Our Story

Our Story
We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands.
~ Kristi Larson ~

Not flesh of my flesh, Nor bone of my bone, But still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute, You didn't grow under my heart - but in it!
~ Fleur Conkling Heylinger ~
Adoption is not the call to have the perfect, rosy family. It is the CALL to Give LOVE, MERCY, and PATIENCE.

Krohn Compassion 5K - A SUCCESS

We hosted our first ever 5K today to raise $$ to bring our sweet little man home!  We had 54 amazing friends and fam come out to race and help out with the event!  The weather was beautiful - mid 80's with a slight breeze, the location was beautiful - thanks again Still Water Hollow - - the family and friends coming along side of us in love and support was what this mama heart needed!

One of the main reasons I ended up flying home from Ethiopia, as scheduled, instead of staying in country with Nahome until we cleared embassy was to put together this 5K.  Some of the other reasons were to move the kids' bedrooms around and finish moving into my new classroom.  Bedrooms done - check, 5K done - check, working on classroom next week - - - SO now we can head back - anytime now!!

Thanks again to all the family and friends who came out today - we are a pretty good looking group if I do say so myself!  Can't wait to see all of you in a pic like this at the airport welcoming Nahome to the family!

Please continue to pray for our family!  That our paperwork would be complete and accurate.  That it will make its way to the US embassy THIS week!  Pray for Nahome's heart as he waits for us to come take him home.  Pray for him as he leaves his country and goes through all the transitions and changes that an international adoption brings.  Pray for our hearts as we wait!  Pray for all of our kids as we learn and adjust to our new family dynamic!  Pray that God would be Glorified through our story!
