This blog chronicles the miracles and struggles of our daughters, Emily and Olivia. Emily was born 15 weeks early and had many complications, but she continues to amaze us! Olivia, born in China with heart complications, is also beating the odds. She joined her forever family (us!) when she was four years old and has been doing wonderfully! UPDATE: We started homeschooling August 2009 :)

Since we're discussing family additions, it has just occurred to me that although I've posted pix of our new canine family member on Facebook, I've never posted about our new dog here. We adopted Lily in July after our beloved (almost 16 year old) Chelsea died in June. Lily is about a year old and appears to be a lab/beagle mix, around 45 pounds. She was about to be euthanized along with all the other animals in the southern IN pound because they didn't want to pay overtime for a holiday weekend (July 4th). Rover Rescue here in IL went down and saved a van load and two days later Lily joined our family. I don't know much about her history, but she was apparently picked up as a stray?? She's a sweet girl and has been a great addition to our family. The girls are totally in love!! I had some fun with her pictures as you can see here:
