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.

An unplanned vacation :)

So, school's out. David's back from camp. Juan David's camp is a week away. My husband is still out of work, but our expenses have been covered for the month. What to do?

We hopped in the car and drove to St. Louis to spend a few days with my parents. Juan David had only been to their house once so far, and only to sleep. I want him to have memories like I do (and like David does) of visiting his grandparents.

It turned out to be a fun, inexpensive trip (thanks to my parents for abundantly feeding us). Mike felt rested and renewed after a long six weeks of job-hunting. The boys came back with another bonding experience under their belts. We made good use of our Six Flags season passes, including free parking even there. (FYI: Getting those season passes last October turned out to be one of our wisest purchases for two teenage boys!) In addition to all the fun, I also cherished the extra time with my mom and dad.

Here are some pics of our time there: (Unfortunately, I didn't get a single family pic or any of my parents, either. Oops.)
