Today is Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to three very special people
in my life . . .

First, there is my husband. He is the love of my life. Our children and I are so blessed to have him in our lives. He is loving, funny, tender, protective, hard-working, and so much more. We love him a whole bunch of bunches!

My handsome and wonderful husband
I couldn't ask for a better father for our children.

Kevin and his oldest son Ted

Kevin and his middle son Philip
(Eli, his youngest son, is still in China!)

And then there are the two fathers who provided the role models for Kevin and showed him what it means to be a father.

Kevin's dad, who passed away several years ago, lives on in our hearts. He was a man of gentle spirit with a willingness to help in any situation who deeply loved his family. We love him and miss him so much each and every day.

My dad continues to be one of our heroes. Even though he struggles with major health difficulties all the time, he never gives up. He is one of the bravest, most fiercely protective, and funniest people we know who also deeply loves his family. We love him so.

Ted, Dad, Philip, and Dad's brother Uncle Al

I just found your blog off of your adoption website update. I want to say congaratulations on your newest son!

We have older children as well~ 2 boys in college adn a daughter in high school,as well as two daughters adopted from China. Our newest daughter was brought home last fall from PHF!(Unfortunately we were not able to make the reunion.)

We are praying about a 3rd adoption, perhaps a little boy this time, so your stories have been so encouraging to me.

My older daughter Emily has a blog~ if you would like to "meet" our family.

I look forward to following along on your journey to little Eli. Already he is such a beautiful witness to God's faithfulness.
