  1. I am glad you have a supportive family- that means so much!! I think our families were uneducated about the adoption process and didn't want to see us hurt, which made them look unsupportive when we started our adoptive journey. But after almost 12 years, three daughters and a son they have came a long way!
  2. Congratulations Erin, Jeff, and big brother Riley! Girls are amazing!
  3. We are so sorry to hear this. Bob was there for Bella and Gabby's finalization also and was always so friendly. We are thinking and praying for his family and friends.
  4. Congratulations Kim and Gip! Baby Irie is so beautiful and you look so very happy, I am so very excited for you!
  5. That is exciting Leah! Brian was almost 42 and I was 37 when Kiera was placed with us. Although Kiera was 2 1/2 years when we took placement of her, it was a big adjustment for her and our family.
  6. I have had people make insensitive comments pertaining to the girls that make me shake my head...All of those comments were meant to be somewhat of a compliment (I think) but it sure didn't sound like that to us. The best you can do is try to educate them as patiently as you can. Nicole
  7. Congratulations Sherry & Michael! We are so happy for you! What a beautiful name!

  18. We really wanted to go to Camp this year also..we went five years ago and had a great time with alot of wonderful memories! Isabella starts kindergarten next week and it really isn't feasable to attend camp because she has orientation on Wednesday and starts school on Thursday. Brian hates to fly, so we would be driving 18 hours, it would be so hard to get back to Iowa from Texas and get Bella all rested up for school. And Gabby is potty training also. We hope to adopt again and hope that this does not exclude us from becoming an againer! I have been reading the Camp Abrazo thread and I am s
