Adoption, Isolation, and Community

This summer, I have had the great privilege of helping to plan and organize a retreat for adoptive/foster mothers in our community.  Over the weekend, I gathered with a group of mothers for an incredible time of fellowship, laughter, tears, prayer, and restoration.  We all went around and told our stories of waiting, longing, loving, […]

Miracle Day: One Year Later

It isn’t difficult to call to mind and heart the feelings I had waking up exactly one year ago today.  Most of the time I can’t even remember how I felt one week ago today, but some days etch themselves into your brain and never fully fade from memory. I woke up that day and […]

OKNO ŻYCIA: The Baby Drop Box Next Door

Yesterday Alex left to to return home to the U.S., and rather than sit home and be bummed about it, Elliott and I spent the afternoon out and about.  We took a tram trip to a big mall on the north side of the city and spent a couple hours browsing around and having lunch […]

An Orphan No More: Elliott’s Gotcha Day!

“Come and see what our God has done, what awesome miracles He performs for His people!” Psalm 66:5   Every day for the last 605 days, a sweet little boy fell asleep at night labeled as an orphan.  Last night, that little boy may have gone to bed an orphan, but he woke up a son. […]

A Typical Day In Poland

7:00 – Good morning!  Elliott usually sleeps about ten hours to the minute, and is almost always up between 7:00-7:15 regardless of what kind of night we’ve had.  Hopefully we have had no night terrors in the night and are all feeling well-rested.  No matter how Elliott slept (or didn’t sleep) he always wakes up […]
