My kids are giving me a hard time that I have not posted on this blog since last Christmas. One might say we have fallen off the face of the earth.
The truth is, I am not sure that there are many people out there reading this, as I originally intended this blog to be a living scrapbook off our adoption story and our lives after we became a family of eight.
Since last Christmas, a lot has happened in our family. But much of it was very hard to work through and not really blog worthy.
Now that we are on the other side of some of the "awful" I can say that God continues to be faithful and is definitely in the business of forgiveness, redemption and restoration. Each day is a step of grace and faith that God is on the throne and madly in love with each one of us.
If you are reading this and are wondering what we have been going through... I might write about it later. But for today... please keep our family in your prayers. As always, God knows what's up and will hear your prayers and move in response to them. Please know that any prayers lifted up on our behalf are pure gold to us. Thank you.
Because it has been an eon since I wrote I'll try to do a short update on the kiddos.
Sweet Pea: She is our newest High Schooler. She had an amazing time volunteering this summer at an event that raises money for Ultrasound Machines for Crisis Pregnancy Centers. She has also become a mother's helper to a sweet family at our church. She is maturing beautifully every day and is showing a deep desire to serve God in all she does.
Our time is filled with homeschooling, practicing law, college courses, facilitating parenting classes, swim lessons, piano practice, date nights, Bible quizzing, Boy Scouts, AWANA, etc. But our greatest pursuit is to know God more each day.
