i just wanted to brag on my daughters fishing skills and to show you all a pic of the little girl that changed mine and angie's life. we were childless after 12 years of marriage and had all but given up hope. erica is a 10yr old little girl that started walking to church on sundays. we all became friends. she was from a home that was in turmoil and was not being treated and reared like a child should be. my wife had said a few times to me "wouldnt it be great if they would just let erica come stay with us". me and my cynical self said "honey, people dont give away children". let me tell you all something, God answers prayer. this past october, erica was allowed to live with us, and december, we sued for permanet custody and won. so many things fell into place, so many things that each one could be called a miracle. we are so blessed. i just wanted to share a little of our story with you all. and this year, when you see me on the river......erica will be right there. she is my new partner.
