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.

Back from camp!

Well, about a week after getting home from Colombia, David packed his bags again and headed off to camp, leaving us for five days straight.  Boy, was the house ever quiet!  I missed him like crazy, but I knew he was well prepared and all set to have a great time, so I felt good about this experience for him.  He finally came home today, watched a movie and chilled with me, made plans for a friend to come over to play for the night, and now he's fast asleep.  I texted his friend's mom and told her not to rush!  I'm just so glad to have him back home and to know he had an amazing time.  Problem is he came back just a little more grown up again......

Tomorrow we pack our bags yet again to head to Austin for a few days as a family.  God didn't waste any time getting this reattempted adoption underway (that's good because we really have an extremely short time span in order for it all to work), so we're headed to see a psychologist that was recommended to us for this purpose by someone who's had multiple successes with him in regard to adopting older children from Colombia.  So, we are looking forward to some good family time by the pool, seeing some friends, and also exploring a little more of Austin, and we know that our evaluations are in God's hands.  Everything we've been through has had purpose, so this step (or "brick") that we're on must be filled with purpose, as well. While we're gone, our home study paperwork should arrive in the mail, so we'll begin that step of the process as soon as we get home.  Godspeed.
