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.

Look who's turning 40!

So, his birthday is technically tomorrow on Halloween, but since Juan is working tomorrow, we decided to celebrate as a family today, and unbeknownst to Mike, we did a little celebrating on Saturday night, as well. I tried to arrange a little cookout where I could have a few of his friends stop by to surprise him, but he decided against the cookout. So I sent a secret message out to our Life Group letting them know about his birthday and asked them to shower him with cards. I bought a special cake and some ice cream, with some black balloons for decoration, and my friend, Martha, set it all up in our Life Group room for me right before class was getting ready to start.

He was definitely quite surprised!






Then this morning we gave him his gifts, a Cowboys jersey and a picture of his truck that Juan drew and framed for him (sure is nice to have an artist in the family!). Mike absolutely loved both of them.







We all went out for brunch together this morning at a nice little restaurant that Mike and I like to go to, and they are looking forward to watching the Cowboys play later this evening.




It was nice to separate his birthday from Halloween this year. :)
