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.

Just around the corner

This is the first year since 2010 that I have not been making last minute plans and arrangements to spend the month of June in Colombia.  I have very mixed feelings, which I share in another post at another time.  I miss Julian and Mercedes, but I am thankful to have the chance to recuperate from the last several years.

David is pretty excited about the fact that, rather than head to Colombia the day after school is out, he'll be heading to.....


His first summer camp in Austin, Texas with the "youth group".

Two weeks later, Juan David will be headed off to....

His first summer camp in the U.S., all the way in Colorado!  He's both excited and also a bit anxious, about being away from home, being completely immersed in English, etc.  

I look forward to the experience for both of them.  Two camps is a bit hard on the budget, but it's definitely not as expensive as trying to get back to Colombia this year.
