Mantra: September 9, 2011

Therapist Mantra: September 9 2011.  My therapist always told me (yes, I was therapized in my life) that I’m like a mother hen, I get my wings spread out and I gather all my little chicks under me to keep them safe.  I don’t like the unknown, I don’t like change, and I certainly don’t …

Details of our Son: November 3, 2010.  After a whirlwind day, yesterday…today promised to be another day of great happenings!  The views of Ethiopia from our van was humbling, sad, glorious and beautiful….all at the same time.

Not for the Faint of Heart: July 14, 2010.  I must caution all of those in the process of adoption or considering adoption. It isn’t for the faint-hearted. There are things that you just can and can not do. One, of which, is put your life on hold for your precious little one. Things that …

Heavy Heart: May 7, 2010.  Today, as I’m looking through blogs on families who have had their “gotcha” days…my heart just aches.
