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!

Ellie and the Young Author Go to Nashville

Nashville, GA, that is.....

Stan's cousin got married this weekend, and we had a wonderful time at the wedding. Ellie and the young author attended. (You'll have to wait until the end of the post to meet the author.) We saw family, of course, and some friends we haven't visited with in a while. The reception was at a lovely place called Shadow Oak Plantation. How many weddings have you attended alongside zebra, gazelle, emu, and longhorned cattle? We also ate some of the best wedding food we've ever tasted.

Didn't my girls look lovely?






I have a family shot I plan to put in my header at the end of week.

The girls had fun dancing with their daddy.


And the young author is.......
JOSIE-TATUM


Our elementary school takes part in a young author's competition in the state of Georgia. Josie-Tatum entered a story about titled, "My Gotcha Day." Her story won for her classroom, then for the entire kindergarten in our school where there are 10 kindergarten classes, and finally has won for the kindergarten in our system. Now the story moves on to regional, district, and state competition. Whisper a little prayer that her story can bring attention to beautiful families created through adoption!
