Thank you so much for all of your prayers!

Yesterday while I was at a workshop all day, a friend went to pick up Percy to take him to the vet for us.  When she arrived, he was RUNNING around and playing!  So glad!  So we canceled his appointment.

This morning Liam was a rock star!  He did SO WELL!  He laid on the bed while we waited for him to be taken back, and even took a short nap (we had to be there EARLY).  No crying when he went in or came out.  And he was back to himself right away, not even groggy!  We hung out this afternoon and watched a couple movies, while I also got done with some laundry, painting a chair for my bedroom (have I mentioned I am in the midst of a bedroom makeover for myself?  It's been a long time coming!), doing dishes, and putting some things up for sale on FB.

This afternoon we took Olivia to the doctor to have her leg checked out, and he gave us the thumbs up!  It's healing well and he sees no sign of it becoming an abscess like she had the last time!  Bonus!

On a side note, I just uploaded some pictures I hadn't gotten around to before.  This is Braeden's habitat project he completed last weekend and turned in on Monday.  He did the Tundra and focused on the polar bear, earning himself a 12 out of 12 points!  Way to go Braeden!

And finally... still waiting on two other people to finish their paperwork which I need to complete my application for the Haiti program and mail everything in!  Grrrrrrr!  I am not good at waiting on others, especially when I know this is a long enough process on its own without taking extra time unnecessarily. :(  Hopefully they will be in soon and my process will be on it's way once again!

So glad all is well... now on for some MUCH needed REST this weekend!  Of course, we have some planned activities already, but I'm looking forward to some good family time!

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
