This morning in my quiet time, I was reading in the book of Psalms and this verse really stuck out for me:
“I remember the days of long ago; I meditate on all your works and consider what your hands have done.” Psalm 143:5

A post of a thousand words begins with a single keystroke.
I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting my blog. I’ve been meaning to write this post for quite some time. I’ve been desperate to sit down and share so many things with you. The problem is that I have so many words swimming around in my head and . . . → Read More: Why we won’t be adopting…a revelation
I just have to stop for a moment and wish our previous foster son a very Happy Birthday!! I can’t believe that it’s been an entire year since he was born, and only one week shy of a year since I first held him in my arms. He came into our lives when he was 7 . . . → Read More: Happy Birthday Little Bear!
I probably shouldn’t admit this in public, but I haven’t done laundry in a week and a half! I re-use my after-shower towel for a few days before I wash it since I’m clean when I use it and I hang it up to dry.

Tomorrow will be 2 weeks since Little Bear left our home. 2 weeks since I’ve heard his sweet laugh or seen his sweet smile. I miss him terribly. The crib is still set up in his old room and I find myself avoiding going in that room unless I have to. Sometimes I find my mind . . . → Read More: Reflecting on Little Bear – 2 weeks later

Our sweet Little Bear left us last Thursday. It was time. CPS made it abundantly clear that he was not going to be available for adoption anytime in the foreseeable future. We are moving in just a . . . → Read More: He gives and takes away
Soon someone else will become the new foster parents of our Little Bear. This little boy that we’ve raised for all of his almost-9 months will soon be a blessing to another family. He was never meant to stay with us, even though I let myself believe otherwise for so long. God has a bigger plan . . . → Read More: The Middle Mom
A couple nights ago, I wrote this:
Tonight I have peace. God’s peace. I’ve spent the last hour looking through pictures of our previous foster kids. Of the day they arrived in our home. Seeing them grow and learn. A video of a 2.5 year old completing her first puzzle and saying “Mommy I did . . . → Read More: He knows your name!
I gave Hubby a card recently that said that. I thought it was perfect for this new Army adventure we are going on. We are in the last 90 days before we will be moving, but we don’t know yet where we are going.
The same applies to our foster baby. God knows his future, even . . . → Read More: God doesn’t lead you anywhere He hasn’t already been
