Won’t You Be My Love?

“Don’t excuse yourself by saying, “Look, we didn’t know.” For God understands all hearts, and he sees you. He who guards your soul knows you knew. He will repay all people as their actions deserve.”  Proverbs 24:12


A Cause I Believe In…….and it’s not what you think!!

I <3 Adoption!!

If you’ve seen me, you’ve seen my t-shirt!!

You may have ordered one from me!!  If so, thank you, again!!  🙂

I truly do love adoption!!  It’s my passion, especially now since we are on the brink of getting our Mollie!!!

But, I do love the fact that I was able to birth two children biologically!!

I do not take that for granted.

Thank you Lord for my children, whether I birthed them in my body or my heart!!

We have some very precious friends that this is just not happening for them.

And if you’ve ever had to go through this, you understand, it’s expensive!!

Infertility treatments are not covered by insurance in the state of Indiana.

This is WRONG!!

Again, this is my opinion, if you differ, that’s fine….but this is my blog, so my opinions get posted!!  🙂

Please, if you feel the same way Click here.

It seriously won’t take you but maybe 30 seconds to sign it…..

World Wind of a day!!

You know when you have been looking forward to something for  so long……

You totally feel prepared…..

Then it comes……

And that prepared feeling is gone….!!!

The past 24 hours have been a world-wind of a day!

I’m dead tired right now, but sleep I’m afraid, probably won’t be coming my way for awhile!!  🙂

And you know what?  I’m ok with that!!

Now, ask me that when I have a new toddler at home, my answer may be WILL be completely different!!

As of right now, we have our dates set……yay!!

We have our plane tickets purchased…..yay!!

We have our guide booked for Beijing….yay!!!

We have our return home arrangements made….yay!!

These are some of the things that completely stressed me out!!  But they are arranged!!  Hallelujah!!


Oh. My. Word!!

And today’s post is brought to you by the letters…..



Yep, this is the final step.

We are no longer waiting for anything else from Ch*na.

We are done waiting on anyone else to do anything else.

All of our steps are complete.

Plane tickets are in the process of being purchased as I type this.

3 nights/2 days in Beijing are being planned for sightseeing and getting acclimated to Ch*na time.

In exactly 20 days my daughter will be in my arms for the Very. First. Time.

I can not explain my emotions right now, I think I’m in a state of shock.

This day has been in the works for over a year and a half.

It’s very surreal…..

but in a very great way!!

Happy 4-0 Birthday Jeremy!!

My honey turns 40 today!!

Hard to believe we are leaving our 30’s and entering a new decade!!

He realizes that it’s just a number, but it’s harder for me!!

I struggled turning 30, I can not even imagine what turning 40 will be like!

Of course, if our plans work out for Ch*na like I think they will, we will be leaving from Ch*na and coming home to Indiana on my 40th birthday and due to the time change from there to here, I will get to celebrate it for like 36 hours!!!  Now that’s a way to enter into a new decade of life!!!

But today, it’s all about Jeremy!!

I love you.  You are my best friend.

God knew exactly what he was doing putting us together!

I wish you the Happiest of birthdays and I wish for us another 40+ years!

Happy Birthday Jeremy!!  You truly deserve it!!
