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.

New Poem

I have no time for writing these days (a busy soccer season tends to do that), but I wrote a poem just before writer's group the other night. It's written to Juan David about his bedroom, which is no longer empty.  Here are a couple excerpts from the poem......


It's as if you've always been here,
or at least were always meant to be.
Yet sometimes I still look your way
and can't believe it's you I see.

I still remember grieving
as if I'd experienced your death.
Now that you're actually here,
It's like you've risen from the dead.


Your room became my meeting room
where God drew me close each day.
Your carpet still holds those tears,
your walls hold all the words I prayed.....

I'll save the rest of the poem for the book, whenever I find time to settle down enough to finish it.
