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.

Celebrating 2 years as a family

Yesterday marked two full years since the day we finally got Juan David back. June 13, 2013. Hop on over to my other blog, www.unexpectedtearsbook.blogspot.com, to see a poem I wrote for him back in 2009, hoping he'd join our family very soon. Little did we know the struggle and heartache on the horizon at that moment, still four years before he'd actually join our family.

I told someone the other day that our adoption experience was horrible, one I wouldn't wish on anyone. At the same time, though, God was in it, and for that, I wouldn't trade it for anything.
