Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Psalm 82:3

What if there are children who will suffer somehow because I failed to obey God?
What if my cowardice costs even one child somewhere in the world his or her life?
(excerpt from The Hole in Our Gospel)

Wishing I were that ball

I think the title of the post speaks for itself.

Kyle is home safe and sound. Slept a LOT since his very late arrival Wed. night. I think I would too if I were up for 51 hours with only short naps totaling 4 hours. He wasn't even grumpy or anything! What a trooper he was.

Dad-to-be will post something soon. He had to go back to work today (sadly, his job doesn't stop just because he is trying to adopt a little boy, dang it!) and who knows how long it'll be before he gets caught up.

Here's a little known fact. One year ago TODAY this blog started. I can honestly tell you that I never dreamed it would turn into an adoption story...but then again, we stopped family planning 13 years ago. Happy first birthday, :o) Goofy, I know...but today is a special day for our family :o)

And happy birthday to Hailey - 11 years today.
Love to you, from Dad.


  1. Happy B'day to Hailey! and Happy Adoption day for Miranda Joy!
    Can't wait to celebrate with you on your son's homecoming!
    Love, Robin

  2. You cheated. You were make a post of your own...about your trip...not add something sweet to the bottom of mine!
