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!

Blackmail...Happy New Year...and Other News

>We had a beautiful New Year's Eve day yesterday. We spent the day from 12:00 to 8:00, closing time at Wild Adventures. We enjoyed time with Grandma and Grandpa Bennett, Aunt Bobbie, my nephew Joshua, my great-nephews Jack and Broadie, Robbie H. and his new baby, all my girls, and the entire Russell family. I can't ever remember a more blessed, peaceful, joy-filled New Year's Eve

And, Robbie H's little baby did this ALL DAY.

Now for the blackmail you've been waiting for. I am apparently not very experienced at criminal behavior. I took a "less than lovely" photo of my favorite former pastor Bobby Russell. I promised that it wouldn't show up on Facebook is he gave me $100 for our adoption. He just laughed. So, now I'm selling it to the highest bidder. Be sure to let the lovely folks at Pineview, and pass the word on to the YCB family. The highest bidder can have it to post themselves. Hehehehehehe
Here's a snip just to see what it might look like.

And....just in time for the New Year! I received an email from 147 Million Orphans today. We will be able to order new shirts next week. I can start taking preorders today. Check out the fundraising tab if you're interested!
