It’s hard to imagine that Trey and I have been married for 24 years, and have been best friends for over half of our lives.  Time seems to fly by when you’re sharing it with your best friend and the love of your life.

We’ve been blessed with five beautiful children.  About 11 years ago, God softened our hearts and opened our eyes to adoption.  Because we listened to His call, we have been blessed with Emily, Katherine and Noah.

I hope this journal is a source of encouragement for those that are considering adoption of special needs children.  Our journey hasn’t always been easy, but I know that it’s worth it.  When I look into our adopted children’s eyes, and I see a sparkle and a smile that was once not there, it makes all of the challenging times fade away.
