Welcome to the family ~Christyn Joy ~
We are so glad you are our daughter ...
We love you so much!!!
Chrissie's adoption day and Bella's re-adopt day ... Christyn and Magdalena are now legal Serbian born sisters, both adopted in the USA .. That means they both will get a Montana birth certificate..
It has taken 17 months and three different lawyers to get CHRISSIE'S ADOPTION DONE...But it was worth it.
Chrissie . ready to go see the judge.

Boy we were surprised when we arrived in Serbia.. What a beautiful country , many many sights to see and all new friends to meet.. We met many new friends and learned many things about their country.. We also learned in therie country there is no age limit on smoking or drinking alcohol.. They all or most of them smoke and they love to drink alcohol.. They love to have fun.
Any how , we stayed in a neat apartment ~ We met Vlado and Svetlana who showed us around the apartment and also Svetlana took me ~Jody~ around town and showed us how to shop and do money transactions.. We were so thankful for that. It really helps when you have friends in the new country to make you feel at ease. We sure enjoyed their company at a special dinner they took us out for. Svetlana and i ~Jody~ had lots to talk about...
We had our Ministry meeting on Nov 10th ,2008 . We were pretty nervous for this. But it went very well. The social workers were very nice .. The best part was when we finally got to go meet our little Bella , and i sure do mean little .. She was 19lbs and she was 41/2 years old. Oh how this momma cried when she got to hold her.. Bella wrapped her arms around my neck ,just like a little monkey and she was not going to let go... That was a good thing ,because this momma was not going to leave her go either...Jasmina and other workers just watched as we got to love on our new daughter.. We are so thankful for all the people that helped us bring our daughter home.. Three years and lots of love does make a difference... Bella can walk and she can say some words. That is if she wants to... Bella is our little teaser , she loves to tease anybody. We are so thankful for the gift of Miss Bella....
Eveyday we would go see her at the orphanage. We would bring diapers and food for her. We brought Pedi- sure and baby food to feed her. We also put her on a bottle so she could be held and cuddled ... We also brought many many fleece blankets that i made for the children. I sure hope they got to use them... We still talk about all the children we got to see .. Oh how i wish we could have brought more children home with us...But we pray they will find families very soon. Because one day longer is to many for these children. I pray for the little blind girl , i sure hope somebody will show her some love. I also pray for many other children that my heart cries for.. We also have got to watch some of the children come home to their forever families.. That sure makes your heart feel great...

This is a side table, or plant stand. I painted it and put ( God Is Good All The Time) on it.
This is an awesome side~table.
This is what our deck looks like most days. Furniture ready to be painted oe for Gary to fix and sand down. We work great as a team. Now to sell a few pieces, that would really help.
Antique buffet or sideboard. This is a very beautiful buffet. It soon will be on our Etsy store. The Campbell's country Store.THIS IS BEFORE IT WAS PAINTED.
This is her after she was giving a few beautiful coats of paint and some Annie Sloan soft wax. Look an see how lovely she looks now. She will be on our Etsy store very soon. You can also check out our Mama Bears Fleece Blankets Store on Etsy.You can also check out our blog stores , the buttons at the right will take you to them.
Gary and I ~Jody~ have been working on some new to us furniture. Some are antiques and some are just really neat upcycled pieces of furntiure. That we have brought back to life with a new face lift..The Vintage shabby chic look , i just love it.
Have a great day!!!
