A Quarter of a Year!

I cannot believe Tred is 3 months old! He is growing and will soon experience his first summer at kamp. We are aware everyday how blessed we are to have him as our son.

Pay it forward...

I am not good at this kind of stuff. But, I would not have Tred if it were not for the blessing and support of others. So, upon hearing about this family I feel I have to do all I can. When we signed with Abba Adoption, there was a family that had previously signed on with them. We met the Hutslers at the conference we attended last fall. They had adopted a little girl 3 years ago and really wanted her to have a sibling. Crossing paths with Eric & Leslie was no mistake. We introduced them to Abba and they signed on soon after. They have had a hard time coming up with the funds to bring a baby home. I talked to the agency this morning and asked about them. They are financially at a stand still. This is sad because they just had to say no to a birthmom due in 2 weeks. The agencybelieves this situation is a perfect match, but the family cannot cover the cost for the remaining balance. I am just putting this out there for anyone that may feel led to give or at the very least lift them up in prayer. They are $4,500 short. This seems like a HUGE amout, but a small hurdle for our God. So, please join with us and pray this baby into a loving home. If you want more information check out the website below.

I am reminded today of God's provision and how He used so many of you to help bring our son home. These two words seem to fall short of how truly grateful we are, but...thank you. We cannot imagine our home without Tred!

Kids are so funny...

Hadley takes violin with one of her best buddies, Carson.  Last week at her lesson I brought Tred.  After the lesson Carson and her big bro, Kade, were wanting to check Tred out.  He was laying on the floor checking them out as well.  Hads came over as if she were showing him off...she is a proud big sis.  Kade said, "He is so cute."  And, dear Carson followed up as a matter of fact with "He's so bu-rown (brown:)."  We all laughed and packed up our violins. 

On the way home Hadley asked me "Is Tred really brown, Mom?"  I said "Yes, isn't he handsome? " She agreed and was left to ponder this new bit of information.  

I love that she never even realized he looked different.  I hope she always sees that way.  My kids are not perfect, but I want to be like Hadley and see people the way she does.

ps...this was for you Jamie
