Our Newest Family Member

Meet Olive....our newest fur baby.

We have had quite the rough weeks around here. We actually had our 4th Adoption fall through in 6 years of trying. This one was extra tough because the baby was born July 25th. We are just so thankful we decided to not meet him until the DNA test were done. In time the DNA test showed the father and he decided he wanted to parent. It breaks our heart for us and for the babies birth mother who was trying to do the right thing by giving her baby a better life. But she is going to parent now and try to start college this fall. What an amazing young lady.....I still love her for the gift she was going to give us- I just pray she has a wonderful life.

For now.....we are done. We have said this before when we had a failed adoption....but after 4 we aren't sure if/when we will try again. So please respect that decision and pray for peace in our hearts. We shall see what the future holds.

Until then we had been talking about getting a puppy and decided to go for it. She is JUST what we needed. She brings smiles and happiness into our home and that is exactly what we wanted.

More pics to come - we just wanted to introduce our newest fur baby.

Thanks for all your support!

Olive is so adorable! I've enjoyed getting to see pictures of this little lady on facebook. I hope she can help you through your healing process. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Corey. :)
