am a Christ follower striving to become whoever God wants me to be. Its

blessed country. I have 3 siblings and we are adopting another boy from
Ethiopia. (Yay!) I have an older sister and a younger sister and brother
who I have lots of fun with even though they drive me nuts. I live in
Colorado which is a great place to live with beautiful mountains
and awesome rocks and friendly people.
That's me! :)
