A few random thoughts for Tuesday

1.  Waiting to see white - I am giddy excited for the Conclave.  I have been lifting up prayers throughout the day today for the Cardinals and the Conclave.  I will be honest, I am still hoping for a long shot  . . .
 . . .but praying that HIS will be done and that all are docile to the Holy Spirit.  The Cardinals have a heavy task and it is our duty, our privilege to lift them up in prayer.

2. The Conclave -  If you want more information on how the conclave works, watch this video . . . it is GREAT.  I love how it truly highlights that this election is guide by the Holy Spirit and how serious the Cardinals take this task.

 


And if you want live streaming of the events in Rome, got to Salt and Light TV!


3. Adoption- My thoughts are swimming here and I feel "knee deep" lately.  When the time is right, I will share more.  But for now, I will share with you a wonderful interview, with my "crush" (it just makes me like him more!)
 


I love his honesty and I truly believe more of us are called to adoption, we just need to open our hearts and our ears to God's calling.

                                                             Happy Tuesday!

40 days as a family of 7 and 20 days to a family of 8

40 days ago, Pete, Joshua and Thomas came home from China.  If you have not seen our video on Facebook, take a minute to watch it here.  I am biased, but I cry watching it. EVERY. SINGLE.TIME.  It, and all the photographs were taken by Nicoleinbold, LLC, an amazingly talented photographer I found through Red Thread Sessions.

Right now, a mini miracle is occurring in our home . . . . both toddlers are napping! So, I am going to attempt to write this post and hit "publish" before either wakes up!

So, let's just get to the details, shall we?

Things are going well.  Thomas is adjusting very well and I seriously cannot imagine life without him.  He has been attaching to me well (and to Pete too, of course) and we have seen improvements in his interactions with strangers over the last month.  He is a super sweet little boy and we all adore him.  His smile melts me, but all of my boys have been able to charm me with a swe…

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

Hope's Birth Story

When it comes to birth stories, most women do not write up, nor do I think they want to read about, scheduled c-sections. But, I want to remember the day and if I do not write it here to publish, it is unlikely that I will sit down for my own sake, and write, so bear with me as I recount the day.

As with most scheduled, repeat c-sections, the date was scheduled months in advanced.  I knew that Hope would arrive on May 3 unless she decided to surprise us and my body would decide to go into labor for the first time ever.  Although I am older and anything is possible, I thought it highly unlikely, so I was not too worried that she would be born any sooner that May 3rd.

The hospital that I deliver at has started something called the "Family Centered C-Section."  If you are having a scheduled, routine, c-section, you can elect to have a family centered c-section.  Basically, they allow you to have some of the experiences that you miss in a c-section that you have in a natural birt…
