Part of the Holt Family

This blog would not exist without the dedication and love for the world's orphans that the staff of Holt International possess.  Our family would not exist in it's present form.  We were asked to write an update for the Holt International Magazine on Lucas and Eli's adoption, transition and give a brief glimpse into our family's world.

If you'd be interested in reading the article it appears in the latest issue of the magazine.  You should be able to access it with the link below.

I Am

Have I told you lately that boys can be really strange?  Or have I mentioned that their sense of humor is really weird too?  They are and it is.  Strange and weird.

If you'd ever want to know what is going through any of your children's heads, no matter their works on the adult "children" too....simply make supper, make sure to sit at the table and then hold on for the ride because you will learn the most amazing, ridiculous, heart  felt and goofy things about your kids.

Last nights' conversational extravaganza was how many names Eli could come up with to call himself.  Tuna, Michael Jordan, amazing, cabbage, super,  runner, smart are but to name a few.  Who knows where he dug these up.  I'm glad to see some high self esteem descriptions but am totally stumped by tuna....who I said weird but hilarious.  Sit down with your'll never be bored.
