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's first trip to the beach!

Luke's first time at the Beach and in the Ocean! I dont believe I need to say much as my pictures say just about everything!

We were afraid that Luke would not like the sand and the Ocean and the beach is one of our favorite places to go! Our fears were unfounded as Luke claimed "This is the best place ever!" Oh Luke how your family agrees with you!!!

I will post of our Trip to Creation Northeast from June 25-July 3rd in my next post as there is SO much to say and show you!

         Luke's first few moments on the beach and he couldnt wait to get in the water!

Morning Tracy - great day for sure - the sun, the sea, and the thing I might miss the most is the smell of it all - it's just a comforting thing to me!!

Looking forward to the next post!

hugs - aus and co.

I have been following your blog for sometime. We have 3 adopted children and 1 biological daughter. It is wonderful to see such happiness. We also go to Brigantine Beach (the Islander on 37th). Do you go there often? WE have met so many adoptive families there. Have a great summer.

He looks so happy in all your pictures! And in person! He is really happy Tracy, his life has changed forever! Arielle announced to me when we where buying a bathing suit that she does not swim and is not "allowed" to. Ha! So when she went to be beach last week she only wore the top part of her bathing suit with a tee shirt over it and a pair of long shorts. But as soon as she saw how much fun the ocean was she was totally drenched fully dressed :) She's asked me everyday this week "beach?" ...she wants to go back. She didn't really get her whole body into the water but I think its a matter of time.
