I started this blog at the beginning of our adoption, to chronicle the ups and downs on our journey to two of our family members. I chose the title “Learning Patience,” as we prayed for those two sweet faces on our refrigerator door . . . yet we could only dream of them. Knowing them had to wait, for the paperwork to be done and the fingerprints to be cleared and the right signatures to be put in all the right places. Our adoption took 42 weeks from beginning to end; that is crazy short in adoption terms, yet it seemed an eternity when we were in the midst of it all.
It has been almost three years since we traveled to Ethiopia, and I’m still here blogging . . . and learning patience. I write about about faith, motherhood, marriage, homeschooling, what it takes to run a household, and whatever else I find to type. I keep trying to quit this blog, but it seems there’s always just one more thing I want to record or share.
