blessed to be married to Joel, chosen to be Sonja and Nico's Mom and humbled to be called a child of God. Nico was adopted from Colombia and joined our family in July of 2000. Sonja was adopted from Guatemala and joined our family in February of 2007. Our family of four is finally together! I was adopted as an infant into a loving family. Later in life when I met my husband, I found out that his mother was also adopted. My husband and I have been married since 1992. God continues to carry us through this thing called life!
