Update on Andrew

Andrew has been home a little over two years now. The first year we were so busy showing him all the things that he's never seen or done before, but we've quieted that down just a little bit. This last year has been a little slower with more family time at home. One thing we did do, was surprise the kids with a trip to The Grand Canyon this summer.

Mark and I have been watching as God has touched Andrew's heart. Andrew has been hungry for the things of God. The hunger grows every day for more and more of the Lord. It's been an amazing transformation in Andrew's heart, disposition, attitude and life. I appreciate all of you that have prayed for him!

Andrew has been working full time at a cabinet shop near our home. He loves his job! They are teaching him a wonderful skill and craft. The owner takes a lot of time working with Andrew and teaching him. Here is Andrew leaving for work.

With all the things going on in Ukraine, we are thankful and blessed that Andrew is here with us. Mark and I have talked many times about our last four adoptions....the journeys that God took us on. It was not always an easy road, but the end results are so rewarding!



  1. I am thankful that Andrew is with you, too. Does the news from Ukraine make him uneasy? I am so happy that he has a job and others who see his worth and take time with him. I'll keep his boss in my prayers along with you and Andrew.

    1. I've asked Andrew how he feels about what is happening with Ukraine. He does not like Putin and he is glad he lives here. We are heartbroken for our friends that we have in Ukraine. We will continue to pray for all the people of Ukraine. Thank you for praying for Andrew.

  5. Thank you so much for sending an update. I've often wondered how this year has been going. I'm sure it is very hard for him to hear about what is going on in the Ukraine and for you all too. I am praying right now for your family. May God bless you as you continue to grow in grace and knowledge of Him.

  6. So lovely to get an update, thank you, God bless your family!
