Our Little Fellow
Oh, this little fellow. This round, rolypoly nugget of a baby boy. He has been all I dreamed of for years and was worth the years of waiting I went through in hopes of experiencing raising a baby for the second time. He has surpassed my expectations and mad...

Acceptance and peace

The Miracle of Birth: Twin lambs

Not just one, but TWO new additions to our farm
