Here was my "interview" with Juan David as we slurped our ice cream shakes, celebrating his first complete month in the United States:
Me: What has been the hardest thing so far?
JD: Speaking (the language)
Me: What has been the easiest thing?
JD: Sleeping (he loves his bed)
Me: What has been the most fun so far?
JD: Hmmmm. Swimming, Biking, Camping.... what else?
Me: What has been the best part so far?
JD: I don't really know. Everything. All of it.
- 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.
