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.

World Cup Fever

We've got a little World Cup Fever going on around here.  These games have kind of dominated our time, but it's been fun and quite entertaining.  We decided to go for three teams from the beginning, so we've made it a point to watch all of their games.  USA, Colombia, and Mexico.  As of this moment, all of them are still in! 

Yesterday Colombia played an amazing game, securing their spot in the quarter-finals.  According to Juan David, they have never made it this far before, so we're pretty psyched.  It's funny watching the games because we watch them simultaneously via facebook with all of our other friends who are either Colombian, live in Colombia, have adopted from Colombia, or are currently in Colombia finalizing their adoption.  One posted a video from her apartment in Bogota after Colombia scored a goal.  You could hear cheers and horns honking all over the city.  The entire country is celebrating!

I found some red, blue, and yellow paint in the closet, and Juan David's face just lit up.  He ran to the bathroom and started painting away.  Here's what it looked like in our house during the game. (I'm learning just how passionate Colombians are about soccer).
