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!

  1. Hey Lisa -- welcome to blogging :) We have a blog too (a sadly neglected one, LOL) I used to post on it all the time to keep friends and family updated on our family, but then along came facebook and it seems most of my posting is done there now.
