Together We Make a Family


God sets the lonely in families. – Psalm 68:5a 

My every prayer for the last two years have been leading up to this day. My every fear was that this day would never come. Or that it would come, but it would be the wrong timing, or things handled the wrong way, or it would get put off again and again. But today the judge called it heartwarming, and approved the plan that makes us a family. The family that the Ultimate Judge in heaven has created us to be since we first heard of this little person, long before we knew he would ever come to live with us.

There have been struggles along the way, and I sure this is not the end of struggle as to struggle is to grow and live, but it is end of an season, of a chapter, in the story that I am glad to move forward from and on to the next; but for now, I will praise God for his goodness and impeccable timing, and celebrate that this child is home to stay.



Two and a half – only halfway terrible


Who is this big kid?

The one who is determined to get her choice of cereal in the morning
The one who dances around telling me “mom I ‘rina’ dancing”
The one who speaks non stop – until she knows she might get in trouble and won’t say a word.
The one who decided to potty train on her own schedule…(right in the middle of a busy time period no less)
The one who wears clothes found in the kids section – not the baby section
The one who plays cars in a princess dress
The one who helps put laundry away
The one who wants to go her friends houses to play every day….and gets upset if the answer is not today.
The one who sings in the backseat every time we get into the car…and helps do up her own carseat.
The one who sets up tea parties and and cooks for her babies

Somewhere in the past 6 months my toddler has been left behind for the glimpses of the little girl emerging.
