Father’s Day Gift Guide

Since my Mother’s Day Gift Guide proved to be helpful to a few people, I decided to do one for Father’s Day. And as with the MD post, I am just about a day late and a dollar short getting it written. The good news is, there are a couple of gift options that will … Continue reading

Birthmother’s Day

On the day before Mother’s Day, many families that have adopted choose to honor  their child’s birthmother.  Lifeline (our adoption agency) has chosen birthmothers to be their monthly ministry focus, which I think is quite fitting for the month we celebrate motherhood. I think birthmothers are too quickly judged for choosing to put their children up for … Continue reading

Big Announcement!

Well, it’s pretty obvious the announcement isn’t that I’m pregnant. Unless you’ve somehow missed that fact because I actually haven’t talked about that at all on here! And sadly I am not here to say we are adopting again. But I sure do hope that is in God’s will for our lives down the road… … Continue reading

On Our Way Again

Good New Year’s afternoon from somewhere on 231! We are in route to Birmingham for EB’s second eye surgery. So far it’s been a gray, rainy drive, and Jeremy has us listening to ESPN radio. Boring.

EB and Mae

We are finally in Birmingham and attempting to get ready for bed, but a certain little girl doesn’t seem very tired. She’s actually quite enjoying exploring our hotel room. Her favorite feature is the full length mirror in the bathroom; she’s very impressed with herself. 🙂 Before I tell you about EB’s surgery, I want … Continue reading


I know I promised an update about EB’s surgery from Jeremy before Monday, but that pretty much didn’t happen. Maybe I’ll try to do that on the drive to Birmingham tomorrow. I am writing tonight however, about another little girl. Our sweet friend Mabry, or Mae as she is most often called, will be having … Continue reading

Happenings in the Adoption World

Hello all! I have several things that I have been meaning to share for a while now (isn’t that always the case with me?) and I will try to make this brief as possible. First, in case you haven’t seen on Facebook or even the news, Alison and Stephen have started a nonprofit called Forever … Continue reading

Last Day

I am sad to report that today is my last day at home with EB. I will be returning to KSE bright and early tomorrow morning and I dread leaving my little girl. I have so enjoyed the last few months that I’ve been able to spend with EB. And being home with Jeremy has … Continue reading
