July 4th and more

It has been busy around here! We are happy to report that Ethan and Chris made it back from Boy Scout Camp after 10 long days. It is great to have them back. I attached a photo of our visit.

We also had a great time on July 4th. We missed Ethan and Chris, but we enjoyed the evening with our good friends.

Finally, Devin had his 3rd set of ear tubes put in 7/11. He is doing great! Here is a picture of before the surgery.

Until next time...

Heartbreaking News

Last Monday we received a phone call that broke our hearts. Cooper’s birthparents have decided to parent him. This was definitely not the news we were expecting. Things were going so smoothly, and we hoped he would be home in just a few weeks – just in time for his 1st birthday. We had everything ready for him!
Even though we are very sad that he is not coming to our home, we know this is a huge blessing for Cooper and his family. His mom and dad get to raise their beautiful baby boy, and he gets to grow up with parents that we know love him and want the best for him. Our hope for him is that he grows up healthy, happy and loved beyond measure.
We know he is a special little boy, and he will always have a special place in our hearts. Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers - especially that our children understand. Finally, please pray that his transition to his parents goes smoothly.
