Joy Rising

Our family is our whole life. We have been like a puzzle missing it's last piece. We searched, we cried, we became frustrated and we almost gave up. We didn't give up we kept going and today around the world in China we found the final piece to our puzzle. We have our beautiful boy. We are finally Steve and Kate plus two. God has blessed us today and we feel blessed and greatful. Truely joy rising    Kate and Steve

Now here's an instance when I can totally support the new technologies. How wonderful that we in other parts of the U.S. can be in touch with the rest of the family and learn of everyone's varied experiences.

Congratulations, Steve and Kate. This might warrant a NY visit at Easter to meet Matthew in person. He is one lucky little boy!

Love, Aunt Joyce

He is so cute. We're so happy the days have passed and you'll be home in 2 days.
Have a safe flight. We miss you and Olivia and can't wait until Friday!
