One time, right after saying yes to taking Ellie, Elyse's big sister, "on board our train," I was leaving for Africa the next week while Adam was left with 6 boys and a newborn baby girl for two whole weeks! He's a champ, guys.
Our Reggie, pictured in the bright green shirt to match his personality, has kept us on our toes his entire life from being able to ride a Razor scooter down big ramps at a skate park at two years of age, to pulling the fire alarm at preschool "because it makes the fire trucks come." At 7 years old, he could stand on the ground a do a backflip! There is never a dull moment in our home with any of these guys.
But we wouldn't trade this exhausting life and overstuffed house for anything. As low as the trenches have gone is as deep as our hearts have loved. Sometimes it's hard to see the depths of the loss these little ones had to walk through to become ours. Never in our wildest dreams could we have planned this amazingly hard and most beautiful story for our family.
