These Days

So...these days I mostly just post pictures. There's a reason for that. I am tired. I need all my brain cells for each day & have few left for blog writing or much else creative.

It's been nearly 13 months since we became a new family of five & we have come a loooooong way! Really! But, the truth is we still have a long way to go. 

I keep considering writing in more detail what issues we deal with daily but I just can't. Some Moms do & I appreciate that. Reading their stories helps to encourage me so much! But I just can't seem to let myself cross that line of confidentiality regarding my kids. (If you are a Mom needing encouragement just contact me personally & we'll talk privately.  :) Anyhow, please know that we do need your prayers & encouragement, that we are fighting daily for our precious kids - for their healing, for restoration. Our friends & family's love & hugs have meant A LOT to us! We do need & appreciate you so much! 

On the flip side, (or maybe the crazy side?!) guess what? We are hoping we'll be able to adopt again! Yeah, really! It won't be any time soon - our kids need all of us right now. But maybe in the next few years....?

Yes, it is soooooooooo hard! It is crazy frustrating! It is exhausting! It does break my heart! It does sometimes turn me into a whimpering puddle of goo on the floor! 

But............there's nothing else I'd rather pour out my life into, than the lives of the precious children God brings into my life. 

So, please love on us! We need it! Please pray for us! We need it! Please rejoice with us! We are so thankful we get to be a part of our kids' lives! 

(Does that all make sense?)

We love you (all) and pray for you often.

Have you thought about possibly creating another blog that you don't share your children's names, where you live, etc, etc but that you can be more transparent with the struggles you are facing? Just an idea...
