Sunday Snapshot: Siblings

We got "the look" many times when we announced that we were adding to our family through adoption. I think what made it an easier pill to swallow for many nay-sayers was our intention to adopt an older child, so you know, we weren't really adding any more years to having children in the home, we could still be child-free "on schedule", we would just have one to slide into the mix. People still thought us crazy, but at least we weren't starting all over.

Haha...God had other plans which totally surprised us & turned the heads of many. We were literally carrying around a 5-lb. preemie while we were moving our oldest into college. And life never felt so good. Every one of our children is a blessing to us & to each other.











Praying to receive good news this Wednesday that another child will be officially part of our family. Let the love, good times & memory-making continue........

Cute pics!

Our oldest and youngest bio. kids are 18 years apart (with 8 siblings in-between) so we did "sneak" the adopted ones in amongst the youngest bio.
