i guess it's about time to transition this blog into a 'dordal family' blog.  i have always been hesitant about starting a blog and then everything with ella happened and we thought it would be a good way to keep people updated and praying for specifics.  as i have blogged over the past year and a half it has grown on me. i can hear a few friends saying, "yes!  i knew she would be sucked in!"  :) 
i feel like it will be a good way to document the kid's milestones, family happenings, update faraway family, and have something for our family to look back on as a 'journal' of words and pictures.  posts may be few and far between at times, but to know i have this space to 'jot things down' from time to time will be nice.

so here it is:
The Dordal Family
