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.

Luke story as told by Luke!



Luke wanted to sign a story for me! He made up the beginning part about his sister Paige flying to China, the rest he said is a "true" story. For those of you that dont know sign language basically his story starts out this his sister Paige flys to China and gives out gifts to everyone. At the sametime he says I  fly to America and gives out gifts to everyone and his dog too! Then we drive for a long time until we arrive home!  I live at home with mommy,daddy, Aaron Tommy, Paige and Me! (at that point I had asked him if he was done his story and he tells me no!)  All done with China, no more China. I am staying in America, staying in America staying! I love my family. Babies are awesome. Soon I will get a new bike (he just got one so I am thinking he meant recently) new bike new it is green! Nothing more I am all done.. I love you , kisses kisses!

Amazing progress with 2 and a half months language that he can now make up and tell his own story! The boy is truly impressive!

I got the "I love family" I gotta watch again to get "China" "America"

Wow what a release to be able to talk to someone finally.
And I'm glad the SW wasn't right.

Tracy, I didn't expect Arielle to be clingy at all since she's older. But she is! follows me everywhere! Totally didn't expect it. It's a little strange for me, especially since I found out she's even older than we thought. But her emotional age is very young. Missed you guys today, get better soon!

I tried to watch the video but it is
unavailable. Maybe my macintosh computer doesn't play it. I enjoyed
following your journey to China. What
a wonderful boy you added to your family. congratulations, and you are
doing a great job of parenting, mm,

Morning Guys - great couple updates! To Anon. - I got the video unavailable on a PC - I'm thinking it's just popular and we'll try again later - but it's not your 'mac'!

Why is it I'm not surprised at Luke's progress however? I guess it's that I got the distinct impression from your trip that he's extremely self motivated - and that lets you make up a ton of ground quickly! Proud of him - and you guys!!

hugs - aus and co.
