3 Truths to Remember When People Love Us Imperfectly

Monday, May 20, 2024 No comments

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about how easy it is to demand perfection from others - even in the ways they show us love. If something is done imperfectly, I notice. This happens, in part, because my struggle with OCD can cause me to be ultra-particular. However, I also recognize that a much larger part of the problem is my love of control, my selfishness, and my failure to show grace to others. 

Recognize this struggle in yourself? Here are 3 truths to remember when people love you imperfectly, and why you should accept imperfect love!

Adoption Update: We Adopted a Baby!!!!!!

Friday, July 28, 2023 No comments
We are so very excited to announce that we have adopted a baby!!!

Actually, "baby" C is a toddler. We are thrilled to have baby C with us. We had said we would accept a child up to two years old, but honestly, we were expecting a newborn. So when we got a call about our baby, we were surprised that they were a bit older. However, this child is the exact child God had for us, and we are thrilled that they are with us now. We love them a whole stinkin' lot and we cannot wait to tell you more. 

We had 6 days notice about our little cutie. We went from planning trips as two married folks without kids to "Holy cow, we're getting a toddler" in 6 days. And let me tell you, THAT is a whirlwind of emotions, if you were wondering 😉😅

We are so thrilled to have baby C with us, and we cannot wait to share more about them, but because of our agencies policies, we are not allowed to share anything about them yet online. 

However, we can show you a picture of the nursery, and we can announce that we have adopted, so that is the purpose of this post.

Also, we wanted to take a minute to thank every single one of you who have supported us through this adoption journey. There were many moments of the process that were discouraging, but because so many people came along side us to donate money, pray for us, and offer encouraging words to us, our spirits were lifted again and again. If you fall into any of those categories, THANK YOU. We are so appreciative and thankful.
