Ps.66 "Shout with joy to God...sing the glory of His name...make His praise glorious!...say to God, How awesome are your deeds!...Come and see what God has done on man's behalf. COME and LISTEN...let me tell you what HE HAS DONE FOR ME!...God has surely listened and heard my voice in prayer...Praise be to God who has not rejected my prayer or withheld His love from me!"
After a 5 year journey, we finally adopted our first child!Two years later God gave us our second child!

The day FINALLY CAME!!!
Our first magical memory making trip to DISNEY WORLD in Florida was a success!!
We stayed in a Finding Nemo Family Suite
Each night Ella would say, "I'm sleeping with Nemo!"
View from our window out to the pool. The swimming pool had music piped into it under the water. Cool!
Surprised them with new jammies on our first night.
