His Mercy

A Thought

In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Twelve Years with Erika

Can you believe it has been 12 years since we brought Erika home?  I can't!  That little nearly 8 year old girl who was so tiny, so brave, so ready to have a family, has turned into a lovely, beautiful young woman.  She has blossomed soooo much!

She has continued to bring us joy and is working hard at life.  She still loves photography, is attending college as a psychology major, drives,  and is as witty as ever.

Here are a few pictures from our early adoption days:
The earliest photo we have of these two.
