Having someone to love is FAMILY. Having somewhere to go is HOME. Having both is a BLESSING.

Our New Addition!


Nevaeh came to live with us when she was 2 1/2 months old. She is the sweetest little girl and our gift from Heaven. Just in case you have not figured it out yet, Nevaeh's name is the word heaven spelled backwards. This is her given name. Since she has Hispanic heritage from one of her parents, we took the spanish word "regalo" and added that to what we call her. "Regalo" means "Gift." So our addition to Nevaeh's name while she lives with us means "Heaven's Gift." Those who know Mark best know that the kings English is challenging enough for his Pennsylvania Dutch influenced mind. Listening to his attempt at rolling his "r" was immensely amusing and so "regalo" was given an American English version. "Re" is pronounced "ray." We are sooooooo in love with Nevaeh and thank God for her presence in our lives! And don't let the boys fool you for one minute. They absolutely adore her!!!

Finally! Up, Up & Away For Real!

Our able pilot, Randy, flew us to our destination with great ease.

As you can see, Mark enjoyed the trip immensely!

Laura is ready to scoot down in for a nap on the ride home.

These are our friends, Rich & Carrie. They celebrated their anniversary and their celebration was the cause of our air trip! It was so awesome to share in this occasion!!
