About Us


Family

Welcome to the current state of life of Todd and Erin where the word “we” started at the elementary school water fountain. Boy met girl, boy was too shy to talk to girl, but no worries girl talks to anyone and was especially interested in this boy with the big smile and brown eyes.  Awwh, sweet thought but no, actually we weren’t young sweet hearts, we were both in college working on our teaching degrees.  That’s how it all started.
Now, 17 years of marriage later and 5 kids later, the word “we” is still going strong! 

We love our life together, we adore our kids, and we worship an awesome mighty God.  We were both adopted.  Adopted by His amazing grace, His intentional love was sent to find us- yes, we were sought- ONE SOUGHT ME.  We were lost and in a sinful state.  We chose to be recipients of the sacrificial gift of one, Jesus.  His love overwhelmed us. In His unconditional, never changing love we were welcomed into the family of God.  We were accepted. We were changed. We are children of the King and you can be too.  There’s always room for ONE more.

Details, Details, and What Can We Do?

It's a girl!  Thank you for the excitement and prayers of joy for us as we announced our next adoption!

We have kept our finger on the pulse in the adoption world since bringing home our son, and all I can contribute finding out about this adoption is by the direction of God the Father.  He "places the lonely in families!" - Psalm 68:6 

I know that everyone is anxious to know more details, trust me, I know it's part of the excitement to hear the scoop! What I can say is that she is 7 years old and very petite.  She has brown eyes, brown curly hair, and beautiful brown skin.  Her smile is contagious and her eyes show that she is spunky inside of that tiny frame.  She loves to laugh and eat pie!

What I can't say is all of her story.  It's very complicated, emotionally complex, broken. And at her age of understanding all that is going on around her, well, it's her story and we want to respect that privacy for her.  While this is a time of joy and celebration…

What? Wait? Family of 8?

We would like to officially announce to you that a very special little person will be joining our family VERY SOON! Surprise!  We are adopting!

It's a girl!!  We cannot wait to bring our little girl home, hold her in our arms, and provide her with a safe, healthy, and loving family as she grows.  She is 7 years old and with a complicated past, our newest child needs to come home as soon as possible.  She will need prayers as she adjusts and heals.  We will need prayers for strength, understanding, and God's covering to be over us as we walk beside her.  Please commit this to your daily prayers.

Our family has already been busy taking steps of faith and has begun this process.  For the remaining costs of legal fees and travel, we are asking for you gifts to join into this blessing of adoption! When you give financially, you become invested in the ministry of orphan care along with us.  Our fundraising goal is a remaining $13,000 to bring our daughter home.

Please, we are askin…

Airplane Tray Table Cover for Travel!

In my part of the world, the popular sport of choice for this season is sewing.  Sewing?  Yes, well, it's a winter sport for me with its challenges, obstacles, and skills to be improved upon!  Not to mention that it hasn't been above 10 degrees Fahrenheit for near a month and with wind chills at -25 to -40 tonight, one just has to stay inside in the comfy cozy walls of home!

Out comes the sewing machine and projects left behind from seasons past.  This time, I decided to tackle a new project that will be put to good use in the future: an Airplane Tray Table Cover for future traveling!  Thinking of sunny Ethiopia just brightens the mood from the winter blues too!

After searching the web, and viewing images of other "airplane tray table covers" (search it, you'll find them), I decided to create my own.  This is pic is of my first attempt.  Overall, it turned out fine and I am happy with the end result.  To give you an idea, this would slip over the airplane tray…
