Gratitude tag

Stacie started her own Gratitude Tag. The rules are to name 10 (or 5) things you are grateful for and then tag 5 people:

The List......

#1 I am so Thankful for the gift of ADOPTION....That God adopted me into his family to become a daughter of his and to have eternal life...also for the opportunity to adopt two of my three children and for them to be eternally my son and daughter and for my Biological son and his HEART for adoption and the way he has such compassion for others

#2 My BEST Friend.....
I LOVE YOU!!!!!! I am Thankful for the way you lead our family, for the humility that you have and yet the strength that it takes to be "a" I mean "the" MAN!

#3 I have the BEST kids in the Whole World!!!! I can not even began to explain my LOVE for them and how Thankful i am to be there MOM! They are truly AMAZING. I am so thankful how God chose to put my family together. i like to look at us and thank that we are a snap shot of heaven. The five of us from all parts of the world brought together to be a family that Loves, Cares, and Respects one another and Worships the One that orchestrated it all.

#4 I am truly Blessed and so Thankful to have GREAT Friends....Friends that are like family. Friends that live close by and friends that I met through this wonderful thing called Blogging

5# I am so very Thankful for the opportunity to help out in a small way the Orphans in the world through Gobena coffee, and that would not be possible unless YOU the customers of Gobena (in which i am so Thankful for) did not have a heart for Orphans as well....Thank you!!!!

I Tag...

Eva's first hairstyle

Eva went to get her hair done for the first time today. She was starting to get dread locks and I was worried that we would have to cut all her curls off.....well they were able to get the dreads out and give her a little style as well. She did not like the combing out at all



My little girl looks like Snoop Dog, but oh so cute

IN-N-OUT and an Ethiopian Gentleman

Hey Heather Whittaker, I thought you might like this...Steve and i had this for supper


And while we were there we met this great guy Abraham from Ethiopia...he is going to school here and then moving back to Ethiopia. He is a taxi driver and gave us a ride back to our hotel...of course we gave him a good tip. We had great food and great conversation. I miss the people of Ethiopia...we could learn a thing or two from them
