D.C. Traffic, if anything, you are consistent. No matter what time we leave NJ, you are always there. πŸ™„

The good news is the kids slept and I caught up on lots of incredible RF trainings. All day in the car means time for dreaming big for this year and #Teamgivehope. ❀️

This year it's about Thomas #pertheusual and Black Panther. Tyson loves Black Panther because he was born in Africa just like him. 😍❀️

We also said goodbye to our NJ cousins tonight. 😭😭😭 It was a fun 2 1/2 weeks with them. Next stop: Tennessee. #4amdeparture .

I tried to keep a calm face all morning, as my son kept asking me to touch tarantulas, snakes, and hissing cockroaches. 😰 I touched everything while screaming on the inside. .

Hypervigilence is always a part of his day. Because trauma stinks (and yes, a lot of it happens in the womb), and it can make little brains process the world differently. .

He doesn't miss a thing. Someone walking up to the house, a new item in the kitchen, a change in schedule... he's on alert and needs answers about it asap. Hypervigilence means his brain rarely is at rest. He's is constantly in self-protection mode, fighting the need for fight or flight. .

Have I mentioned trauma stinks? .

Yesterday, he sat by himself for almost an hour building a sand castle. He wasn't looking around, concerned about who was walking by. He was at peace. .
.

We pray for more of those moments for our son. .

Eighteen years and fifteen trips together (that we could remember) post college and we always pick up right where we left off. College roomies with four VERY distinct personalities that made living together an "adventure" and getting together later in a life a necessity. We are missing our fourth wheel, Erica, this weekend, but grateful for time away together. And PS, we are officially the worst at selfies. πŸ™„πŸ€£

Looks like her mama. Acts like her daddy. #nofear #lotsofbruises #gapteeth #harrisgenegamestrong

I grew up going to Disney every few years and have such fond memories from my time there together with my family. Brian and I started dreaming about taking our crew to Disney a while ago, and this week we bought our tickets for the Word Herd to go this October. πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰
.
.
.
My R+F income from last month enabled us to cover the entire cost of tickets for everyone, in addition to paying our monthly grocery bill (which keeps growing because all my children eat like teenage boys, #includingthetwoyearold), plus our normal giving to a family in the adoption process. .
.
.

This business is a tremendous gift to us. And yes, I WORK to make it grow. But when I tell you it fits between raising little ones, packing up a house, moving, unpacking a house, remodeling, and taking a month long cross-country trip, I mean it. .
.
.

There will always be reasons why this wouldn't work in your life, but I can show you why it's worth it to push past them and give this a try. .

Let's talk. .
