We are adopting two adorable girls who have a little something extra, Down Syndrome!
We are excited to add them to our family.
We will use this blog to update family and friends on our adoption progress and fundraising efforts.
Just joining us? Click on the 2011 posts in the archive to find out why we are adopting the girls.

Question 16: After the girls come home are you done adopting? Will your family be complete?

Ha, ha!  This question cracks me up only because I have lost all creditability when it comes "being done".  I honestly believed that I was done at three kids, then at five, then six, and so on.  I did not "plan" any of this.  I have, announced several times over the years, "We are done!  This is our last child!  I mean it this time!"  only to have God laugh and ask us to bring home another.  So why does everyone still ask me this question?  Don't they realize I don't have a clue ;)?

What I can say is that I don't for a second regret any of our children.  I cannot imagine my life without each and every one of them.  Every one of my children make my life and my family so much better, funner and more loving.  So even though several times over the years I have said "No more!"  I have always been grateful after each adoption that we said yes when the Lord called.  That does not mean that I am always thrilled when He calls ;).  Sometimes it takes a lot of courage and faith to say yes.  But then that sweet child enters your family and you realize what a massive blessing they are and you feel so grateful that the Lord chose you to be their mother.

So when the girls get home are we done?  Yes.  For how long?  I am not sure.


  1. How about Baby Nicky the child of the month on RR. He would be a great addition to the family. We are fundraising for him.

  2. Ha, ha!! Let us get these girls home first ;).
