Finding my delight in the journey of adoption.


Katie is through court! Hooray! We haven’t seen the documents yet, but our agency says they have the first set with the rest to hopefully follow next week. Praise God.

We so need these updates. I feel like I am at the point of total and complete desperation before each one. It’s like God takes me as far as He can without me completely losing it (DH probably thinks that I’m way beyond losing it), and then He gives the grace. It sometimes feels like a cruel process, but I am choosing joy (thanks Kay Warren) and trusting that God is preparing me for something even bigger. I have a feeling that I will continue to be pressed beyond my limits for the rest of my life.

Come on I600 approvals!

    And for the record: Bringing us to the point of desperation, is in an effort to defeat future desperation.

    As we witness our Father caring for our hearts over and over and over again — one day — we find ourselves in the midst of intense trial — able to smile through our tears — knowing that He is on His way.

    This is James 1:2 in the flesh!

    Your faith is producing patience!

    Your own children will soon grow in this way toward you.

    Love you dearly.

  3. Hi there 🙂 First of all I am so excited for your Paperwork update– that is worth celebrating. Second, I am super jealous you got to go to the Summit. I was able to listen to a little bit of it online. 3rd of all – you are doing the 7: challenge?! How did I miss this? I just noticed this tweet. I am currently on month 3 — and getting rid of a ton of stuff. It is amazing..

    • Loving the 7 fast! We are on month 4 (media), and it is hard! I’m desperately missing my blogs, but I’ve had a lot of down time. The peace and quiet is quite nice.
