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!

Meeting the Great Grands

We took a road trip during the week of spring break. We drove all the way to the Gulf Shores, Alabama and back, with many exciting stops in-between. The main objective of the trip was for the children to meetf their great grandparents and we want to keep some keepsake pictures here. It was great to meet Kim's grandpa, Puppa and James' grandparents too! It had been several years since we'd seen our grandparents, so you can bet we enjoyed it as much as the kids.

This is us with Kim's Puppa and Mary in Asheville.  We met them for church and then enjoyed a spectacular Brunch at their community dining room.  It was good to see Puppa, reconnect and hug his sweet neck. 

James' grandparents live in South Alabama, and they were our southermost stop on our road trip.  The kids loved playing with their dog, building forts on the sandy white beach, and visiting cousins at the Gulf Coast Zoo (employees, not residents!).  They also met their little cousins.  It was great to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa down south!

 We'll work on getting more trip-photos up for our friends and family to see soon.

That's wonderful! What a great chance for all of you to visit with long lost relatives. Taking a roadtrip that ambitious with four kids is a big job! Kudos!
