October 24th 2002

I missed posting this yesterday.
Hard to believe that 5 years ago on October 24 we were approved
by a very tough judge in Irkutsk, Russia to adopt our 4th child!
Ekaterina, We are so proud to have you in our family!!!!

My favorite all time song

Some of you know that I was adopted when I was a baby. God gave me the best parents in the whole wide world. Growing up and not knowing my heritage when I was younger was difficult at the time. Even though in reality it doesn't really matter much to me because I am a child of God and that is the only heritage that I care about. Growing up my favorite song has always been "Amazing Grace" on the bagpipes. Imagine my surprise in learning that I was part scotch.

I just wanted to share my favorite song with you today!!

This was the best one I could find on you tube.
