Happy Anniversary


J and I celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary on February 19. A while back, BE drew us this anniversary picture. Other than the “two years married,” the picture is pretty accurate.

It shows J and me at our wedding, followed by BE and her first mom (she was born just three days later on February 22), then a picture of her being adopted. Sometimes I think her grasp on the situation is very limited, and other times, she seems to understand a lot. Thanks for the anniversary wishes, BE!


I’m making a difference!


So often, I question whether or not I’m making a difference in my kids’ lives. Today, BE made me this picture and it gave me some much-needed encouragement.

The text says, “thank you mom, for your love.”
