Make a Wish revisited

I talked this week to the wonderful people from Make a Wish. I hadn't heard from them since we spoke in November, so I emailed just to see where we were at. I felt bad even emailing, but they were so courteous and great about it. The ship playset Olivia had originally seen online and had a picture of is a little too too pricey, which I figured. :) BUT, they work often with a company that they gave me the website of to see what I/Olivia thought of the ship that they had. It is so great!!! I told them that honestly she will be thrilled with ANYTHING! It is all such a blessing, no matter what! But the ship is so cool! It looks like it has two swings on top, and they have many types of swings to choose from (she wants a baby one for the little kids! :) ), a slide, a ramp, a play area, etc. This is it... (Be sure to click on the Ships link below the pic of the castle.)

Pirate Ship Playhouse

They said that once Olivia decided for sure what she wants on it, etc that it wouldn't take them long to do. Wow! God is good!!! :) A place to play this summer! :) Anyone want to visit??? :)

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
