Naughty or Nice?

We had a nice conversation with Santa and explained a few things. It is tough being a spunky two year old little boy...

Hung my stocking by the chimney with care...
in hopes that St. Nick would REALLY be fair!

I sat nicely on Daddy's lap and listened to a Christmas story.

Had just a small incident with a candy cane....


Santa decided I was extra nice and brought me
a shiny new tricycle!


Alex is doing great! He has transitioned to his new home beautifully. Sleeps in his bed at night and LOVES playing with his sisters. There are a few adjustments here and there but we could not be happier with how our little guy is doing! Thank you again for all of your prayers, emails, phone calls... I promise to catch up with everyone soon!

Love and Blessings this Holiday Season.

Coming Home!

We arrived in the Dominican Republic on June 10th and we are coming home on December 10th.

6 months.

God had quite the journey planned for us!

JT and I are forever changed by our adoption experience. Not only are we parents to an adorable, funny and busy 2 year old boy...we have also been through a life changing experience.

God has worked through us - in us and around us. Mostly he has worked in us. We have been stretched, broken, refined, covered, blessed and simply held.

We are not the same JT and Angie that began this journey. Our girls are not the same. There is no way that we could be. You see when God has shown himself to you over and over and over again...there is change.

It was painful and hard at times, but that's when we knew we were growing! God pulled us closer to him. Directing our attention and focus back on him. Back on the one who called us to adoption...the one who knew we would say, "Yes!"

Our journey has been about so much more than our precious son. But -oh what a gift he is! Our journey has also been about surrender as well . Being reminded that God is in control. All the time. With all things.

We arrived in the Dominican Republic

and God met us there.

Thank you all for your continued prayers and support. We are so grateful and can not wait to introduce you to Alex!
