Home Again

IMG_3532


As most of you know, we are home!! As in, all 5 of us are now under one roof. I apologize for not posting the last several weeks, but, honestly, we have been busy being a family. :)

I also admit that these last several weeks have left me with a lot of raw emotion I am still working through. When I decided to start writing about Brooklyn and our journey, I made a promise to myself and to God that I would only write when I felt lead to do so. I didn't want this to be contrived or sugar-coated. I didn't want to put on a show or write what I thought people wanted to hear. I wanted to be honest and share what God wanted me to share when He wanted me to share it. (Got all that?!)


So I haven't written. But that is about to change. God revealed a lot to me today, and I am encouraged to share again.

Because it has been a few weeks, there is a lot to tell, so I think I'm going to do a little "mini series" on how God has answered our prayers. Brooklyn is truly a testament to His power.

So stay tuned the next few days for updates on our little rock star and all that God has done because of YOUR prayers.

So good to be home again!

Hi Lisa, Another Lisa here! A friend of mine (Laurie Baker) sent me the link to your blog because she knows I am a reader/writer/blogger/mommy too! (I think she said they know your brother in law...or some family connection!).

Anyway, just wanted to say your family is beautiful and the words and pictures you have shared about your journey with Brooklyn have melted my heart and brought me to tears...Your heart comes through in your writing, which is a beautiful thing.

Look forward to hearing more about your family and your journey and will be praying for you all .

Blessings-- Lisa

No need to apologize for not posting! We all understand.

Your little Brooklyn certainly isn't hurting for love, is she? These photos speak a thousand words.

Also - Wow! You look amazing, mama! Did you really just have a baby? ;)
