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.
Halloween is here and Luke was excited about the prospect of getting candy. He really gets almost none here and was given candy NON-STOP in his orphanage. It is crazy when he tells me how they used candy for just about everything. Especially when he was bad.... well heck I would behave badly a ton more if you gave me candy every time I was bad.. They used it to "shut him up" whenever he got vocal. The day we got Luke he came to us with 2 pockets stuff to the gills with candy and ate it non-stop until those suckers were gone.. So he was pretty excited to know he was going to get some candy. We went and picked pumpkins the other day and he LOVED it! We carved our pumpkins and I thought he would think it was the strangest thing ever but really he thought it was cool! Halloween was a great success. Luke was not sure what all the hub bub was about but we set out with his Brother, Tommy, Sister, Paige, Cousin, Katelyn. Luke's Nanny, Poppy, Mom-mom, Aunt Amy, Grandma and Pop-pop were all here! We had a great night and it was incredible to be wit so much family. I am going to post some pictures so you can see how much fun we had!
