We designed this site in order to keep in touch with friends and family who are far away and in order to communicate with other adoptive families from around the world.

When we first started researching this wonderful way to become a family we read everything we could get our hands on. Even though there are a lot of great books out there, nothing was as informative or touching as the blogs we found by adoptees, biological parents, and adoptive families. So we are writing this blog now in hopes of returning the favor. We hope that if you are dear to us you will enjoy keeping up with our adventures. If you are someone out there involved in a part of the adoption triad we hope you will find information and comfort here and provide us with some of your own!

If you would like to get in touch with us we can be reached at:
Feel free to stop by anytime. We're happy to share our family story.

Take care,
Brian and Rosemary

Finally, my replacement USB cord has arrived! So here is a sampling of our trip to Thailand. Enjoy!!

Our House Mother and my dear friend, Jutiporn, with her 18 mon. old little boy.

Meena, one of our highschoolers, with her older sister, one of our alumni, who is now married and the mother of this adorable kiddo who just charmed us all and spent the week being spoiled rotten by everyone!
Travis with his sponsor daughter.
I double dog dared Travis to eat the Tuna-Corn fried pie at the Bangkok McDonalds!  HAHA!!
Our elementary girls performing the cutest nativity scene I've ever watched!
The Christmas Parade begins.
Travis is a fierce competitor in the ping pong tournaments.  I am not asked to play.  ;-)
Our two sponsor daughters.  Teeda, has been with me since I was a "single mom" and she is a very special part of my life.  After we got married, Brian and I felt we could do more and received the honor of sponsoring little Patcharee!

I am speechless as I see these pictures. I enjoyed reading all your posts but the pictures really bring it to reality. It hits home that there are so many kids who need people. Whether we volunteer, sponsor, adopt or make it a life's work. They are all so beautiful. Makes being an accountant seem kind of lame. :)

Travis' smile as he is holding her hand is just too precious.
