A Model and a Wrestler

Y’all, Conner has the MOST PRECIOUS faces EVER!

He seriously entertains us All.  Day.  Long.  with his many faces.  Conner has most definitely figured out how to melt everyone’s heart by sharing his most amazing smile with us.  We’ve decided Conner would be an awesome model because he absolutely loves to charm us with his adorable, never-ending-yet-always-changing, perfect, model-status smiles.


And then there’s these two (see video below):



Cooper is not one to entertain us with his smiles, but he LOVES to wrestle with his brother, Kiefer.  He loves it so much that if Kiefer is within sight of Cooper, Cooper always makes a beeline to attack Kiefer.  He loves wrestling that much!  Perhaps there’s a wrestling career in Cooper’s future?!?!  The Von Erich brothers got nothing on ya, Cooper!


Both Cooper and Conner are an absolute delight.  They continue to bless us far greater than we could ever bless them.


Regardless of whether modeling or wrestling is in the future for these boys, we trust God has the ultimate plan for their lives.  We know it will be good, and we look forward to continuing to watch their beautiful lives be redeemed.  What an awesome God we serve!

The Greatest of These is Love

Happy Valentine’s Day!



“Let brotherly love continue.” –Hebrews 13:1



Cooper has my heart.  And my hand.  Precious Valentine!



We saw the movie Frozen today for Valentine’s Day!

Boss Your Heart!

Video Snippets of the Littles

Here’s a short video of Cooper working hard with his home health physical therapist on our front porch.  He’s come so far in less than two years.  This boy had bilateral club foot and had never stood up, much less walked, the first six years of his life in Ukraine.  What a hero this little blessing is!  God never ceases to amaze me.  Praise Him for He hath done (and continues to do) great things!



And this video of Conner is THE BEST!  Conner knows and uses numerous ASL signs.  He is SO expressive when he signs words.  This is Conner’s newest ASL word—“deer”.  He ALWAYS makes this face when he signs “deer”.  Always.  Just precious.


Conner is doing so well after his pyloroplasty.  He has gained two full pounds in two weeks!  His appetite is increased, and he is holding food down better than he ever has.  We are grateful for your prayers and cannot thank God enough for all He has done (and continues to do) in Conner’s life.  This boy is such a blessing.  Hallelujah!



And these two little treasures have a ball playing rough together.  Kiefer loves having a little sis who loves to play the way the boys do!  Listen to Selah giggle at the beginning of this video, as she backs away from Kiefer.  Joyful noise, especially considering this little miracle wasn’t supposed to be alive, nor walk, nor talk. Oh my word.  My heart is overflowing.


There’s no doubt the blessings are abundant in and around our home!  Thank You, Jesus!
