5 months ago today...

Me and Dad officially had the privilege to begin the process to bring Julia to the United States to a family that anxiously awaited our return.

Don't they look just radiant? :D)

And now, 5 months after knowing the
love and care of a family......

The Little Orphan we met in November of 2010...
Is one cute, happy little love muffin :)

Who ponders the deep thoughts in life

And forms opinions about what she likes VERY quickly

and takes little baby steps towards being one very mobile toddler every day.

And on top of all that....
She's planning to be a rock star :D

Happy 5 month-a-versary Julia! You are a HUGE blessing in our lives, and we are so happy to have you here. We know God has great things in store for you, so keep on shining like you do! :)

Answering the Call (more awesome Caleb videography)

Dear Friends - when last you saw the fine photography and videography of our very own Caleb Joseph, he was documenting our journey home with Julia. In the latest installment he documents the opportunity he had last weekend to witness nine men answering a call every bit as important as our passion for adoption. The call to serve others in consecrated, religious life.

Congratulations to all the new priests. And to you Caleb - we are so proud of you!

Introducing the Lococomotive

Our new 12 passenger van.

First of all, kudos to Dad, who literally jumped through all the hoops to find a van that could fit his large family. After much hard work and time and energy! We now have a beautiful van to fit all of us!

                                                          Don't we all look happy? :)
