About Me

My photo

I am a wife, daughter, mother, bilingual teacher, poet, author, women's Bible study teacher, world traveler, orphan advocate, and an adoptive mother.  Our adoption journey has been filled with a lot of hurt and loss, along with even more hope, grace, and healing.  Through it we have experienced more of God than we ever bargained for and have watched Him miraculously redeem our story when we surrendered all the broken pieces to Him.

Getting close!

Okay, so now it's pretty real......two weeks from this moment, we will have been in Bogota for about an hour.  David and I were discussing today everything we're looking forward to.  Of course, seeing Julian tops the list, and then eating at Crepes and Waffles comes in a close second. :)  This year we already know where we're going, we know a lot of the people we'll be seeing, and we already know and love Julian.  All of that anxiety that we had a year ago is now gone, of course.  However, this trip brings with it a whole new set of unknowns that leave me guarding my heart just as much as I did a year ago.  Lots of new possibilities have come up at the last minute that leave me wondering just what God has up His sleeve this time.  I'm thrilled, excited, and terrified all at the same time.

I had a choice as to which age level and English level I would prefer to work with at the school for summer school.  I said that I had experience working with all grade levels, but that I preferred the younger ages and especially the lower English levels.  Today I found out I'll be teaching Pre-K!!!!  This will be a whole new experience, but I definitely will be working with the kids who speak the least amount of English, and that is what I wanted. :)

We haven't heard any specifics on what Mike may be doing, but I assume we'll just play that by ear. Speaking of Mike and ears, he also just went to the doctor today and found out he has an ear infection.  Isn't that a bit odd, you think?  We must have all just gotten a bad cold or something that went straight to our ears.
