After a Whirlwind 12 days since we had even heard you existed in your mothers belly we were nervous and giddy to go meet the woman who had given you life and had loved and carried you inside her the past 9 months. What would she be like? We knew we already loved her because […]

We did it. We got Zoe’s ears pierced. She was a champ and you can tell at what point I ditched the camera in order to love on my baby…because tears did come.  But they were short lived and now she loves her twinkles in her ears now! She looks like such a big girl […]

But this was said about something that we had total control over.  Dan was sitting at the computer looking at facebook and stated “my child will never stand in line just […]

I like to say God dropped this sweetheart in our lap!!! It happened SO fast.  It had been a little over 3 months since Asher had been born into heaven’s arms leaving our arms very empty and longing to hold a baby. We had entertained the thought seriously about fostering since we were already licensed, […]

We walked into the Appleby's, both Dan and I a little nervous. Would she show up? Would she cry? How would Zoe act? We were seated and we waited for her while feelings of gratefulness and protectiveness both churned inside our hearts. This woman had given us our daughter. We had visited with her in […]

Everyone always says what a great flyer Zoe is… and she is. But she's flown quite a bit since she was born with me going back and forth from here to Raleigh so much. I'm always surprised (though by now I shouldn't be) how much of a conversation starter she is. I'm serious, EVERYWHERE we […]

Zoe loves her some older kids. She watches them, learns from them, follows them, she loves it. Honestly, it makes me want to adopt children just a little older than her… not just because Zoe would love it, but I think that they would too. I've always loved family dynamics, the older teaching the younger […]
