A little pick-me-up…

I got the SWEETEST little goody basket today from one of the SWEETEST people in my life…Mama Judy! Any of you have those people in your life that are like your other momma? This sweet lady started out as one of my photography clients…but she quickly became a dear friend and I endearingly refer to her […]

That is awesome! What a special lady!

Just prayed for your sweet Mama Judy. Loved this precious post and the reminder that we should do more serving of others. The goodie basket is fabulous. You've got me craving candy corn. Haven't seen that yet in Hong Kong.

That is so sweet to have a person who just wants to do something for you- just because 🙂

What a great halloween treat! I love those mugs, my kiddos would love them. Do you happen to know where Mama Judy got them? Thanks!

Our weekend in Columbia…

Yes, we zipped everyday to the adoption conference in Franklin…but we stayed with our sweet family in Columbia. I’ve been doing online training courses…and needed a little break…a blog that is light and makes me smile… Here is Parker and Laney-Lu playing with cousin Tom. Tom has been Parker’s hero since Parker learned to walk. […]

We are in the same boat. I had a goal of mid-october but things are delayed and so we wait! I am still hoping for end of October but I need to be more realistic. Are you guys hoping for a specific gender? Anyway, good luck – looks like we'll be going through this process together 🙂

The Young Family - October 9, 2009 - 8:06 am

We didn't make a gender preference…completely open here…so we're guessing we'll get a boy b/c that list is shorter. We are just so excited either way! I'm with you…the sooner the better but I know a lot of waiting with the hoop jumping is ahead!

We’re back!

We’re back from a great weekend where we attended the Together for Adoption Conference. It was an amazing weekend!!! Read the highlights here: We also got to stay in Columbia, TN (very close to Franklin where the conference was) with Richard’s family. Can’t wait to post the fun pictures from our weekend! Today is […]

hey there … we were at the conference as well! We live about 30 miles from Franklin…it was amazing … and I saw you peaking into the rooms snapping pictures 🙂

We adopted our son through AGCI and got home June 19th … not sure if you snapped any pics of the nursery, but Silas was in there … blessings on your journey … believe me, it'll be more than you could ever dream of!

Typical us…

My typical girl… My typical boy… And my typical mess… Yes…that black thing in his hand turned out to be a WORM…a dried up, dead one…YUCK….and yes…it made it’s way into his mouth before I could stop him… Doesn’t taste good does it?! A little protein? No worries…a finger sweep and gagging mommy successfully removed […]
