Mom and Dad had gone to visit some dear friends of the family who lived a ways away. So I was a little surprised she was calling me when the phone rang and it was her. I could hear the excitement in her voice from the start, as she began to tell me about this […]

We drove south for about 2 hours and just when we were in the middle of seemingly nowhere, we saw it… lots and lots of buildings surrounded by fences and barbed wire loops. We found the one where Jack's mom was at and pulled up. This was a totally new experience for us, we had […]

I've been wanting to share on here some of my mind's thoughts this past week but just haven't had the time or the words to put it in. So when I found myself being able to put it into sentences for a dear friend today I thought that it pretty much summed up the past […]

Well, I think this baby was more premature than everyone thought. I think the Doctors said that they thought that he might have been about 6 weeks premature. So that being said, he is still in the hospital learning how to be a newborn. We don't have much more information than that and I'm learning […]

I haven't even met this baby yet and already he fills my thoughts. But then I can't think about him too much because I'm trying to fit three weeks of work into this one week. And so in a way it's good that I'm occupied… but I'm also a stress ball. I think hours of […]

Last month God brought my parents together with some long time family friends for a sweet time of fellowship. During that time they found out that their granddaughter was about to give birth to a baby boy and needed a home for him because of some choices she had made and she was serving time […]
