I began blogging in 2010 to keep family and friends updated about our life in Pittsburgh PA. My little hobby-blog has morphed and changed a lot over the years.
I’m married to the best man I know, Adam. He’s a worship pastor and I’m a stay-at-home/work-at-home/homeschooling mom to Jayda. We adopted Jayda from foster care and he came to us at 2.5 years old, with four hours notice. That was one of the craziest days of our lives.
In September 2015 we were placed with our younger son, Zay. He spent some time in the NICU after being born very premature and came home to us at a little over 1 month old. After fostering Zay for about two years and being told that adoption was the most likely outcome, Zay ended up being reunified with his mom in June 2017. Our family has experienced a great loss and we’ll never be the same since loving and losing our sweet baby Zay.
In 2016 I wrote and published my first book: Dignity and Worth: Seeing the Image of God in Foster Adoption. My book goes into detail about our journey with Jayda and Zay, and the foster-adoption system (although it was written before we knew losing Zay was going to be the outcome). Below are the adoption-related posts I’ve written over the years that some have found helpful for their own journey, by God’s grace.
