Gabriel

Our Gabe is a complete card.  I'm not joking when I say that he's like Spiderman.  Our kids indoor trampoline just died after three years of Gabe (and the other kids occasionally)  jumping :-).

It WILL need to be replaced eventually (laughing).

This kid!

Earlier this month Gabriel got a blood test without a complaint.  He went along with Benjamin who needed a sweat test for cystic fibrosis (which turned out negative, YES! :-)).


We found Gabriel's thyroid is not quite doing the things it's supposed to do.  It's POSSIBLY Hypothyroidism.  We're headed to the Endocrinologist to see exactly what's going on.  He definitely doesn't have some of the symptoms...fatigue or difficulty losing weight.  He's CONSTANTLY on the move, always hungry, and has to eat like a horse to gain weight.

We'll see :-).

 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We would LOVE to pray for you!  Send your prayer requests and I will post them below (or if you wish them to remain private, I would still very much be honored to pray for you).

Our Prayer Requests:
*Please pray for our continued adoption journey.  Please pray protection over our family and the ever expanding number of children (here and across the world).  The master of lies loves to mess with anyone trying to follow God.
*Please pray for a financial way.  We have funds due soon with the adoption and many unusual expenses that happen...some only every five years.  They just happen to have happened all at once during back to back adoptions.  We are taking a deep breath and trusting God. 
*Please pray for our beautiful pregnant daughters  (one is a daughter-in-love, but I love her like one) and one precious extended family member who is expecting.  Our daughter Sarah is due any day and they have a lot of things they are trying to figure out. Please pray for discernment, direction, and blessing for Sarah and Ivan.   Please pray for all three of the babies and their health...and health of the mommies.
*Please pray we GLORIFY GOD in ALL THINGS.  This is the most important. 

Our Friends:
*PLEASE pray for a young teen named Alyssa.  She has brain cancer and has had many brain surgeries at this point.  They just found cancer at the base of her spine.  PLEASE pray for healing.  (She is the daughter of two friends from college.)  Please also pray for her family.
*Please pray for my husband's friend at work.  He lost his mother-in-law two weeks ago. (The Windom family)

Know if I'm praying for you, I have not forgotten.  If I don't have your permission to put it here I won't in order to make sure it is only shared if you would like us to.

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.
