

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 

She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us sometimes that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
