I am a child of God, a wife, mother, administrator and blogger.  Because 8 years ago, my  family of five and I adopted three children from Ethiopia, God has placed a deep compassion for, and the desire to serve, other adoptive families.    We’ve struggled much as my husband and I have sought to navigate the sometimes difficult task of blending our family into something that brings God glory.  I hope that in sharing my struggles, you will find hope in God’s plan for your family as I have, even on the most difficult of days.

You can read about my journey on my other blog Shaken and Filled.

I have created this blog to share the tools God has given me as I have recovered from depression, anxiety and panic attacks.

    My sisters are all pretty smart women, so I’m just going to second what they’ve said. You rock, babe. Keeping revealing the beauty that comes from your pain and difficulty.
