We are very excited to announce that we have been matched with our daughter!

Joya Christine

Joya Christine (A.K.A. Mrs. Nesbit) will be in our arms and home with our family where she belongs sometime in the next four to six months.  Even after doing all the paperwork to get here, we already feel that the wait to travel and get her is definitely the hardest part.

Her future medical needs will involve mouth and jaw surgery, but we consider her perfect in every way!


  1. So excited for you, Laurie. Joya is one blessed girl.

    One day soon, I'm sure she'll need to go to Disneyland... (hint hint).

    Love to you all.

  2. She's BEAUTIFUL!!!! So very excited for you! Girls are SOOOOOO much fun!

  3. Praise God!!! Can't wait to see this beautiful story continue to unfold! Love, Jules


About Me

My photo
Messy and wonderful perfectly describes my life as a wife and mom of five. I'm passionate about advocating for orphans by telling their stories and encouraging adoption and orphan care. My schedule is messy and wonderful as I am charged with four sons and one daughter. We love living in our little mountain ski town. We do a little camping, a little skiing, a little hunting, and a lot of laughing and loving. Life is dirty and loud around here but we wouldn't want it any other way. Okay, maybe a little less dirty!
