Anna, Jailynn, and Jordyn

We are so proud of Anna in all that she does. She is a very busy girl taking college credits in high school, advanced classes, drill team, marching band, and robotics. She is a wonderful big sister and role model for her younger sisters. She will be very much missed when she takes her next step in life: college. I am not sure how I will hold up because I am already starting to grieve over the fact she will be leaving the nest.

Celebrating Jordyn"s 12th Birthday and four years together.

Sweet Jordyn

Jordyn loves school and she is a straight A student.

Jordyn requested to celebrate her 12th birthday with a shopping trip with Mom. Awe, melt my heart.

So Blessed to know you, Jordyn, as my daughter!

In aw of my beautiful daughter. Jordyn is beautiful inside and out.

Jailynn won our hearts too!

Jordyn loves her family, her sisters Amanda and Anna.

Jordyn loves her big sister Anna.

Jordyn has brought so much love and joy to our family. She is a beautiful young lady and the love of Jesus shines through her. She is such a wonderful daughter. We are blessed and honored to know her and be her family. We adopted Jordyn four years ago and because of her love for her friends she left behind we adopted Jailynn in 2009. Soon, we will have Jaidyn home to complete our family. Jordyn has blossomed into a beautiful, sweet, caring young lady. She has touched my heart and I am blessed to be her mother.Adopting an older child can be intimidating and has challenges, but the rewards outweigh all of it. I cannot imagine my life without sweet Jordyn. I thank God for the opportunity to know her and the privilege to be her mother.

Hi! I am glad you are visiting my blog! Please sign my guestbook or leave me a comment. It will mean so much to me, Jordyn and Jailynn!

The rest of our family

In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!

God Is Awesome!



I am Praising God tonight because He has Heard my cries and answered my prayers. We have recieved a generation donation from a wonderful family toward our fund raising efforts. We have also recieved generous donations from wonderful people through this website and through Jailynn's Prayer. So far, the total fundraising has reached a total of $4000!!!!!!!! Thank you! Thank You! Thank you to everyone for helping us to bring Jailynn home! We are hoping to travel sometime this month and still need to raise money. I know that God is providing for our family through the unselfish and generous giving from special and wonderful people like you!

We have our LOA!!
