It’s Official, and has been for awhile …

but I’m waiting around to post about it. I can now announce that Joey and Sandy are legally my (and Kristal’s) son and daughter. The paperwork finally cleared the county clerk a few weeks ago. They were adopted in our hearts over two years ago when they first slept under the roof we share today. There has been some rocky times and some happy times, and I expect more of the same for many years to come.

We have also gotten out of the foster care business, as I’m getting too old for this – uh – stuff, and we really don’t have the room for any more pitter-patter of little feet. Kristal would like another girl to be Sandy’s “pal”, but it’s taking all of my energy to be the best dad I can be for the three we run after now. I’ve included a picture below, where the monkey in the middle is Josh, our first blessing. He’ll be turning 11 next month. Joey is 6 and Sandy is 5. We continue to praise God for the love gifts He has sent to us.

  1. Congratulations! They are all adorable. I’ll continue to pray for your family – that God continues to bless, guide and grant patience to the parents!

    Best news I’ve had all month.

  2. Thanks! It’s the best news for us too, even better than saving a lot on our car insurance. Sandy is just getting over a cold, or I would have shot some more recent pictures. We just got about 5″ of snow early Monday, overnight lows in the teens, and by Saturday it will be in the 70’s. March is coming in like a confused lion.

  3. Congrats!! Three kids is a good size family (that’s where we’re stopping, too), though I can understand Kristal’s sentiments. All I’ve got for female companionship is a cat. =-7 She’s a very loyal cat, though!
