God Makes The Front Page!!!!

Only God could 'move mountains' to get the headline on the front page of our hometown newspaper, The Knoxville News-Sentinel! This article ran on the top of the front page of our Sunday edition with the large quote at the top: "We serve an amazing God." WOW! Go, God, go! May He continue to get ALL the glory for anything good that comes out of our journey!

You can read the article here:

Also look for the slide show on the same website for some more pics of our trip and our time since we've returned.

Lastly, please pray as I will be returning to Ethiopia Sept 13-18 to bring our sweet McKinley Kalu home at last. I am excited that my sister will be travelling with me. Pray for safety, health and sleep on the long flight! Also, we will be meeting our children's birth grandmother...we are so thankful to meet her and hope to be able to learn more of our children's heritage for them to know someday.

Thank you all for your continued support and prayers. The steps of our journey have not all been easy...but the challenges are definitely worth it and we know we are on the exact path God has called us to. He is growing and stretching and blessing us in so many ways.

Madison made this great video of Kiya Isaiah the past few days and we thought it was really cute! If nothing else we are having fun around here! 

P.S. Madison says..."Enjoy! And after it says THE END...keep watching!"

New Bedtime Routine to the sounds of TobyMac!!

We may have begun a new Hamilton boys' bedtime routine tonight...to the rockin' sounds of TobyMac! If you have 3 minutes to spare, you might enjoy the awesome moves of these three guys...Hilarious! (I'm also hoping it will wear them out a bit to help them sleep just a little later in the morning...hee!hee!)

The Beach...continued

We are home now and wanted to share a few more pictures from our beach trip. We had a wonderful, fun week at Rosemary but we are so glad to be home!!  School starts in two weeks...so we hope to enjoy the last 'carefree' days and then get settled in to whatever our 'new normal' looks like.  We'll keep you posted on that one! :) 


Here is our beautiful princess!  Wasn't she four just yesterday?

 And our serious fisherman...nothing but nibbles! But he sure did look handsome trying!

Another handsome boy.  This one LOVED the ocean.  


The 'baby' beach boy...not a serious bone in his body! What a face!

Long-time beach buds...Christian and Matt.

Wow!  Two beauties!  Where did our baby girls go?
