HI!! Well I just wanted to say hi and I am a follower of both your blog and your daughter's blog! Your kids are beautiful and I can't wait to see a picture of your newest little one!

Hi, I have been a lurker forever (sorry!)
I love your family and I'm so happy for you that it's growing.

Hi! I am also a lurker. We are in the process of starting the adoption journey so I love reading blogs of fellow adopters to mentor our family along the way =)

I love to read your blog, but I don't have one myself, sorry.

Busted :) I'm a single mom with two youngsters and appear to be interested in the same things you are - kids and adoption! Your kids are slightly older than mine and it's good to get a glimpse of issues that "might be coming" in the future relating to adoption.

You're on my daily blog list to read, Lisa! Love your posts!

Hi, I guess I would be considered a lurker. I have 2 great boys who are 5&7 that I foster/adopted. We are a Christian faimly and hope to add to our faimly again soon. I have also, adopted as a single mom. Enjoy your blog very much. Love hearing how God is bringing children to their forever families.

Hi! I'm from the CongoAdopt boards. My husband and I are trying to find our way through adoption after one healthy boy and two babies not meant for this earth.

Heidi said...

Hi. Another single adoptive mom. Enjoy watching your journey!

Hmm, I used to read you all the time and then had a computer glitch, lost all my favorites (back before I knew about reader), and just rediscovered you today. Yay! Looking forward to catching up :)

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: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

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
