Deemed Impossible???

Well little Miss Ruby was partying for 3.5 hours in the night and so I seized the very real opportunity to   spend some time praying and pondering about sharing today. And in the dark of night, with our little miracle squealing and shrieking so flamboyantly that I had to close the window concerned that our…

What Is.

A precious friend of mine has suddenly found herself facing an unexpected trial.    Given the past in this situation, it is logical that she would feel fearful!  Oh how my  heart goes out to her!!   But you know how it is…. it is easier to see the “trees” when we are not in…

Repeat After Me….

The other day the kids started whooping and hollering, “Look Mom!! Look out the window!” I was on the phone but asked the kind person  if they could hang on for one second. With this kind of excitement I knew that whatever it was it had to be dang good!! Oh my. Their enthusisam didn’t…

The Battle Cry

As horrific storms have been ravishing our nation, death tolls rising and grief abounding, I’ve been thinking. Some who stop by our Place have been struggling with the terrible storms, or a tragic medical diagnosis, a sudden job loss, a seemingly immovable and very mountainous situation in your adoption, a financial blow, a relational trauma,…

Steady and Celebrating

Today is the anniversary of  a very important day in my life, personally. I don’t know about you, but rarely do I  know what the date is or at least, rarely do I pay attention to it.   However, each January,  for the last 8 years I have watched the calendar in anticipation of the  10th coming…

Secrets

While the team was here a few days ago, one of the woman had a very clear word.  It wasn’t necessarily something that would be considered a “normal” word.  Yet, it resonated in my heart in a huge way.  I knew God was whispering something.  It kept ringing in my ears…. Within days Almighty God…

A Complete Stranger’s Words

The other day there was something heavy on our hearts.  We didn’t sleep much.  The night passed slowly as I lay awake most of it earnestly praying, every few minutes slipping on the light of my cell to read a few verses in my Bible, pondering the situation and going back to praying some more……

Our Graham Josiah

So very difficult to imagine that 18 years have flown by since I birthed Graham on February 11th, 1995. I was telling Graham the other day how I would stare at him as he nursed… I could not get over how different he looked than Abigail and Emma. Square jaw.  Fair skin.  Light eyes. Blonde…

NOT on MY Watch

Today friends around the world have begun to pray and fast saying,   “Not on My Watch”  in response to the post I wrote two days ago regarding the future of adoption given the recent  decision in Russia to ban all US adoptions.  The situation is extremely serious. We must not take the cavalier attitude that…
