Via @hillaryfroning ・・・ As I type this caption huge tears roll down my face to share with you our family has become a family of 4!!! The last 7 months have been beyond a struggle, as we have had 3 failed adoptions. I've hit rock bottom many of times, only to be picked up again. But just like lakelyn, he is worth all the tears, heartbreak and waiting. I would go through all the suffering again just so God could bring my babies into our arms in miraculous ways! That's exactly what they both are, Miracles! I will never take one second for granted or the privilege and honor of being my two sweet babies mama! I can't believe that God has handpicked the two most precious babies in the world for us! US! I've learned to always trust in His plan, His timing, again, it's always better than mine. I want to thank ALL of you for your prayers along our journey! As soon as we met our SON Rich said he wanted him to share his name. My heart melted even more.

February 20th.. Such a joyous day for our little family! Lakelyns Adoption day, (2015) the day she officially became a Froning! We had a little breakfast with family and friends this morning. We don't want today to be a party but more of a day to rejoice in God's goodness, grace, mercy and promises! We are so thankful to call this sweet girl our daughter! My heart is a little fuller of praise today! #adoptionday #gotchaday #lakelynann #mydreamcometrue #feb20 #mygreatestgift
The new member of the Froning family is Richard Lyle Froning III “Trice” and he was born April 25. The happy mother says “He’s just a little feller but we have the technology to make him larger, stronger and faster”.
This was a stressful and difficult way for the couple because Rich and Hillary had a few setbacks over the past before this adoption, but God rewarded them after all the tears, heartbreak and waiting. This way took seven long months. But now the Froning’s family getting bigger and bigger and after all of that, the Froning’s are a family of four.
One time Hillary said they want to have a big family and we hope this is not the last adoption in the Froning’s family.
