It’s been a long while since I’ve posted! Lots has happened! I’m back in VA with baby boy Aspen and I’m daily trying to quell the sibling rivalry, “Can I hold him next? I only got 2 minutes and he held him for 5 minutes! Why can’t I walk and hold him? I want to(…)
Aspen Grey Mintz has been born!! 7/7/17 at 4:02 am 7lbs, 1oz and 19in long!
My wonderful husband at home, is telling me it’s time for a new update!!! I know there are many friends and family that have been religiously keeping track of all that’s going on! We are so grateful for your care, support and excitement for us in this journey!
Still waiting on that baby to make his entry!!! His (birth and adoptive) mamas are anxiously waiting!! No signs he wants to come anytime soon!
I’ve always hoped to be posting on my blog twice a week and I was really good at that when I first started posting a little over 6 years ago. But life has changed and with it some of my priorities! I’m disappointed I don’t have more time for this blog, but I’m also really(…)
Adoption is our story these days… so here is another update in the process! And… faith meets action!!! It’s one thing to say we believe God leading us in a direction and then it’s a different story when it means we have to actually start paying for things!!! Knowing full well the money may never(…)
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9 A well-known verse I know, but exactly what I need to be reminded of(…)
I don’t know how it can be 2 years. It does seem so long ago, and yet it still seems so recent. As I look around at the toddlers around me who are the same age as you would have been it reminds me even more of what I’m missing. New words, todder running, potty(…)
So many of you dear readers have faithfully walked with us through the last two years of difficult times. I’m so grateful and so humbled and blessed. It’s not easy to hear the hard stories and the tears and the struggles. But you did. And you’ve offered many words of comfort, prayers and endless hugs(…)
Change is always imminent. I like to think things are stable and under control and smooth sailing. But truth be told I’m not in control of any of it and all of it could change in a moment. I’m not advocating that we all should walk around thinking there is a black cloud above waiting(…)
Happy First Birthday Jussi Wow! It’s been a year. How has it gone so quickly and how does it feel so long ago?
It’s been a while. Posting hasn’t been quite as frequent lately!!! Wow! Time flies when business creeps into your life. Friends recently have commented to me on my blog and writing and state things like, “Well, I couldn’t do it. I’m not a writer.” Sorry to disappoint… I’m not a writer either!
When life gets hard, I just want to go inward. I want to build up a thick wall and hide. I don’t want to talk to people, I don’t want to grow relationships, I don’t want to give of myself or my time or my money. I don’t want to serve others, my husband or(…)
This is an old post… that never got posted. I wrote it when I was pregnant with Avi… it’s crazy to think that was about two years ago. When I found it this afternoon I was going to rewrite the whole thing and only keep the recipe. But I wrote it then, and it brought(…)
