Our Family

We have been married almost 20 years. Over the years we have grown into the very best of friends. The plans we dreamed for our lives were so very boring compared to what God has unfolded. We love to laugh, hang out with our kids and do most anything outside. The beach is our favorite outdoor place! Our favorite names are Dad and Mom.

This is our oldest son, Mac. When he was born our lives were forever changed. It was then we began to learn how much love we had to share. He is 15 years old and is the world’s most loyal San Diego Charger fan.

Our second son is 13 years old. He is very comical and loves to entertain us all. He is loving and extremely good at negotiating his opinions. His willingness to accept others just as they are is an example to us all. His name is Jacob.

Here is our angel, Emma Grace! She is one of the sweetest and most loving children. She loves anything girly! She is a great big sister and is already passionate about adoption. She is 11 years old.  Her big heart for others is amazing.

This little treasure came home in 2011. Our Hannah Li is such a kind- hearted and loving child. She puts others first and loves with her entire heart. She does not like to try new experiences and is somewhat shy to those outside our family. She is four years old.

Here is our Jiangxi Princess. She came home in January of 2010. She is four years old. We waited for her arrival for over four years. She is independant, full of energy and quick to learn anything. God’s calling to adoption has been life changing for our family. We are so thankful for this girl.

Here is our little puppy Mocha! She weighs about five pounds. She can run faster than imaginable and keeps us on our toes. She’s a faithful companion that all our children adore.

I am so happy to have seen your blog listed on the New Day blog. I was one of Melody’s sponsors since just before her first birthday. I have not yet had time to read the whole blog but I have seen the love and happiness in the photos.

Not to sound stalkerish but I did notice that you flew into Charlotte, so I am assuming you are in NC. I live in Goldsboro and have family in Mecklenburg Co.

I look forward to reading yours and Melody’s stories. Thank you and God Bless.

Hi – we were one of Melody’s sponsors and were so happy to hear when she was matched with her family. My daughters have been asking all the time where Melody’s new family is and when can we meet her. Was happy to just find out you have a blog and looking forward to reading and seeing Melody bloom. Hope to someday meet your family. Blessings, Wendy
