MOST RECENT

I did not realize it then, but this trip to Rwanda back in 2011 would forever change my view of the world and my heart for the world. It was a trip I was unable to forget. The most beautiful memory being the kindness and overwhelming joy of the communities and people there in Africa. There was overwhelming hospitality at every corner, even with no financial status to show off within the hospitality. It was the purest and most powerful form of giving I have ever witnessed. And yet, we also saw real need. Not need as in I need to fit into a certain social status need, but true life/death need. It dug deep into my heart and hasn’t let go. It has since grown. And while Africa has SO many things it in fact doesn’t need. And while it is NOT our job to come in and “fix” things the American way (Which is really not fixing anything at all- there are far more things that we can learn from Africa than I believe they can learn from us), I do believe in simply listening to the call of the Father upon the Fatherless. And Burundi specifically is just one of those places where unfortunately there are a lot of children who are in need of parents. They are quite thriving in so many aspects I am sure, but within the aspect of family, they are suffering. And because of this, we feel called to sacrifice all that we have, so that even one child might be able to have a family to grow up in. And with this being said, we do believe that the BEST option for these children is finding a home within Africa, within their own culture and heritage and traditions. Yes we believe wholeheartedly in that, but we also know that realistically there are still more in need. And rather than spending their life in an orphanage we want to say “we are here. We are far from perfect. We know this is going to be hard for you too, in fact much harder for you, but if you want us, we are here”. This is our calling, this is what we are saying yes to, and this is where our roots for this shop began. *Ps. This is NOT our future child, this is a beautiful child we met in Rwanda in 2011. And secondly, how handsome is my man Josh in this picture?! 😍 goodness I am blessed!

@realdonaldtrump declared today as the official National Sanctity of Life Day. Even though our family celebrates this every day, we need to make something clear. We are #conservative, American, and #prolife; but we’re also pro QUALITY of life- and so are you. When you go to bed, do you hope tomorrow is even better than today? Or do you secretly crawl in bed and think “today absolutely blew and I hope tomorrow is even worse!” Do you hope tomorrow is more productive, more safe, more positive and happier? Or the complete opposite? Of course not- because you too are pro-quality of life. This means that if an unborn child cannot be guaranteed the utmost quality of life imaginable with his or her birth family, that they should be placed where they can, in fact, flourish and experience that. It means if the child cannot be given the proper care and love that he or she needs, they should be given a chance at it with someone else. Adoption is always an option- and it’s my life mission to make it easier, more attainable, and less of a financial burden for an adoptive family who genuinely believes in the pro quality of life for God’s precious children. If you or someone you know if struggling to #chooselife today, please contact me. This parent can be given every resource they need to parent their child, or they can choose the option to place them with a family who can. Not all hope is lost. There’s not a situation imaginable that doesn’t have its own potential for quality. For you. For me. For them. For equality. For life- where it matters the most. #realequality #adoption #adoptionrocks #adoptionjourney #adoptionislove #adoptionjourney #lovemadethisfamily #nationalsanctityoflifeday

Sooooooo....little hiccup in my original plan due to the psych eval. Homestudy agency confirmed I do need it before my homestudy so this is the plan. I get paid the end of each month.
End of January = Training and Police Clearance
End of February = Coordinating Agency Registration
Early April (Hoping the first week of April because I'm off work) = Psych Eval
End of April = First Homestudy Fee and Medical Clearance
End of May = Flight to Ontario (might be switched with April depending on ticket prices)
End of June = Second Homestudy Fee
End of July and After = Saving like mad to come up with dossier fee as soon as possible!

Stretched. Uncomfortable. Unknown. ill-equipped. Messy.
This was my day today. Stretched beyond what was comfortable for me. I was thrust into the unknown with control left behind me and fear and the feeling of being way in over my head in front of me. It was messy, there were tears and I had to call on my peers for support. But you know what, at the end of the day I can say it was worth it. Because ultimately I was forced to move towards Jesus, I was forced to move towards community and move towards open hands to the Father. And isn’t this the gospel? It is not wrapped up in having the perfect life, or even the safe or known or secure life. It is wrapped up in each and every day moving in towards others, bringing in the grace of Jesus when the world says turn and run. It is being ok with differences, in opinion in taste, in lifestyle, in culture, in health, in beauty and fashion and so much more and saying despite it all I am choosing to move towards the hard, to move towards the uncomfortable, to say I’m sorry when we are wrong and to listen when we want to prove our worth through our words instead. And in this we can say, not thy will Lord, but your will be done in my life. And as we fall into the arms of Jesus, into the arms of community, may we be able to see the beauty that lies within the fog, within the messy, within the broken. For life was never about being the perfect one, life is about spreading the gospel of the one who sets us free and choosing to move towards the One who has our best interest at heart and letting that be enough. #writingfromthebroken #freedominsurrender

It's only 48 hours until the @adoptionfundraiserauction begins! Swipe left to see the sign we have contributed that will be up for grabs, & go to @adoptionfundraiserauction to see all of the other amazing items that will be auctioned off to help raise funds for The Reddick family { @swallowsgrace } to adopt their 2nd baby ❤️.

There's another new post on the blog today! I'm still playing some catch up with my monthly letters to future baby: today's is from September. September of 2017 was a pretty insane month for those of us in the southeast, because September was the month that Hurricane Irma blew through. It was difficult to even think about a baby coming into our lives when we were quite panicked about our house, our families, and more. I'd love it if you hopped over to the blog to give it a read (direct link is in my profile)!⠀
