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!

Present for Brayan

We've spent a considerable amount of time planning special, meaningful gifts for each of our children.  We wanted to be sure that we gave them something during our first days together that would be a tangible reminder of who we are as a family.  We are hoping this brave but super-cuddly lion stays with Brayan for years to come, and reminds him as he hugs its fuzzy little neck that it's OK to feel scared or lonely sometimes... and that Mom and Dad will always be there to comfort him and give him the courage he needs to keep on growing--no matter what.  

Here's the sweet lion posing with some USCIS approval envelopes!
