May 1- Gotcha' Day


One year ago we arrived in Uganda and held Mical and Moses for the first time. To say that it has been quite a year in our lives is such an understatement. We are thankful for all the ways the Lord has knit us together as a family of seven. I feel reflective at this one year mark.

I also miss Uganda. I really miss it. While there, we were missing Lyric, Gavin and Cole....and toilet paper...and maybe a few other things. ;-) So, if we were to return, I'd just need to pack ALL the kids....and tp.

We are regularly asked how the kids are doing and how everyone has adjusted. I guess I feel like we've adjusted much like any family who gave birth to twins on any given year. There are added challenges when kids are older, but then I guess there are added challenges with newborn twins too, right?

We are growing. We are all growing. God's not done with us yet.

The laundry pile also grew...and the grocery bill ... ;-)


I had to include a tummy pic.
For those who have followed
Mical in prayer through this past year and three surgeries,
thank you so very much!
What a HAPPY tummy!

This handsome young man has been diagnosed with a
serious condition that should pass by his next birthday.
His family has diagnosed him as having "age TWO syndrome."
It can be terrible, but it's pretty awesome most of the time!
What a character!


  1. Look at that Tum-tum! YAY, what a huge testimony to Our Lord! Congratulations on ONE YEAR! Woohoo!

  2. YEAH. Hard to believe it has been a year already...but with a young man in our house almost looking me in the eye...yep time is passing. Have a great day!

  3. What a miracle God is working in your family. So excited to see how God has knit you together.
