The Little Things

I love being a mom. Even more I LOVE being Lucas's mom. It was a very very hard wait, but the blessing of Lucas in our family was worth it.

Each milestone or memory means so much. We are just soaking up all the little things.

Had to share one example: yesterday was my birthday and Lucas's amazing sitter helped him make this fingerprint pendant for me (Wow...thank you so much C!!!).

I love it! Receiving something made by MY SON is the most incredible thing ever! Sometimes I feel like I'm dreaming.

At the same time, so many friends are still waiting for the blessing of a child. Please keep them in your prayers, especially this time of year. With all the focus on little ones, Christmas can be an especially lonely time for those hoping for children.

Waiting in Joy - Happy Gaudete Sunday!

We are waiting to adopt again and need your help to spread the word. We made cards with our information on to share with friends and family, leave at church or a coffee shop, or tape to your fridge. Cards like these helped bring our sweet son into our family. If you can help us spread the word, please email us at and we will mail you some cards!

Also, happy Gaudete "Rejoice" Sunday!!! Today is one of my favorite days of Advent. As a little girl I loved lighting the pink (officially "rose") candle of the Advent wreath, and getting ready for my birthday (which is just around the corner).

This year we have so much to be joyful for. What an incredible blessing to celebrate Advent and Christmas with our precious little boy!!!

Here are some pics of our Christmas fun so far! God is good.

Happy St. Nick's
