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.

Final details

My birth certificate is supposed to be sent out today, then I need to send it back to PA to be apostilled.  I found an express apostille place online that was started by a family after their own adoption of a child from Colombia.  I've been e-mailing the owner back and forth regarding our situation, and today she told me she will be praying that it arrives to her quickly. :)  How encouraging is that--more prayers, and from a perfect stranger!

We're still waiting to know the exact amount of grant money that will be available to us.  Pray that we will know as soon as possible and that it will be enough to at least pay our agency next week.  I'm assuming all will be sent to Colombia early in the week.

Trying to turn everything over to God and claim His peace that passes all understanding.  This has been a true faith-stretching experience.
