Welcome, from the Glas family!

I decided to start a blog when I reliazed that I was one of the few Moms that did not have one! So, to start off I wanted to introduce my family and tell how we became a family.
Jason and I were childhood friends, started dating in high school, married in college, and love each other more now than ever before. We were and still are Best Friends! In 2003 we decided that we were ready to expand our family by having children. We had everything planned out, but God had differrent plans for us! We rode on the emotional rollar coaster of infertility for 2 years when we decided to pursue children through adoption. The summer of 2005 we learned of 2 babies in Guatemala City, Guatemala that God had chosen to be apart of our family.

Jack Harrison Glas was born May 19, 2005

Harrison was placed in our arms November 9, 2005.

Mary Elizabeth Glas was born June 22, 2005.

Mary Elizabeth was placed in our arms January 9, 2005.

We were a family of four for a year when we felt God calling us to adopt again. We found out about a little girl (3 years old) living in an orphanage in Brazil.

So, we began the paperwork in December 2006 and finally got the call that we could travel to get her July 2007.
Harper Lhais Glas born March 26, 2004

Harper was placed in our arms July 27, 2007.

Our family had to live in Brazil for almost 2 months before we were allowed to bring our sweet little girl home. But it was a time that our family will cherish forever.

Harper (our Brazilian Princess) is turning 4 years old on March 26th. She is extremely tiny, only weighing 19 lbs, but has a BIG personality. She talks constantly and is always happy.

Harrison (our Guatemalan Prince) turns 3 years old in May. He is also a big talker and very smart. He wants to do everything his Daddy does, and thinks he is as big as his Daddy too.

Mary Elizabeth (our Guatemalan Princess) turns 3 years old in June. She is the BOSS of everyone. She tells everyone what to do and they do it or she wrestles them to the ground. However, she is extremely girly. She does not want to do anything that messes up her hair bow.

Jason and I are extremely blessed to have 3 wonderful children, and pray that God will bless us with more (no we are not finished yet!).

I hope that you enjoy this blog and staying up with our very BUSY life here at the Glas House!
