camp pics

Abe loved the pool!
Spending time with one of Abe's prayer warriors- Bec.  What a treat. :)

paint ball- what the boys were doing when we got our referral
Zo-Zo, Caden (much happier than he looks), Cruz-man and Happy Abe

Seriously, this is the face he would make ANY time the camera came out!  I love the joy this kid has for life.  It sure teaches us on a daily basis not to sweat the small stuff.

Hi...I am a blog stalker of yours. I got your blog from a mutual friend at PBC who told us about your family (her name is escaping me right now but she works in the kid mix). We are also in the process of adopting a baby boy from Ethiopia. Just waiting on our I171H. Hopeful it will be here soon, but trusting God's perfect timing. Anyway, I would love to stay in touch and pick your brain about what to expect. my blog is and my email address is My husband also has an adoption blog, but we need to add pictures, and lots more info. :)
