- 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.

Home sweet home
Nearly five years to the day of meeting him (July 20, 2008), we brought our son, Juan David Alspaugh, home today. We moved out of our apartment on Sunday and stayed with a friend for our last few days, so I didn't have access to my blog. I will write more about those final days in Colombia after I've had a bit more time to rest and recover from the trip. However, I wanted to at least write a short post to share that he is finally here, after all these years. Words cannot express how happy I am to be home. My bubble bath felt more luxurious than ever before, and it felt good to be back in my own kitchen, my own laundry room, my own bedroom, and with all of furry children-and of course, with my husband. I sure did miss him!!!!!
