It's been a while

I apologize to all of you who follow my blog. I reasoned in my mind that noone was really reading this and I am not sure what to say anyway. Well, I was wrong. I had felt like I should be keeping up with it but never decided to start back and then I saw a friend today who confirmed the decision to begin again. Thanks, Janelle!
I have recently been made aware of some very harsh discipline that happened at the creche where the kids were. Knowing about this explains some of the behavioral issues we were having and still do, on occassion. Of course, taking a child out of the only environment he/she has ever known and throwing them into a new culture, temperature, language, textures, etc. is reason enough for a child to have difficulty adjusting. I am so thankful that Kenson and Jesi seem to being doing so well. They are precious and we are truly blessed to love them.
What some of you may not know, is that I am 5 months pregnant. This came as a shock at first but a wonderful blessing. I had asked all the children at one time if they wanted another child and everyone said "YES". Jesi would tell me often that she wanted another baby. Each time she said it, I would say in response, "Well, you will just after to pray about that one." Sure enough she did . . . in the grocery cart, at home, in the car, at night. Her prayer was answered and I found out I was pregnant shortly after she started asking. The only dissappointment came when we found out we were having a boy and all the kids really wanted a girl. Kenson is still holding out that there will be two. . . ummm, no!
Happy Mother's Day to all of you who have the God given privilege to carry this title!

Congrats on the new baby! Would you mind emailing me and letting me know which orphanage your kids were at? My son just came home after the earthquake in Haiti and he was at Creche de L'enFant de Jesus. Just wondering if your kids were at the same orphanage. Thank you!

Hi Julie, I don't know your email address but I did look up your blog. Our kids came from the same creche. In fact, I recognize Elliot.
My email is if you would like to talk further.

Yeah! Glad you started writing again! :-) My Mom was just asking about you this morning. I pray for you often, both for your pregnancy and for the adjustment you've been making for the past several months. And now, just think, you get to add another one to this mix! :-)
