Kyalynn...



My sweet girl....

It's been awhile since I've updated on Kyalynn. She is doing FABULOUS! She is such a hard worker and asks to do the dishwasher several times a day. She also is the first one to offer to help carry groceries in, or set the table, or get Samuel's things for me. Such a sweet blessing!!
We are hoping to sign her up for Equestrian Therapy come Summer and had to have her physical today. Her height isn't even on the charts she's such a teeny, tiny thing. LOL! I love seeing Kyalynn out of her element (meaning not the normal routine) because she just shines. She spoke very clearly and distinctly to the nurses and the doctor. However, that paper gown they made her wear did not last long. LOL! She ripped that baby off and was happy to sit naked as a jay bird.  Good thing the doctor was a woman. :)

Kyalynn is communicating better each month and can express her needs and wants so much better now than even 2 months ago. She is doing well in school and follows along well but isn't as quick to answer questions as Connor and so sometimes gets frustrated when he keeps throwing out the answers that she very well knows.  She thrives in her routine and we try very hard to keep things smooth for her but I will admit to throwing a wrench in things sometimes just because that's how the real world is and I want her to be ready for it someday.

Often times you can find her singing away as she goes about her day, happy, content and full of life. She spends countless hours with our animals and somewhere in the future she just might be a veterinarian or an entomologist. Only God knows what He has planned for this bright ray of sunshine but boy, oh boy, are we so very thankful He chose us to be her parents!

She is absolutely adorable! How old is she? We did equestrian therapy with one of our children and it was such a great experience! I hope it works out for her, especially since she's such an animal lover!

Love,
Denise

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…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

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 every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day 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…
