My Greatest Expansion

As I contemplate my life there is really one one word that perfectly describes it.  Expanding!  It seems things are always expanding in my life. In 2009 I went from being just a mom to a homeschool mom. I am constantly finding more things that seem to expand; from my role at church to my children's eating habits.

My greatest yet is that in October of 2010 I became an adoptive mother.  In September of 2010 her 17 year old birth mother asked me to take her!  Four weeks later my 8 month old daughter was in my arms. What a rollercoaster that was and still is!  She has filled our lives with joy but it wasn't easy.  She came to us with a lot of anger issues (yes at 8 months), feeding issues, over-medicated, and sleep deprived. I thank God he brought her into our arms when He did.  She has come from being a very cranky, melancholy, unhappy, unhealthy baby to a sweet, giggly, happy, and healthy toddler.

Since this is my first blog, I will keep it short and sweet.  Thanks for reading!
