BLOGGING...I should have made this my Lenten promise, but I am most ashamed to admit that the teeny tiny Lenten deal that I actually DID promise God I have completely jacked up. I AM however working on it. Today I worked HARD on it and I continue to TRY. ***SIGH*** Do you feel the guilt through your screen...hahaaa. Oh well... Carrying On... I am Back! And here are some Winter/Spring Happenings...In Bits and Pieces -We sold our house ~ We got a contract on January 12, My Birthday! This is so bitter sweet for me. I LOVED our Hudson House but 2 kids later, we outgrew that sweet little house. And it wasn't even little...It just didn't provide the right space for us. We had very little closet space and storage and let's face it, kids have a lot of STUFF and it was time! HOWEVER, that house has been so good to us! As the two of us, we suffered through the HORRIFIC trial of infertility there, and then as a foster family. We had a failed adoption and also returned to Hudson once without Zachary; all the while Hudson provided us a warm, safe place to grieve. BUT then the Taylor Tides turned and Hudson came through for us yet again...as shocked as we were, when we all the sudden we had babies running around abusing it only the way babies, toddlers and eventually preschoolers can. Oh, and let's not forget all of the crap it took from Shaggy. I think Seth (arguably) had to repair/replace the backdoor a total of 5 times along with many other repairs. We miss You Hudson!
I am a wife and daughter, sister and friend. I am a Social Worker, a child advocate, and a foster parent. I would like to think that others see me as open minded and I consider myself to be quite liberal and also a Catholic girl (yes, you can be both). I love watching and playing almost all sports. I love 'game night' with friends, Italian food, red wine and an ice cold beer. Most importantly, after years and years of trying to build my family, I am a MOMMY. We did not take the beaten path to our children however; we were placed on the road(s) less traveled. Our journey was long and complicated. It was the most challenging and the hardest, yet most beautiful experience I have endured. I have an incredibly strong faith in the Lord and know that this is all meant to be. This is our life and our story...and I love every minute of it (most of the time)!
