Time to update our front page I think! We did family pictures at our home a couple of Sunday evenings ago, just before all the rain!. Very thankful to have most of our kids come even with the short notice. Weiner roast to follow. It was a lot of fun.

Our family (24 out of 30 were able to come) We love our kids!

All through our First adoption, ( I’ll call it Steeve’s Adoption Volume.1 ), Rob and I sought to protect our kids from the eyes of the world, to help them heal in a loving, calm environment. To grow and play and do things that all kids do. To stop the questions: ‘where are their parents’? ‘Did they die?’ ‘Were they abused?’ etc. None of these questions needed to be answered.  Not here anyway.  Our kids are doing well, and for that we are thankful.DSC_0186

Going public is now with their consent and understanding that they may face these types of questions in the future.  We hope we have given them some tools as to how to deal with things. We know we have pretty special and wonderful children!.  We are currently well into Steeves Adoption Volume 2.  Please read on………:)

Sharon and I hope, and pray as you follow us down the path of our first adoption and into our second, you will be inspired to reach out and help other orphans. Maybe even inspired to join with us as we work to bring home more siblings to provide for them a forever family!

Niamh, Conor and Declan’s last evening at the orphanage before coming home! Can you spot them?

This photo alone should touch your heart – such beautiful children but without a family!
