I am never in photos....and finally, this vacation, I ended up in some. I have way too many photos from our vacation to post this way. So, I wanted to post some photos of me with my family. I will post more vacation photos when I get a chance to put them into a slideshow.
Emma zonked out on our long bike ride in Marquette.

Help Bring a Child Home

My friend, Terri, has a good friend who has an immediate need to raise money to bring home their daughter from Taiwan. Please consider donating to their adoption fund or check out Terri's raffle on her blog. All raffle money will be donated to the Johnson family's adoption. Also, please keep this family in your prayers.

Moving Along...

Here is the latest update on our Ethiopia adoption...straight from our agency:

Just an update for you. Your dossier has been sent from our office to Washington D.C. yesterday, August 4, 2009. There it will be authenticated and then sent to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Once in Addis, the documents will need to be authenticated then translated into Amharic and then authenticated again before it reaches our office in Ethiopia. Please allow 2-3 weeks for this process. When your dossier is received in our office in Ethiopia, you will then be “officially waiting”. If you have any further questions feel free to contact us at any time. We hope you have a wonderful week!


Great news! We are praying for the health and safety of our daughter and her caretakers. We can't wait to get a referral with photos, soon, to see God's perfect match for us! Please continue to pray for our daughter.
