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 […]

Well, I slept probably the best sleep I've slept in a LONG time last night. And I think it was somewhat because I was exhausted after going to a meeting that April didn't show up at and thus had no rights or say so, finding April on a street corner on the way home, taking […]

I say that because I think I had envisioned this smooth process once the way April lives was exposed. But I'm finding that each step takes a bunch of mini-steps and that people don't operate on our time schedules or even in a timely manner at all.  I have to admit it's been a frustrating […]

Well I went up there today and she is doing fairly well. I can tell she is suffering some withdrawal from drugs and walking the street (she's itching and not really making sense and she's going stir crazy)  Social Services got involved today and they were wonderful. We don't know what will happen yet but […]

He's here and seemingly healthy! I got to spend the morning with April and Tash and they seemed to be doing well. April is plum worn out after laboring all night with him. And of course she is pretty sore.  She has a really bad cough that I"m afraid is pneumonia so hopefully the hospital […]

Tash was born at 6 this  morning. 5lbs. 11oz.  April called me last night from a number that I couldn't be reached and so I missed it. I felt terrible when she called this morning to tell me that. But I'm trying to trust God that she needed to do this on her own.  I'm […]

I've been wanting to write about how our Christmas day went. I mentioned before that we had invited the street ladies over for lunch that day. Some of you sent small gifts for them and that was so appreciated. We really didn't know what to expect so we just had plenty of soup and goodies […]

That has really been on my mind this week. I'm inviting some of the prostitutes on my street over for Christmas Dinner. I don't even know if they will come since most of them hate each other. But maybe they will be hungry enough to lay that aside and come. hungry enough for food, for […]

Yep, I still can't believe that's what she wants to name her baby. She came over yesterday and held Zoe for a while and it really was sweet to see her maternal side show and hopefully this precious little thing touched her heart and made her long to care for this baby inside of her.  […]

April came to church with us today. I've been telling her for weeks now that we were having a thanksgiving dinner after church today and that she should come with us. So today before we left I picked up my phone and asked Dan if I should call her (she has a pay per minute […]

she came by today, hungry as a hippo. She ate a bowl of pasta and 3 burritos. I"m learning to just make one thing at a time so that she'll take time to talk and open up to me. She did today. It was almost like she let down this wall for a short time […]

not only my hair has a new look but I thought this sweet blog needed a little change. So what do you think? I'm learning more and more about customizing these things.  April's been stopping by almost every day now that the weather is getting colder. She got really upset the other day when I […]

I love fridays! I know my husband loves them even more. So all in all fridays are good days. It's amazing to me that no matter how tired we are that day at night we have energy to stay up late and hang with friends, watch movies or previously recorded shows. I guess knowing that […]

April stopped by for breakfast sunday morning. We invited her to church but she said no and that she doesn't "do" church. We continued to talk about God and what involvement He has in her life. She thinks he's looking out for her. I asked her if how she was living would please God and […]

April came over yesterday and was starving. So I asked if I could make her lunch and she said yes, so I told her what we had and she wanted mac-n-cheese and salad. So I made her salad and asked her if she wanted french or blue cheese dressing and she said both and that […]

Our meeting with our licensing foster agent went great! She was so great and so easy to talk to. We sat over rice krispie treats and pumpkin spice coffee (millstone has an amazing pumpkin spice blend out now! so great!)  and talked in length about our lives and our past and our heart for children.

For those of you who have prayed or thought about April, the pregnant lady on my street, Thank you. I have seen and talked with her several times since I last posted. She came over and looked through some of my things that I had for Asher (diapers, wipes, formula I had been given, etc…) […]
