god's snacks

I thought it might help our chances of finding a birth mother if we had a profile on the internet. It can't hurt right? Well, actually, if I were to truly divulge all my little weird idiosyncrasies I'm pretty sure my chances would be shot.

But these are things I can keep under wraps. Maybe not from you, my readers. They are slowly seeping out into my blog over time, but to a girl who stumbles onto our profile site, unaware, I should look pretty normal.

Here, check it out. Tell me what you think.

Do you think a person could ascertain from our photos that sometimes we stay in our pajamas all day, watch Spongebob and eat junk food? Can you tell that I'm the type of girl that sometimes vacuums naked before I jump in the shower? Do you see the crazy dancer that Ben really is?

If it isn't too much trouble, let's just keep these things between us.
If you know someone considering adoption for their child, send them directly to the profile page. We don't want to scare anybody off right away. They can get in touch with us here:
Okay, on to lighter subjects. Well, not really.

We were sitting in church today and they were preparing to serve the sacrament. Thom excitedly and not quietly said, "Yeah! Snacks!"

So being the reverent mom that I am, I said, "Shush. Not snacks Thom, the sacrament. You are supposed to think of Jesus when you take the sacrament. Now sit up and quit picking your nose."

And he replied, "I know Mom. It's God's snacks. God's snacks Mom."

That put me to thinking. The sacrament kind of is like God's snacks. It is meant to be a respite from our daily life. It is to nourish us spiritually and buoy us up for the week to come. A little something to hold us over. Just a little snack.

From the mouth of babes.

It's a beautiful sight.

By the way, thanks for the laugh, that Sacrament story was too cute. I reminds me of my experiences. Jr. likes to collect the sacrament cups. I had to have a talk with him. Kids are too funny!

We have been there and done that, I so, so, so know what you're feeling. The wondering, wanting, waiting! Our oldest and youngest are adopted. We don't know where the two girls in the middle came from (HA) My tummy is tottally broken but they somehow snuck in there. We waited 7 years for our oldest and 7 years for our youngest. I thought you were going international. If you are looking for a birthmom here as well I will keep my eyes open. God bless and remember that Heavenly Father is in charge, you WILL get your little dolly when she is supposed to be here. (Not always easy to hear, but true)!

Your "double happiness" symbol and theme gave me chills. The site is beautiful and honest and so, absolutely perfect.

I have a friend who adopted a child from China, it was a Very Long Process indeed. Kylie just came to the US this past June to join her family.

Your baby is out there...

and ps. I too clean in the buff before I hop in the shower!....

Actually, the pajama days might win you brownie points. And the vacuuming naked just makes you cool, in a Hollywood look-at-me-all-so-comfortable-with-my-body "good naked" sort of way. You should consider a re-write.
