18 years old!

Wow! Our premature, 1lb 14oz son has grown up. SO SO proud of this young man. He brings a smile to many faces.

Daniel passed!

Whoo hoo! SO excited for Daniel. He passed his driving test today. This is a great achievement for anyone but extra special for Daniel.

When the farm owner asked... read more

12 years ago…..

…… the week before Christmas, 2002, we received a call from Heidi, Daniel’s birthmom. That was the ‘real’ start of our adoption journey. Yes, we had filled out paperwork several months previously but until that call we were not truly on the road, just waiting by the edge. Do you realize you the courage it took Heidi to call us? I don’t know about you but cold calling... read more
