March update

Wonderful times. Natalie digs at the park, minus 2 front teeth. Nina tries out a Princess Leia starter hairdo. Nick completes his DARE poster with the help of Homer.

We are enjoying Nina as she heads into the terrible twos. She was 1 of only 131 orphans to be adopted from Kazakhstan last year - we are blessed each day. She walks all around now, runs the house, and has around 20 words in her vocabulary. Her first word was "up" as in "pick me up!" Her favorite word is "bye bye" as in "let's go somewhere, bye bye!" She still loves anything electronic including cell phones, cordless phones, TV remotes, and computers. Her new favorite is the car keys - she hits the button in the house and listens for the car horn to honk in in the garage. All is good.

Our precious son and dear brother Clint was born 8 years ago today. We keep him close in our hearts and stand amazed at his impact. We have witnessed God's love and power of restoration for our family - let us rejoice and always remember.
