i had to post some of these precious pictures we just received from haiti! last month we were able to provide a group of orphans with the milk and formula they so desperately needed following the devastation of the multiple hurricanes and tropical storms they have weathered. the non-profit organization we started - the bloom project - is doing great things for orphans all over the world. with all the generous donations and fundraising we have done we have not only helped these Haitian children but also provided funding for two families adopting orphans from china. i feel so fortunate to have been called to this very important work along with my dear friends amy and christy...we can't believe the way bloom keeps GROWING! www.bloomproject.org

we recently shared a special day with dear friends and family at forest hill-ballantyne. along with 2 other families we participated in a dedication ceremony in which joey and i committed to raising lucy to know and love jesus. we know it's the most important thing we can do for our daughter and we're so thankful to have others supporting our efforts. as you can see - even lucy's friend addison was there to love on her and share in the fun : )
the dress she is wearing was picked out by my grandmother and worn by me, my brother (yes...he wore a dress!), and most of my cousins when we were itty bitty.
