Remembering....

I will post our Memorial Day pictures...a day to remember those who have gone before us, to fight for our freedoms, and have thankful hearts for those who gave their lives for our country. We walked in our town's parade in honor of my cousin, Jim, who was killed in Iraq 18 months ago.

I haven't had the heart to post since the tragic accident of little Maria Chapman, daughter of Christian singer, Steven Curtis Chapman. Many in the adoption community have been grieving deeping for this family who has championed the cause of so many orphaned children. Our family was a recipient of a generous grant from Shaohannah's Hope when we adopted Jake, and we encourage you to consider making a donation to them in honor of Maria. ( www.shaohannahshope.org )

For those of you who are grieving with the family and would like to see a recap of Maria's memorial service, you can do so here

Here are some pictures of the kids at the parade--and later at my parents' house.
