This blog has been severely neglected. We have had a great summer!
Austin, our oldest graduated!
Hubby and our 2 oldest went to Ethiopia for 10 days with Ethiopia Smiles 2012.
They had an AMAZING time!
Austin assisting and Autumn supporting!
Project HOPEFUL won a $50,000 grant from Cultivate Wines! I have been training for a 1/2 marathon for Project HOPEFUL. If you want to support me here I would appreciate it!
We had a great time with my BFF Karla and her family.
So sad to see them go back home to Georgia!
Bart and I are traveling to TX this weekend to participate in a parenting training based on the Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) model developed by Dr. Karyn Purvis and her colleagues. We have been doing intense homework the last 8 weeks in preparation for the training, and are looking forward to putting it all together this weekend so we can be of support to other parents around us. We will be trained to come alongside other parents and equip them with some wonderful parenting tools.
We are excited to see how God is going to use us!
I've also been busy filling out paperwork for our next adoption!!
Thats right! The Boultons are adopting again!
We are adopting a baby with Down Syndrome from the Ukraine.
We are doing a blind referral, so that means we have no idea who our child is.
We don't know if it's a boy or girl. We have requested a child under the age of 2 with Down Syndrome.
We are all very excited to have a baby in the house again.
It's been a LONG time since we've changed diapers around here.
We trust that God is the keeper of the details!
Well, I think I've left you with enough to chew on for now. I'll be back soon! ;)
