Is Love Enough?

It’s been almost a year. Looking back I wonder how we got here. I remember a friend telling me in the midst of my pain it will take a year. How long that felt at the time, when all I wanted was to feel normal again. To have the pain of loss and grief to be lifted. […]

Will you trust?

They come to us in different ways. Some through long drawn out labor, some through an orphanage across the world, others from the DSHS office.

Cabin Fever

Hey friend, How are you? I hope you have had a chance to get some sun in today. It was beautiful outside. I think I have hit a record in my life this week. I haven’t left our house for six days, except to walk and get the mail, so if this post sounds a little loopy […]
