Latest On The Girls

Dear Ones:

First of all Happy New Year! I hope all your holidays were as wonderful as mine were. For those of you joining us in prayer I wanted to fill you in on the latest:

Birth Mom checked herself in to detox last week. This means we will not have visitation for 3o days except for with the other siblings. The criminal background check came back for Grandma and said she was ineligible because of a crime 12 years ago so my case worker said a judge can decide to overlook that.

Our next court dates are Feb 23 for baby girl and March 23 for Big Sister. Pretty much we are still in a place of total unknown as to what will happen. Sometimes being in a state of expectation is just completely exhausting.

I am believing my God is good and in control no matter how things turn out, but I tell you incredible sadness is a HUGE part of this whole process. I really don't think I can go through this again if the girls leave.

On a happier note my Elijah comes home tomorrow and I seriously can hardly even stand it. I am so excited to see that boy and hear about all the Lord has done. Please pray for the teams safe return.

Thank you for being with us.



  1. Prayers always....

    And I TOTALLY understand your sentiment of 'not being able to do this again' not matter how it works out.

    I have been there.

    My husband decided we would push on...I, ultimately, am glad he owned that decision for our family bebecause it was the right decision...

    But I sure didn't have it in me at the time.

    Hold Tight...


  2. I understand your pain sweet friend. Always, always praying...

    I can't wait to hear about the trip! So glad your boy will be home soon.

  3. I really appreciate and am honored that you listed my work as a photography inspiration on your blog! Thank you for that.

    Sending prayers your way that the adoption goes through soon and that your son is safe in Nicaragua. You have a beautiful family and are taking a lot on! God Bless you & Good Luck!

  4. I have been thinking the same thoughts, friend. We are in the same situation with our foster son that we have had for 13 months. His case will be decided in four months. We have NO idea what will happen...It can be exhausting. CPS asked me to supervise birth moms visit last week. It was awkward. Thinking of you

  5. Praying they can stay. I cannot even imagine all you are feeling right now.


"As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord."

Joshua 24:15
