Congratulations to Pigsy who was adopted yesterday! She is an eight-month-old, cute as can be, guinea pig. She liked being petted, but she loved being held. She would let out a high pitched squeal of joy when our volunteers socialized with her. Find out more about our animals in our critter room: .
How blessed are we? How did God place this beautiful child into our home? How did Faith move mountains of waiting for 5 years for another child who we did not know of? For those of you with infertility, pain, the unknowing, know that you are being cared for in the midst of the big unknown. Adoption for us has been the ultimate gift and I honestly can say that I am a better mother to my daughter because of my son❤️ both came to me in two different ways. Both experiences were beautiful in their unique ways. Just like my kiddos are. So here’s to #adoption, putting our sunnie’s on and loving every moment of being family.❤️

We took this photo at the church I grew up in, the church my parents still attend. Quite a while ago, my dad made ceramic tiles of Jesus’s parables for the walkway pillars, placing a couple of them down low at a kids’ eye viewpoint; this one represents the tale of the prodigal son.
Lately, parenting for me has felt a lot like being that father welcoming his son back home, except my son never physically leaves and sometimes it happens repeatedly in a single day. Our story sounds more like this:
-Child, I still love you even when you do that.
-Child, I still love you even when you say that.
-Child, I still love you even when you tell me that.
-Child, I still love you even when you respond like that.
-Child, I still love you even when you react like that.
-Child, I still love you even when you try to push me away like that.
Child, I still love you, I still love you, I still love you.
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back. I still love you, this is still your home, we’re still here, welcome back.
Happy due date baby boy! You coming 3 weeks early (37 wks) was a surprise and a whirlwind but we wouldn't have it any other way! We love watching your smiles as you sleep, you never ever cry, you have reflux and hiccups but take it like a champ, you love to cuddle and laying on our chest is your favorite spot, you are a night owl and are wide awake and ready to party every night until 11pm, your hair will melt anyone's heart, and you have stolen mine and daddy's heart more than you will ever know. It is #nationaladoptionmonth and many of you we have to thank on this incredible journey we took to get here. There were many highs and lows and emotional moments. We truly feel Andy was meant to be in our family and the 4 of us couldn't be happier with our little addition. We plan to add more through adoption and are just so grateful that we have been blessed with this opportunity to be his parents. 💙💙💙 📷: @juniperandsagestudios
4 years ago today we announced we were starting the adoption process. If i could say something to the family in this photo, I’d say “YOU GUYS DON’T EVEN FREAKING KNOW how blessed you’re about to be. God’s going to bust your hearts open like piñatas several times, but that has to happen for those hearts to be put back together in a way that looks more like Jesus. It is going to be harder than you think it will be. And guys, it’s gonna be amazing. Be excited. You don’t even know.”
“When a whole group just comes together and enjoys each other and supports one another, in bad and good. That’s what I think a family is.” - Trayvonte ❤️It’s almost Thanksgiving! Thinking of all of our kiddos coming home for the holidays makes me even more mindful of the sweet kids who don’t have a family. This thoughtful 16 year old needs exactly what we all need...someone to love him, to cheer him on, to be there in the good in bad. That’s family! Sadly over 100,000 kids are in our foster care system right now are going to bed each night wondering if they will ever have that. Let’s get that number to zero! If you want to know more go to @amkidsbelong and @louisianaheartgallery Pray for these children. Search your heart for how you can help! #nationaladoptionmonth#nationaladoptionday#adoption#fostercare

Last week Gigi was flipping through the American Girl Doll Magazine, this weekend she’s casually reading the Tiffany’s catalogue! 🤦🏼♀️ I’m in for it, aren’t I? #sendhelp#girlsgottaste
PS Please notice the neck rolls continuing to dominate and HELLO hair! We’ve finally got some!👱🏼♀️ PSS I think she actually looks like a little doll.
