We have been praying hard lately for an answer to our prayers and God has blessed us. I am currently at a job that is only part time which makes it hard to save for our adoption.
I am so excited I am starting a new job!
This new job is going to be amazing! I am going to be the office manager with a new company that is coming to town. The headquarters is located in Seattle Washington so I get to fly there for 2 weeks for training. Now to find a job that is so flexible and actually cares about family is a true blessing. We have the perfect set up now. The days that I will be working I will have family watching our little one. I love that we have a beautiful and close family and friends to help us. I didn’t want to put our little one into daycare for I wanted my family and friends to enjoy our little blessing and I want to be there for our child. This job is going to allow me to just that. I get to be mommy and enjoy it. I am so happy to have what feels like an up on our crazy roller coaster life!
It is so nice and refreshing to get a new start in life sometimes. I feel this is going to be a good year. It has had its ups and downs and we are only in March but I just feel that this is going to be a good year!
Thank you GOD!!!
One Door Closes.Another Opens
When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go, only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He’ll catch you when you fall, or He’ll teach you how to fly! ‘The power of one sentence! God closes doors no man can open & God opens doors no man can close..
We had a wonderful Valentines this year! We know of this little cabin in McCall that we have rented last Valentines and it is the cutest! It is only $50.00 a night and it is the most amazing small little cabin. It is very cozy and modern. Everything about it is small but very romantic. The cabin has everything you need which makes it so nice. We made our own dinner and saved a bunch of money doing this! We got to bring our dog Newman who had so much in the snow. We also had fun and went to the Gold Fork Hot springs! It is so cool there and the water is so clean and warm. MMMM wish I was there now! Here are some pictures of our weekend.

My cousin Vanessa and her son Kelby came down to be with my aunt Linda since she was able to go home from the hospital yesterday. She is doing good still having some pain and difficulty eating but she is doing well. It was so good to see Vanessa. She has already lost most of her baby weight! She looks amazing! Kelby is an adorable little boy with cheeks that could just be kissed alllllllllll day! They are the softest cheeks ever. He is so adorable. She is such a lucky mom. She is so good with him.

Just the other day, I was informed that I would be a mother,
Yet it isn’t me that will carry the baby, it is another.
The love I feel for this woman is extremely unique;
I don’t even know her and we can’t even speak.
How can I thank her for such a sacrifice?
How can anything I do every suffice?
I hardly know about her feelings or fears,
but I can guess the extent of her tears,
For my eyes flow with tears of my own-
When I think of her with arms empty and alone.
I wish I could convey to her the time I have spent crying,
Knowing that she feels like a part of her is dying.
But what would I say to someone so alone?
How would I gain her trust for this baby she has grown?
I wish I could know what she is going through
So I could help her do what she must do.
Does she know how much she is on my mind?
Does she know that I am truly kind?
Does she know that I love her for the baby-
that she is so faithfully, entrusting to me?
