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 2 month Gotcha Day!

This is going to be short and sweet as I am on the run!  But I couldnt let this day go by and not post an update. Happy 2 month Gotcha day! We are still living in extreme bliss and cant beleive that it was 2 months ago today that we met our precious precious boy. Luke has become one of the most affectionate children I have ever met in my life. Which is very good as I am truly a huggy huggy smooshy kind of mom! He loves me to hold him as he leaps into my arms and wraps his long legs around my waist with a smile that is sooo big it his face can barely contain it! Mind you Luke has gained a good amount of weight in the 2 months we have had him (7 lbs to be exact!)  and I am now having a 75 lb boy jump full gear into my arms and wrap his legs around me.  Not an easy feat but let me tell you I will do it as long as I can! Luke has brought such joy to our family. His 2 brothers adore him, his sister and him get along so well and he has become her protector and he loves playing with her as well.

As of this week thanks to the improving weather Luke is now officially ADDICTED to being outside! I must admit I laughed hard the first time he broke a sweat and came in freaking out about the water pouring off of his head. Sad to think that in 10 years of his life he hasnt played hard enough to break a sweat.  That has changed and he is all about riding the scooter and now his bike. Luke and Paige and Tommy arrive home from school and bolt to the garage to get their riding gear and off they go. The have spent at least 3 hours a night after school the last few days riding and riding and riding. I love seeing the joy on their faces as they have each other to laugh and play with.

God has been so good to us! We couldnt have hand made a more perfect child for our family. Thank you Lord for these precious 2 months we have had as a fabulous family of six! We are looking forward to many many long years of joy with our new boy! Here is to many more updates and months and years to come!

                                                 These two have become the best of pals!
                                      Luke and Tommy heading off on their scooters!
 They love when the ice cream man comes. Luke cant beleive we have a truck that drives down the street and brings you ice cream. He says "Yea America and the Ice cream mean" hahahah

                           A mommy and a son together forever! (Thank you God for my gift!)

I must say that my family and I all love Luke as well. His personality really comes out in your posts. I didn't tell you previously but I can both sign and speak Chinese. I have 2 friends who are deaf that I play volleyball with and we are going to China this summer to pick up our son Josiah. Feel free to follow along at www.josiahsnewhome.blogspot.com
