Onward and Upwards....

I did it!  I set up my surgery consult.  I'm going to get myself put back together.   This hasn't been an easy decision...  Doing something this big for yourself, this costly, this time consuming... But, I do believe that it will do wonders for how I feel and I'm sure my husband will enjoy it as well.  Ha!  I'm excited, yet very nervous.  The unknown, the pain that is bound to be there... *EEEK!*  But, we'll get through it.

Baby pumpkin has lots of teeth, is very mobile and I think she'll walk soon!  We'll be celebrating her 1st birthday in a few weeks.  Bigger pumpkin is becoming his own little person... speaking more clearly, doing well with therapy, and finding his voice and personality.  Challenges come and we rise to them together.  They are happy, healthy, gaining weight, and look like different little people!  I am so happy that we decided to be foster parents.  We are so blessed.  This has changed all of our lives, in many ways... and the lives of those around us.  It's exciting to see others growing and being inspired. 

My children...  They continue to inspire us as well.  They continue to amaze us with their kindness, adaptability, their love.  We are just so very proud of our little not so little family. 

More later....  I need to start some dinner.  :) 



  1. Glad to see you posting! Yay! And I hope the surgery consultation goes well. Keep me updated, okay?

    Love you guys!

  2. What an inspiring blog--I love the title. I think we could and should all have a Finding_______ blog (substitute your name). What a journey you are on!!

    I wanted to respond to your question about our "got love? adopt." t-shirts. I have several extra colors left over--I can let you know the specifics (color/size) if you are interested. Otherwise, watch my blog we are going to reveal a new shirt and offer all the colors again for Mother's day. (I think it will be around April 1).

    I hope you have an awesome day!

  3. Hi Christina! We only have the original black t-shirt (the one in my blog header picture) in the xl. You can order that one now or all the other color choices should be back up for ordering around April 1.

    Thank you for asking! We have been so thankful for the interest in our fundraising shirts!
