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!

30 November 2009

It's a special day because it's James' birthday and because we all went to see Iguacu Falls, a majestic sight for sure!  Our dear children protested the trip to the falls because they preferred to stay in the pool, but we insisted that we did not take a 10 hour sleepless overnight bus ride just to swim in a hotel pool.  In the end, everyone was glad to have experienced the falls.  We even took a boat ride at the base of the falls and got just as wet as we would have in the pool.

If is funny - but from this vantage point, you two are looking more like parents everyday. The pictures of the waterfalls you both seemed more relaxed. You are doing just great! Happy Birthday Luana and Happy Birthday James.

Also - I use to watch Xuxu (in Atlanta I think) and wonder if it had such a big appeal and the audience portrayed. It seems so.
