Sometimes words just aren't enough
A lot has happened since my last post, but I have't felt drawn to this space in a long time. It's not that I haven't had anything to write about; goodness, I could write a novel about all that we have been through in the past few months. But I haven't felt ...

From homeschooling to public school
I have had quite a few people ask me about our school year this year, so I thought I'd give a little update.  As most of you know by now, we had 2 foster children, 7 and 9, come to live with us over the summer. Before they came, we were fully committed to h...

One Step Closer
I don't remember a time in my life where I have cried happy tears and sad tears at the same time.  Today was a big day for us.  Today, our baby boy became legally free for adoption.  When I got the call from the social worker, I cried. When she called a sec...

...and then there were six. {our third foster care experince}
As of yesterday afternoon, we are now a family of 8.  Last week, we got a desperate email from DCF, asking if we would be able to take in a pair of siblings; an emergency placement.  Our first thought was "no way".  We were not looking to take on more kids ...

adoption update
Well, since my last post, quite a bit has happened.  For the past 8 months, DCF has been working to reunite J with his birth family.  It was 8 months of uncertainty about whether he would stay with us or be reunited, but it was also 8 months of loving on th...

"Trust Me"
Everyone knows that the foster care/adoption process is not easy. We knew that going into it. We heard it in our training classes, from our friends, from our family, from our social worker and from strangers. But I can tell you, it's harder than you think. ...

all in.
As we first began going through the steps to become a pre-adoptive home, there were many things about adoption that scared me.  " Are we doing the right thing? Is this going to be too much? Can we afford more kids? Are we crazy?! How will our biological kid...

An update and some Q&A.
Well, it's been nearly two months since my last post so I thought it was time for an update. J turns 3 months old this week. It's crazy to me how quickly he's becoming a baby and not a tiny newborn.  The BEST thing about J right now are his smiles and coos....

Life these days- a hard season.
We have had the babe for almost 4 weeks now. Which I find to be somewhat unbelievable, seeing that the waiting-for-a-placement part of adoption seems to take forever, but now that he's here, time is flying at the speed of light.  Life these days is, well......

The call. {Our second foster care experience}
Of course the call came when we least expected it.  It always seems to work that way.  The call came on Monday. Actually, the email came first.  "Any interest?" was written in the subject line. A 12 day old baby boy. The call came at 3:00.  Our homestudy wa...
