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!

Another...I Get to be the Mama Moment

Yesterday when we came home from school, there had been lots of rain, and our red neck driveway was full of puddles. Ellie asked, "Mama can we play in the puddles?" When my teenagers were younger, I might would have said, "No," but I've learned how quickly they grow up, so my answer was instead, "Why not?" Josie-Tatum, however, did not want to dirty her feet.... She played photographer instead. But...Ellie jumped right in! And, may I remind all of you who've watched your big kids grow up, and miss the pitter patter, or run and splash, of little feet. There are 147 million orphans in the world. You could be the Mama, too! Check out the video and see what you are missing.

I just love Ellie's enthusiasm for life. Happy soon-to-be Mother's day, Robbie.

Way to go, Mama! I absolutely love the fact that she has her water boots(meant to keep feet dry) and is sitting in the water. I laughed out loud at that.

Happy early Mother's Day!

Angel babies!!! :) Way to go, Momma! Being a Momma of Bigs and Littles gives a different perspective on things for me, too! Our big treasures grew way too fast...

Happy Mother's Day, Robbie.
