We are home with Amos, Daisy, Lee and Violet! Meanwhile we have jumped in again for one last very special girl. If you would like to help with that, you can make a non-tax-deductible donation HERE that we can access immediately. You can also make a tax-deductible donation HERE that we can use once we receive travel dates. Or by donating HERE you can help provide her and other children at her orphanage the care and nutrition they desperately need. See all of our current fundraisers HERE. We are thankful for any support you can offer!

2 months home!

Things are still very busy, but starting to get calmer. Everyone is doing really well.

Lee has been working hard on gaining weight! He has gained about 7 pounds since he came home! That's almost a quarter of his starting weight! He is so much happier and so much more comfortable. He is just perfect.

Amos has been doing great with his new routine. He loves going to school and talking about his medical appointments! He is also requesting a trip with his Papa to visit the ocean, by train if possible. He is also doing so much better with adjusting to our family.

We celebrated sweet little Daisy's first birthday in a family! She loved her cake! She is doing so well adjusting and learning new things. She can drink from a sippy cup now, and we are slowly adding in new tastes and textures to her meals. She keeps us on our toes and loves to explore. She is the perfect princess!

Last but not least, Violet is still just as sweet and gentle as ever. Everyone asks if she is always as sweet as when they meet her. Yep, she is! She loves meeting new people and going to new places. She is also growing like a weed! 

We even had time to squeeze in a quick family photo! We aren't all looking at the camera, but we are all there! (Minus one who we are working hard to bring home next!)


  1. Love this! So glad to hear things are going well. What an awesome family!

  2. Too stinking cute momma

  3. you are just plain awesome. I spot lots of thriving kids in these photos, and I am very thankful that you dove right into the ''making life better for others thing.'' You are totally making a difference in the world never forget it.

  4. Such touching news! These treasures are already blossoming!
    I'm amazed at Lee's growing, had to look twice as he so looks like another child. Much much love to all of you guys.❤❤❤❤❤❤

  5. I know you are friends with the McQuinn family - any idea if they will set up a Reeces Rainbow donation fund soon for their newest children? I hope so.
