the most surreal weekend

I know I’ve deviated from my usual posts on diy projects, recipes, devotionals, and such…and been a bit consumed with this past weekend’s BolderBoulder 10k. And you know what??? We won.

I leave tonight!

Wow, what a way to wake up this morning! I heard Ben typing away on his laptop around 2am, then still at 4am…then I felt a nudge and hug as I was groggily trying to figure out what was going on. “You’re going tonight”, he excitedly whispered in my ear. “WHAT??” I bolted up. “The […]

meeting abreham

{note} during the adoption process, we’d been given MANY spellings to Abreham’s name. At the time, above is how it was on all the paperwork. So though it’s now officially ‘Abreham’…I kept the above title. And no, I didn’t misspell my son’s name ; ) This was THE most exciting morning! Aberhem was waiting for […]

our big {{BIG}} news!!!

What do you do when God tells you to do something that takes you completely and totally out of your comfort zone? Ignore Him? …or have faith & trust. We have chosen the latter. This is Aberhem, our son. Well, it’s Ezekiel’s rendering of him since we’re not yet allowed to show you photos {cute, […]

A Different Kind of Mothers Day

Mothers Day looks a little different when you have kids that didn’t come from your tummy. It’s interesting how few people recognize that. Even the pastor at church on Sunday simply recognized those who had mothers alive…and those whose who’d passed away. That makes it seem so clean and simple, doesn’t it? But what about […]

Dear Imani, “She is yours.” That is what the Judge told us about a half hour ago! Imani Anderson, you are ours. I only wish we got to bring you home this trip. Meeting you yesterday was completely surreal. There was a bit of miscommunication so we only got to meet you for about 10 […]
