Happy 4th of July

 Many friends and family brought food.  Water balloon wars, silliness, and embarrassing stories flew every which way.  Our 4th of July (as usual) was very blessed.  We celebrated one little girls 8th birthday, our power house Jael.  We enjoyed sharing the day with our family and friends, Ivan's family (also our family now), and Tom and Elizabeth's (and our) friends.

It was a joy to celebrate our country (and yummy food just a little bit).

These are just a few of MANY pictures.

Much love from our family to yours!

I'm tired tonight, but happy.  We hope your July 4th exploded all over with the blessings of God.

This is all of the younger generation that was there.  
We missed you Ivan! (He was sick.)
It is impossible to get "normal" with a group this big...lol.

This is the closest I could get to a good pic of our goof balls this year.
Gabriel/6, Max/13, Elizabeth/20, Jael/8, Anna/15, Benjamin/12, Tom/21, Rebekah (Bekah)/10, Timothy/4, Sarah/19 (with Isabella in utero at 18 weeks :-)), and Rachel/6

Beautiful Girls including our Grace and our Isabella

The most sane pictures of the boys. (Chuckle)

Happy Fourth of July!!!!

"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31

If you wish to help us bring our Grace~Victory home, the need is immanent.

Our immediate need for Grace is $6,685.  The YouCaring site will update the total as it comes in, or if it comes in another way, we will post an update on that site (and here). 

The YouCaring for Grace goes straight into a separate adoption account.  Thank you for helping bring her home!

 

If you would like to give directly through PayPal with no money being taken out, you can send directly to 1thomkat(at)verizon(dot)net .  The second a donation comes in, we will transfer it to our separate adoption account at the bank.

Thank you again guys!!!!

For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

(Grace's Verse)

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
