Here comes Hurricane Irene!

Yikes! We thought life was exciting enough living with a hurricane named IRINA! Now this! Busy battening down the hatches and sneaking in my technology fill before the power goes out! Keep us in prayer as we get set to weather the storm. A hurricane, no power, and 10 kids stuck in the house together at the end of the summer. Oh boy! Should be interesting!

Praise God!

My heart rejoices today! Sweet Liliana's ransom has been raised AND she has a paper-ready family! Please join me in praying she is home quickly. Please also pray for the MANY like her, in desperate need of being rescued.

Sometimes I wish I didn't know...

BUT I do know, and that makes me accountable.....
(the original post with picture has been edited)

Proverbs 24:11-12
New International Version (NIV)

11 Rescue those being led away to death;
   hold back those staggering toward slaughter.
12 If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,”
   does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who guards your life know it?
   Will he not repay everyone according to what they have done?

Sam's Krazy Kar!

Isn't this cool? After seeing Sam love the hand crank ride at Knoebels, I was determined to find him some type of adaptive bike. We found this very cool and relatively inexpensive ($69.99 on Amazon) compared to "real" specialty bikes (thousands of dollars!). He wants to do whatever the other kids are doing and he is determined to learn a way. I love his persistence and that he doesn't become frustrated or quit. He is such a great role model. He is going to achieve great things!

A picture of the Boroughs Bunch-all of us!

We had a lot of fun on the 4th of July, meeting up with some visiting friends at a local water ice/ ice cream place. My friend took this family picture of us. Irina was not happy. It is very fitting, because it really captures our girl this summer. We are headed back to the developmental pediatrician next week to see how we can help little miss grumpy.

Fun day!

We took the 4 youngest boys to Knoebels amusement park for the day on our way to pick up their sister from camp. We had a blast! Babushka (mom-mom) went with us. Sam desperately wanted to try the hand crank train ride. He loved it. He just goes for it with every new experience! We can't wait to go back. We got to meet up with our good friends the Torres family. We met 2 years ago when adopting in Ukraine, so it was a lot of fun to finally meet up stateside!
