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.

Together at last

My babies. 

I ordered books from a printer about two weeks ago so I could have them available as soon as possible.  The book order got delayed by a little over a week, so unfortunately the books are not here. However, when I noticed my book was already up on Amazon earlier this week, I ordered myself a copy. Hey, I wanted to make sure I was the first one to get my hands on it! It said it would arrive tomorrow, but thankfully it sat waiting in my mailbox for me by the time I got home today. I am keeping this copy for myself, but the next one I get my hands on is going straight to Julian. 
They sure do make a good pair. :)

I'd like to say that everything launched smoothly today, but alas, it did not all go as planned. Should I have expected differently, considering the nature of the story held within those books? The one main glitch we ran into had to do with a technological issue that prevented my book from being added to the link I attached to absolutely everything I used to launch the book:  all my Pinterest and Canva quotes, all the guest blog posts scheduled far in advance, even my own blog post today with all the quotes on it. 

ABH suggested I change the link to the Amazon link on all the quotes, blogs, etc., for the time being. When I realized how much work that might entail to change it all now and then change it back once it's on the website, I decided to just accept it as another way Satan is trying to work against me. The damage is done, I can't change it, it is what it is. 

First thing this morning, I gave the day over to God. This little glitch didn't surprise Him, and He allowed it. I will just hope that anyone truly interested in the book would have known enough to search on Amazon when they didn't find it attached to the ABH link I provided. 

I am so grateful for the beautiful reviews that are already posted. I believe they speak for themselves. I will post them on another blog post soon. 

(By the way, we touched base with Julian this morning and again this evening for his birthday, and he had a really great day in the company of good friends.)
