BIG NEWS part 2

So here is the BIG NEWS. We are bringing home Bernadette and Mason!

Terrifing, YES! What are we thinking! We have only been home 4 1/2 months and so there went the money.

But then...... look at those sweet faces. Bernadette looks like Clare will at that age. How could I let her never know what a family feels like. Never to be kissed good night and prayed over.
Then Mason.... he just needs a daddy to wrestle and brothers to show him how to really play in the dirt.

God's got this.
Be strong and courageous!


  1. Erika!! Congratulations!! How exciting!!

  2. Erika,

    Congratulations to your whole family. I had been praying like crazy for Bernadette to get a family. Thank you for bringing her and Mason home. We will be praying for all of you as you start on this new adoption journey.
