The day I got married, one of my closest friends looked me in the eye and said "God has many wild and wonderful things ahead for you and Jeremy."

Being called mom by 7 kids is definitely wild. Each day I look for the wonder in it all...and give thanks.

Partnering with my husband in life, parenting, work and serving is definitely wonderful. He is my favorite.

Notice anything different?

If you have come by my blog recently you saw some recent posts about our time with the Colombian kids that came to visit for 3 weeks.  Well I had to remove those posts that included pictures because.......

we are....

officially EXPECTING!!

We are very excited (and nervous and cautious and thrilled) to start the adoption process to bring home FOREVER the 4 (yes FOUR) beautiful, wonderful, energetic, unique children that we had the privilege of hosting.

We are swimming in paperwork now, getting used to our new homeschool schedule, and staying very busy with work so little by little, I will share how we got here.....

In the meantime, keep ALL of us in your prayers.


  1. Wow! That's amazing news. Will definitely keep you in our prayers. Much love to you and the whole gang.

  2. OK, as you can tell by my comments, I've spent a restful morning (getting over a flu) catching up on your blog. Now can't wait to see you guys in December! And seriously, you need to keep my email handy for when you bring your kids home because once you launch into forever family (from just visiting family) it's a whole new world of challenges! :) Have you read Sacred Parenting? Put it on your wish list (yeah I saw your books on your nightstand photo & it looks like mine, but you need this book) Love ya!
