Ours Forever

God blessed the road that led us to you.

We have so much to share, but wanted to wait until Anika became officially ours! Now that our daughter no longer belongs to the State of Florida, we can share her incredible journey, and how God used cancer to lead her to us! Tonight is one of the best nights of our lives. All four of our children are finally forever home sweet home with us. Praise God!!!!

UPDATE: This post existed for a short time and then I had to take it down or else. I am reposting it because i took the time to write it and well, some of you come everyday to the site and it will give you something new to read. doug 6.4.09 @ 11:23pm

I think Angela has been paranoid about posting lately. Having a foster child placed in your house by the state makes you double think all your actions. We have been pretty paranoid about putting info out there about Anika for fear of it coming back to bite us. Not that we do bad things, just paranoid as we had 3 different state agencies involved in our lives for the past several months.


No more fears. We officially have a new 62 pound bundle of baby…umm, 4 year old. She became a Powell at 10:12 am today, so now we can talk all about her without fear.

We can also drag her all over the country without having to get a court order from a judge. Just in time for Girlcation which starts Friday afternoon. The 3 ladies of the house will be traveling to south Georgia where the girls will stay with Grandmama and Grandaddy for a couple days while Angela heads to Atlanta.

That also means 2 weeks of mancation here at the house. The boys and I have a huge list of manly things to do while our females are gone.

Bowen has requested pizza everyday and once for breakfast
Mason wants sushi
I am trying to figure out which kind of sushi goes best on top of pizza…
When on my master cleanse diet I had a craving for bacon wrapped sushi. Raw fish and cooked bacon of course.

Very inspirational story. Love what you have because there is someone out there that has more difficulties than you. God never gives you more than He can handle.

This is an amazing video showing a father’s love for his son.

I know this has been out there for a while, but it is that good.

This is the actual story.
