t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


More Thoughts on Eternal Families

You may remember 6 months ago the beautiful story of how Daegen found his way to his Mom and Dad. It was a round about way, but through a series of miracles and direct help from the other side of the veil, Daegen found Brock and Amy. After six months the adoptions is final.

Daegen was sealed to Brock and Amy for time and all eternity in the Logan Temple. Brock and Amy were sealed when they were married in the temple 6 years ago. However, because their baby was not born biologically he needed to sealed to be part of their family. Now as Brock says, Daegen doesn't haven't to be a lonely soul in this life or the next! Hooray for forever families.
Here are a few shots of the children outside the temple.
