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.

April 11th-12th

After leaving San Antonio, we arrived in Mexico within less than three hours.  After meeting up with Madai and her husband-to-be at McDonald's to get directions to the hotel from her, we headed to our hotel and rested for the entire afternoon until our friends also arrived later that night.  We held off on dinner and ended up ordering pizzas at ten thirty at night!  I always made Juan David order delivery for me in Colombia because I hate making the order over the phone in Spanish, but I survived.  That pizza was delicious!

Saturday turned out to be a full day in Mexico.  We slept in late, enjoyed an amazing complimentary Mexican breakfast (you can never go wrong with authentic chilaquiles!), walked around for quite a while, shopped at the "bodega" to buy the boys a stash of Mexican candies, sat by the pool for a coffee break, and we even went shopping at the market! We're all stocked up again on our pure vanilla, soccer shirts, and a Mexican shirt for me in my favorite color. 

The wedding started that evening at 7:00.  Madai made such a beautiful, adorable bride.  After the wedding, we proceeded to the reception hall at 9:00.  We sat with our friends from home (who are like family to Madai), and we just had an absolute blast hanging out with them that night.  What a great family!  We love them dearly.  The party likely went till about 3 a.m., but we all left by 1:00 and just crashed.

 

 

Photo: Beautiful indeed.

It will be so fun to share an anniversary (close) with my sweet, sweet friend, Madai.  Love her dearly.
