Reading thru past blog posts, it is very clear that I have three primary interests . . . . . Children/Family Travel Gardening I lump children and family together, but could also add adoption and foster care into this group. Adoption brought Lili and Naomi into my life.

It was 9 years ago on this day, March 20th, that we anxiously sat in the lobby area of our Guatemala hotel awaiting the arrival of Lili’s foster family. It was this day that they very tearfully handed Lili over to us – her forever family. Two years later, on March 16th, we drove thru the orphanage gatesContinue reading “Anniversary Week”
Hubby wanted us to try Carrot Dogs. Here’s what we thought.
I was going thru some photos today and came across some I had forgotten about. Like these from our trip to California last Spring. I think they are photos taken by my sister. Hard to believe that trip was almost a year ago.

On the way back home we stopped in Missouri again to look at some property we’ve hadContinue reading “Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder”
It was six years ago today that this little girl legally became our daughter. I had often heard that adoption is not for the faint of heart and that was proven to be true for us. We had gone to visit her. We held her in our arms. We watched her play and watched herContinue reading “6 Years Ago”
Lili woke up early this morning, wanting to know if Santa had arrived. She was trying hard to patiently wait for Naomi to wake up, not able to lie still and wanting to talk. None of us knowing exactly when Naomi will finally begin to stir, I asked Lili if she wanted to wake Naomi.Continue reading “Ending Christmas Day”
