If you’ve read my blog for awhile, you’ll probably remember my brother, Richie (my only sibling), and my sister-in-law, Missy, and their three children, Trey, Kemper, and Laci. I posted about Richie especially during the time he served in Iraq a couple of years ago.
I’ve wanted to spill the beans and share their good news for awhile, but couldn’t do so just yet because of the red tape, ifs and buts, and unknowns. But I now have their permission and okay to share!
A few months ago, they received a phone call. It was a call asking (because they were related) if they would be interested in “taking” two children that were in the care of social services.
Of course they had to go through all the processes including a homestudy and DHR in both states involved. After much time, effort, and lots of prayer, they were recommended to be the parents of these two precious girls.
They are already great parents to their three children. But now they are becoming of family of seven……adding two more children to their family!
So meet my two new nieces!
Sydney is 18 months old.
Ellie Grace is 8 months old.
The following are pictures of them on the long drive home on Friday, just a few hours after they were theirs!

Sleeping beauty Ellie Grace:
Aren’t they darling? We can’t wait to get our hands on them! They're little blessings and they are in for a blessing as well! God has a plan for each one of them!
We are thrilled to add two more nieces to our family (and cousins for our kids)! God is good!
And it’s going to be fun shopping in the little girl section again. :)
