Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

It's Official

I'm sorry for all of you moms out there, but it is now official!!!!!!!!!!

I have been "crowned" the best mother in the world. That's what Ellie has declared. She placed the lovely "crown" on my head and said, "Here, Mommy, this is for you, the Best Mommy in the World>" When I laughed, she said, "Because you carry the baby."

So, for the past 9 weeks, and all those days before, when I lugged that baby upstairs and down, everywhere she had to go, she was carried, I have received my reward, and I must say that NO ONE has ever made my day at the end of a crazy day any better than she did. (Yes, I know that was one of the longest run-on sentences in the world, but I'm tired.)

I might also add that, tonight at a Recreation Department ballgame, where I had gone to watch one of my Sunday School Students play, Ellie asked, "Mama, where did I find you?" I decided to play along, imagining that this would be one of those, "You rode on an airplane to come get me, and I rode on a train," stories. Well, she had another idea. She said, "I found you in the monster bushes, and you scared me."
Go figure.

But, just for now, I will enjoy my reign, and I will not be weary in well doing.

So nice to know that you received your reward! So precious! THank you for the email. Just the other day I was wondering what ever happened to you - weird, huh? I will write you soon. Our Jubilee needs to come home NOW! We are at least starting thru the immigration process. Yippee Jesus for that!

stumbled onto your blog...

What a sweet post. Since I am new hear, I don't know the story but would love to know the story behind how your journey to a 4th led you unexpectedly to five! Can you point me in the right direction to read that story?

We are also blessed by the miracle of adoption 3X over. WE brought home our daughters in 06 and then 07.. and now we are days away from traveling to bring home our son!

Thanks for letting me stop in!!
