- 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.

We've requested a specific date to obtain custody of "Juan" and are awaiting confirmation of the date. Once we get that confirmation, we finally get to purchase our airline tickets, apply for our visas, and make all those final plans, which all have to be done pretty quickly from here on out. Our first two considerations of lodging have fallen through, so we've got some friends in Bogota checking into a few other inexpensive options for us. I'm a bit scattered right now with my mind going in a million directions between finishing the school year (early), enjoying every last moment of fifth grade with David, and getting all these final details to come together for our travel. AHHHH. I'm just so relieved that we are finally getting through this process and heading back to Colombia. Only God knows why it had to take so long, but I trust Him.
