This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

Carnaval in Brazil


This week was Carnaval in Brazil and all around the world.  I don't want to get into the religious, theological or moral questions that are always raised when a Christian talks about the event.  I just want to ask the Lord to hasten the day of our Brazilian Celebration, for we know that being united with our children will be as joyful an occasion as Carnaval is to so many Brazilians.  The colors, the smiles, the zeal.  I already feel the joy of meeting our children, and I can hardly wait to experience it fully.  

Courts are closed in Brazil for Carnaval, so we're hoping for news shortly after.

I wore that same outfit to work today. People seemed to really like it.

I wonder if Carnival in Brazil is related to Mardi Gras, which was Tuesday? I've heard that Mardi Gras didn't start in New Orleans originally, or in Louisiana at all for that matter.

The costume in that picture is awesome!
