From 4 kids to 5 kids to 6 kids

Beau here. Will keep this short. A couple weeks ago we got certified as foster parents. On Wednesday, October 6, a new born girl named "L" was placed with us for foster care. On Thursday, October 7, we got a call asking if we would consider adopting (not fostering) a baby girl who was not born yet, but due on that day. We said yes. Michelle was born on Sunday, October 10, and she came home from the hospital with us last Tuesday, October 12. So we went from 4 to 5 to 6 kids in less than one week's time. We are praying for baby L's family and hope a person in her family will be qualified to foster her in the near-term. If not, we will count it a blessing to continue having her in our family as long as the Lord wills. More later.

And yes, we went out this week and bought a Chevy Express large passenger van. I think it is cool. Nat is not there yet... :)
