Some wish to live within the sound of a chapel bell; I wish to run a rescue mission within a yard of hell. -- C.T. Studd.
Welcome! Have a seat. Can I get you any coffee or tea? I just finished doing laundry, fixing a meal, catching up on emails, and kicking my shoes into the hall closet. My hair is in a messy bun. I just sprayed on some perfume to drown out the smell of baby wipes and formula. Welcome to a little glimpse into my home-- which just happens to be where my heart is. I am so excited that you decided to visit! If you have never met me before, please allow me to introduce myself.
Many people think that because I am not married, I am against marriage. This is certainly not the case. I am fully pro-marriage and often consider myself more of a widow…because I am convinced that my future husband saw how many kids I adopted without him and fell over dead! I am not the type of woman who thinks, “men can hear me roar.” (Although I can belt out Katy Perry's Song ROAR very loudly!) I am completely fine with taking the backseat- just looking out of the window, humming the song on the radio, but I just have had to step it up and be the leader in my household. I freely chose this “not-normal” lifestyle and every day I am thankful for that choice!
So please buckle your seat belts and make sure your coffee lids are on tight! I’ve been known to talk fast, ramble on, take short cuts, and even go down rabbit trails. I firmly believe in backseat drivers, so be prepared to hear from my friends, family, staff, and even my older children on our blog. I have had many argue with me saying that my children’s stories are not mine to tell. Well, I fully agree with you. My children’s stories are their own, which is why on this website you will only read personal accounts from my older children who have self-selected what they want and feel ready to share.
Besides being mommy to the world’s most wonderful children, I am also an avid writer, director, photographer, and drinker of hot tea. It is my greatest joy to celebrate as God rescues the abandoned, abused, neglected, unwanted, dying children of this world and allows me to play a part in blanketing them with his grace.
