Happy #worldadoptionday !!! So proud of @hank for making today known! Everyone draw a smile on your hand and tag @worldadoptionday and me because I love seeing them!! #thankfulforadoption #blessedbyadoption #familyforeverychild #adopttogether

Happy #worldadoptionday!
We are as passionate about people as we are about food and loved that we could partner with @adopttogether for #FVBuiltMe. It was a treat to have the ladies of @cinestar join us - check out their Passion + Purpose series featuring the dinner and @adopttogether! (Link in my profile)
It is without a doubt that Family has been a part of building who we are and the beauty we create. From the flavors in my food, to the stories that we tell, the way our families help build tables and pack up our cars at the end of the night, to their loving words in the middle of the madness - their support and love is invaluable.
We believe that every child deserves that love and particular brand of magic.

Friends!
We are on @CNN today.
So grateful to tell our story.
Couple things: TV doesn't help us raise money. It's does ONE thing better than ANYTHING else...it helps us reach families. People tell us YEARS later how they decided to adopt because they saw us in a magazine or on a Facebook post. So, we'd love it if you'd help us find more families by simply sharing the link in bio. Directly to families or anywhere on your socials. THANK YOU!

@adopttogether donor dinner set up complete. Such a great organization with the goal to create a world with a #familyforeverychild 🙌🏼

Anytime Donnie has a choice of what he would like to eat, he will choose a cheeseburger 100% of the time, but tonight he struggled his way through some chicken nuggets and fries with a small soda bribe so his daddy could try the new Chick Fil A gluten free roll🙂

We literally couldn't take a decent picture this weekend if our lives depended on it, but we survived our first weekend camping as a family of three with a crazy dog without friends or family there to help us...that requires some documentation!🙂

This whole parade thing was a new experience for Donnie. The idea of people throwing candy at him seemed great, but being able to actually get candy and stay safe with the parade floats driving through was a little tough at times. Thankfully Uncle Dave was able to get this man to hand some to Donnie🙂

Change is tough. Transitioning to his summer program has made for a challenging week, but nothing can take away his smile when he comes down the water slide🙂

Before Donnie moved in, I would always say I would never have a kid who liked Caillou. So God gave me one that not only likes him, but can do a perfect Caillou whiny voice impression while he scripts episode after episode🙄

A little over a year ago he was borderline being labeled "failure to thrive". Tonight he had a bowl of tortellini, some chicken, and a bowl of broccoli for dinner. He started his normal nightly routine but came back downstairs asking for a sandwich and more broccoli. I remember wondering a year ago if we would ever be able see much change in his nutrition. With over 20lbs gained, multiple new foods added to his diet, and a growing appetite, I'm still amazed every day by this boy💙

Visiting his old school can bring out all kinds of emotions. Tomorrow could be a tough day as a result, but we fully believe in keeping healthy connections. We are so thankful for the staff there who chose to advocate for a kid who easily could have gotten "lost in the system". They love seeing him and how much he has grown, and, although it may not seem that he shows it, he loves reconnecting with those who cared so deeply for him for those three and a half years💙

Luau Day for his last day of school! Hard to believe it's his last day already! We are so thankful for the staff who worked tirelessly with Donnie throughout this year! They have gone above and beyond, and as a result, he has grown in ways that were thought to be impossible!

I'm so proud to be a Dad today! Not only do I get to celebrate these two but we just received our approved home study which officially matches us to another child!!! .….......................…........................................................
Help us raise the rest of the funds to expand our family! Link in profile.

This kid right here just finished out his ninth day in a row without any challenging behaviors at school or home for the first time since August! We might run out of candy and ink from printing so many perfect day charts, but we couldn't be more proud of him!!💙

Oh and he's learning to ride a scooter...just another thing people weren't sure if he could do...no big deal🙂

We don't know who Andrew is, but we do know if he cries, he will not earn computer. Donnie loves to Google social stories, and this is just one of the many he thinks is hilarious. We often quote his favorite social stories in an effort to get him to smile for pictures...this is the face he gave us when when we asked him what would happen if Andrew cried😂
