All because two people fell in love...

We met in February 1989, started dating in May, and got married in September. And Josh came *almost* 11 months later, just in case y'all were wondering. And then no more came. We waited, and waited, and then Lauren decided to make her debut in May 1995 (5 weeks early), and then Kayley 1997, Jacob 1998, Krissy 2001, Lindsey 2004 & Joey 2006. We lived in Texas until 2005, and then we moved to Arkansas, just about 25 miles north of Texarkana, Texas. Fortunately all my children are Texans (and my handsome husband) because Texans are just cool. Wish I was a Texan... but husband had to settle with a California gal, which I think is pretty cool too.

Back in October 2008, Brett & Cindy found out about a very special little girl in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries caused by her parents. Brett got an emergency hearing for her, and they were granted custody of her. After many set-backs, they were finally able to adopted Mariela April 30, 2010 in Bell County, Tx. On June 12, 2010 they took her to the Dallas LDS Temple to have her sealed to them, and us! It was a very special day for a very special girl!

We love you Mariela Abigail Pritchard!
