A little about us as a family.....

Steve must wonder what in the world I am doing!We have been so lucky to be able to have Deanna B. as our RFC, she is so great. We have also been blessed to have Abby B. as our caseworker.  A huge weight has been lifted up off of my shoulder's. My family is complete! I had the faith and the hope for almost 5 years that this would happen. I love Aspen and Jude with al…
