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!

Some travel updates

We wish we'd found more time to update our friends and family about our whereabouts and our activities recently, but our days have been full and our energy short by the end of the day.  Here are some links to photos of our travels.  Hopefully these facebook links work for everyone who doesn't have facebook... we're having trouble uploading photos to Blogger.  (grr).

We had a nice jaunt to downtown Curitiba yesterday.  The old buildings and decorative sidewalks make it a charming place.  The 1st class bus system and bustling economy make it feel as comfortable as home.

The Praca de Espanha was a nice, off the tourist-beaten path, place to visit on a Saturday morning.  There was a lovely antique fair and a park where the kids played for a long while with our friend Lee and her son Joe.  Kim got a nice green necklace but whole-heartedly regrets not picking up the orange "Pedra de Sol" necklace as well.  Regrets it even more now that she's seen several (not as nice) pieces costing much more.  The fair doesn't open again until next Saturday and we'll be gone.  :(

We had a nice visit with Mae Hai (AKA Regina), who was "Mother" to our children for at least 2 years before we became a family.  This it he first they've seen her in over 2 years, and the first time we've had the chance to meet her.  It was an exciting and also emotional visit.  Good for the heart.
