Boy Mom Blog Hop!
Hi there! Welcome to my little piece of the web! If you are visiting from the MOB Society’s Boy Mom Blog Hop, I’m so glad you stopped by! First, introductions…
This is my first boy and the love of my life…
I know you can’t really see him in the picture well, but it pretty much sums him up. Outdoorsy, fun loving, adventurous. That’s him.
We were married in 2005 and honestly, we have had a rollercoaster of an almost 7 years. But God buckled us in and we are enjoying the ride despite the curves, loopty-loops and scary flips.
Our first child, Ethan, is 5 years old. I don’t even have words to express what a blessing he is in our lives (and the lives of others!). We are definitely blessed.
We also have two children, Shyla Joy and Jakin Isaac, that were born into the arms of Jesus (Shyla in 2009 and Jakin in 2010). You can read more about our whole family on the “Our Story” tab at the top of the page or by clicking on the photos of their little hands in the right side bar.
There is one more little boy who came into our lives through adoption. We were his parents for 6 days and he still has a very big place in our hearts. As does his birth mom and siblings. (You can read more about our sweet Samuel by clicking on his photo).
We are also currently waiting for a referral to adopt from South Korea.
This blog is used to chronicle our adoption journey, homeschooling Ethan (we will start Kindergarten in just a couple of weeks!), family happenings and the occasional recipe or craft. I also blog here about our grief journey. I began blogging there almost three years ago after the loss of our daughter and found such love and support from people I had never met that I just continued blogging!
I am an adoption advocate and adoption social worker that works writing home studies and post placement reports. I love seeing forever families united. I also work as Client Services Director for our local Pregnancy Resource Center two days a week.
I hope you grab a cuppa joe and take some time to get to know our family a bit. Basically, we love Jesus, we are stronger for what we have gone through together, we enjoying learning together and we like to have a little fun!
I’m so looking forward to “meeting” all the boy moms in the blog hop!
