Building a Family...Arkansas Life

Arkansas LIfe

In the current issue of Arkansas Life Magazine, there is an article about the different ways people choose to build their family. Our family is featured in the adoption piece of the story :o) Click here to read the story...it begins on page 22. For those of you that know me in person, you know this is waaaay outside my comfort zone :o) I am so thankful that the lady who wrote the article GETS adoption. Not everyone does. The social worker we used for Sophie Le's adoption is also featured in the article with her BEAUTIFUL daughter from Vietnam.

OH!!! Did you guys watch 18 Kids and counting tonight? They visited D.C. and ate at an Ethiopian restaurant. Did you see the dancing?!? Oh man, I loooove Ethiopian dancing :o) Also, did you hear that the Duggars are expecting number 19? Wow.

Foster Care Update:
Baby G is having a pretty rough time. If you were at Wal-Mart this afternoon around 4:00, this will come at no surprise to you :o) It was quite an experience. Please keep her in your prayers. Also, her first court date in tomorrow.

Oh I am just getting caught up with your family. Read all the recent blogs and am so happy that things are going well. I just LOVE the article. It was beautifully written. We MUST catch up soon! It has been too long. Of course we have both been a little busy. :)

I love the article. The picture of you guys is just great. Please pray for our family as my husband isn't on the same page. I'm ready for more children. He is not.
