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.

Voice of Truth, Casting Crowns *lyrics!*

If you want some transparent honesty from me right now, let me just say that to stand in my shoes at this moment is not something I would wish on anyone.  Every day that we wait on a final answer is just another day for Satan to mess with my mind, another day for me to hear all the voices in my head telling me how crazy we were to put ourselves through this again, another day to remind myself that the phone call is coming, the one saying, "I'm sorry.  They still don't think you're "good enough".

Our documents were presented and are being reviewed as I write this entry.  Despite all the voices fighting for attention in my head as we wait for an answer, again, I'm trying my hardest to listen to the only one that matters, the voice of Truth.


  1. I absolutely love that song. And God made you good enough for his amazing plans for your life. Just look at what is behind you! He made you to do all of that!
