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!

Guess What!!! and Guess What!!!

Ellie's meds have kept her dry for the last 24 hours, so tonight she's wearing panti*s for the first time!!! (Complete with Poise pads just in case.) She is a little proud. Can you tell?

Guess what else?
Have you tried guessing yet?

Tonight, when it was time to use the catheter for the last time, Ellie asked, "When can I try to do it myself?" So, I told her she could try, and then I would finish up if it didn't work.

Well my four-year-old inserted her own catheter and proudly proclaimed she was pee-peeing on the potty!

What a difference a day can make in my spirits.
Thank you for all of your prayers!
