Something she would never have thought of

So I bet Nerlande would have never thought that people dressed up like a Pickle.
At the Yard sale she was able to met her first Walking Pickle.

The kids are adjusting Great!

Some Things are hard to believe

So It has been awhile since I last posted anything,well we have been dealing with some personal things that are very hard to believe since the main person is my Mother.
when we started the adoption process she was not very happy with our country of choice,and with all the news press and the story that they ran yesterday it has finally came to a Head, she did not like that people where going to see that her daughter had adopted 3 Haitian kids. Yes I know it shocking I have been trying to figure out how people can be like this. Well on to better things we had taken our family to our first MLS Soccer game last week our kids had so much fun and I have become a fan of soccer it was a blast!!

A busy weekend

This  last weekend was a busy one,On Saturday we had our yearly yard sale with B98.7 they where very kind and had donated the booth fee to our Orphanage.
We had to leave a little bit early because our competion soccer team was having tryouts and Fabrice was very excited to go play soccer. He is so good at soccer that he does not have to do the 3 tryouts that they require. the head coach came over to me at the end of the tryouts to talk about what a super star he is and to hear fabrices whole story.
We are so proud of him!
Then on sunday we had a very nice Mothers day Fabrice gave me a letter he worte in school with a drawing and Dave and the kids gave me very nice patio umberlla so we can sit under some shade when we are out back.
But it was just a great weekend having the kids home and here sharing all the good times.

Let's cook

WOW can you believe that it has been 3 months that our sweet kids have been home.
We have been to ton's of doctors Appt. I have learned alot about bugs that live in Haiti.
It has been so fun to see how well each kid is adjusting and to learn what they love and like and what they do not like. They each are learning ton's of English,Fabrice is still Holding onto his Kreyol. Nerlande and Yonelson both love to cook and help with dinner wich is so fun.
Our older kids love playing and Jumping on the jumpoline with the little ones are family has really come together and it feels so right.
Today we woke up Bright and Earler to go on B98.7 to talk about our Yard sale coming up on Saturday and to have them meet Nerlande and yonelson and Fabrice. The radio sation has been so Helpful and supportive with the non-Profit and they where always calling us to give us Information about group's that had traveled to Port au price after the earthquake had hit, and we still where waiting on word about our kids. 
They are two really neat people and I feel very blessed to know them and call them our friend.
