About Me

My name is Tracy and I am married to an amazing man, his name is Thomas! We are a busy family that is always on the go between church, school, work and sports.... we are not a sitting around kind of family. We have 4 amazing children and are working on bringing home Elias to make 5. My hubby is Deaf and I am a sign language interpreter,we are very involved in the Deaf community and are excited to be adding another Deaf member to our family. Our kids, Aaron-19, Luke-11, Tommy-10 and Paige-5 are anxious for their new brother to be home. This is our second adoption and we are learning more everyday to lean on God, this journey is already strengthening our faith! We are working on learning how to turn everything over to God and know that He has a perfect plan and all will happen in His time! Good things come to those who wait.

Happy "10th" Birthday Luke XinHai!!!!!!

Wed Sept 22nd is Luke's 10th Birthday. He will be spending this Birthday in the orphanage that he has been in since he was 8 months old. We sent him a Birthday package and cake for his Birthday through Angela with Lady Bugs N Love (the same women who sent our first care package for us and we LOVE her) so hopefully soon we will have new pictures of his birthday to share. It is hard knowing that Luke now knows about us but will spend his special day without us. One thing I am unsure of is whether the orphanage will actually celebrate his birthday tomorrow as tomorrow is a big Holiday in China. The Autumn Moon Festival is Sept 22nd so Angela wasn't sure if they would celebrate his birthday because it is already a big holiday. We shall see what happens. I know we are thinking of him here and praying lots of prayers for him and hoping and praying he knows how much love we have for him.  This WILL be his last birthday celebrated without his family. Say some prayers for our precious son on his special day. We love you Luke XinHai!


It is already Sept 22nd in China so it is Luke's Birthday already for him, but it will be for us tomorrow. Crazy how that happens. We have been praying for you all day today and will do so again tomorrow. We are going to have a small cake at our house for him tomorrow (his Brother, Tommys suggestion) and some prayer time for his Birthday. Cant wait to have a heck of a shin dig for his 11th Birthday. 
Love you Luke!
