My Life Song


It’s been around 4 months since I walked off that plane with our 5th baby in my arms and into what I now call my little “tribe” There is something different this time about having added to our family once again. OUR 5th, much like adding the 3rd, and the 4th threw me for a loop for a bit. It’s more than just divide and conquer around here. Life has become more colorful, louder, funnier, and crazier.  I laugh at...

So according to my blog I haven’t left for china yet. Hehe. I really really had the best intensions s to blog while I was in china but between juggling everything myself this time ( Nicole, my 11 year old was the only one traveling with me) and the over all crazy of the internet the entire time we were there it made it nearly impossible. I did not  have much “internet” time once I did finally get a good connection so...

4 days till travel ya’ll! Yikes! So I wanted to update everyone ( I have some new followers yay!) on what it actually looks like for our 15 days in china. Why two weeks? Well thats about as short as you can get it. The first week is spent in Ridge’s home town province city. When you adopt from China you have to travel to their province that child lives in, and the adoption must take place in the provincial city. This means...

I feel so blessed to have this gift! click below to see the...

This picture above was a year ago TODAY! cannot believe it. In some ways it has flown by, but in others it felt like we would never get here. *(I am just going to give you a disclaimer to you if you read “adoption blogs” We adoptive parents are a hot mess ya’ll. When I started this blog over 4 years ago I wanted to be as transparent as I could about the ups and downs of the adoption process. At that time we had no...

Ever feel like your over your head? Like “Lord how am I suppose to get it all done?!” ( insert emoji with her arms up) The song below accurately describes how I have been feeling lately. Really since the beginning of this newest adoption. THIS process is different, for many reasons but one being that it doesn’t make sense. Not on paper, not to the world, and if I am being honest some days not even to me. Then I look...
