{eisley hope} 

this little girl came into the world too early and not quite ready. but we are thankful that she did because turns out she needed our help more than she needed to be in her mama’s womb. 

so we are taking a little break. little eisley has a lot of unknowns right now. brave mama {sarah} and proud auntie {marie} are actually together at this moment…laughing, crying and fighting for eisley hope. 

we covet your prayers, love and thoughts. eisley hope is a fiesty peanut and we already love her so much. 

we have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf.
hebrew 6:19&20

“This crazy kid jumped into the freezing Mediterranean for absolutely no reason except he wanted to be able to say that he had gone swimming in the French Riviera!”

“i love this picture. we told mercy, ‘give dohdoh lovies for a picture’ but she was so focused on giving dohdoh lovies that we could barely get her to look at the camera. these visits do my heart good. addy spent the first three years of her life with dohdoh by her side but mercy has lived overseas since she was six months old. i used to worry that she wouldn’t be as connected as her big sister. but skype, voxer and visits have proved the exact opposite!”


So we might be worse at posting when we are together then when we are apart, ha! Yesterday we played the tourist and wore cameras around our necks and visited a museum. It was a super interesting museum with homes, churches, barns, etc. that have been transported from various villages in Romania here and rebuilt…recreating villages from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries!
