Finally adding some pictures

I am still learning how to put this blog together.....what you see here is all self-taught so bear with me. I am working now on adding some pictures of my family. We are moving right along on everything....this is the slow, down time...the waiting is the hardest part. I just feel like I need to be doing something!! :) Anyway, I have decided to do a little more work on my blog. I want you all to get to know me, and I want to get to know you! There are a few family pics here: my husband, Jeff, Miranda who will be attending community college in the fall, Seth who will be starting 6th grade, Cassie (adopted from Kazakhstan in 2003) who will be in the 5th grade, and Makenzi who will be our big first grader! Jeff's two oldest children, Britnee and Zac are young adults living on their own and pursuing their careers. Jeff and I got married in January 2010 so we blended together quite a large crew. The new additions to our family will have lots of big brothers and sisters!
Feel free to email me anytime...I love to meet new people and make new friends.

Homestudy is Underway

We have had our first interview for our homestudy and we have a first home visit next week. We just returned from our vacation in Florida so I am ready now to hit the paperwork hard. I have all summer off so I plan to get some fundraising started also. Please pray for us...this is such leap of faith. We know that Lina needs to have her cleft palate corrected so we worry that with each passing day she loses the chance of progress with speech. I will get our website link out as soon as possible for our FSP. We need your help to make this all happen.
