Girl's Day

Tomorrow Olivia and I are having a "girls day." We're dropping Braeden at day care, then she will come with me for my last hour of "teaching" for the year. After that, we have an appointment to get her hair cut... finally. I have really put it off because I'm so nervous about what it will look like, but it's what she wants. Oh well. It'll grow. :) After the hair cut we're meeting up with a friend of mine from high school and her two daughters. We'll show them our (crazy) new house and then the five of us are going to lunch at Ryan's - Olivia's favorite restaurant! After lunch my friend is taking her daughters the rest of the way to visit with friends in Indiana and Olivia and I are going to see The Wild at the movie theater. She likes going to movies, but mostly she LOVES the popcorn!!! She is too funny. I guess it is just not the same out of the microwave at home! After the movie we'll hit a store or two and then head to gymnastics. Braeden will finally be picked up after her gymnastics class. :) Should be lots of fun!

That sounds like a GREAT day with mom! I am curious- how is it that sweet Braeden can be in foster care for over 2 years? Down here it seems they are trying to get these children out as quick as possible. They want them off the state books even if it means putting them on the welfare ones.

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
