New(s)

  

This was yesterday. The end of a very bumpy year. I cannot express how happy I am that it is summer break!!!

This past school year I started a new job. It is a physically taxing job, but it gives me much more time with my family. I am looking forward to lots of pool time and watermelon!

If you follow my blog, you know I have been playing around with my diet. I probably won’t be posting much more about that. A mostly Paleo diet is where I have landed. Lots of vegetables. Moderate fruits. Some meat. Light on the grains. Some great resources for this way of eating are: Paleo Leap, Amy Myers, and the Paleo Mom. The Wheat Belly cookbook is great for some quick meals, it does include dairy. Also, there is My Paleo Pal app, where people post their meals and exercise. Like Pinterest for Paleo. 
The reason I won’t be posting much more about my diet is that I will be posting about adoption again. We are in the process of adopting a baby girl from Poland!

We are still pretty early in the process. The first home study visit is under our belts. Also, hubs is in paperwork mode. He will probably blog about that soon. My task for today is to complete a biography for our home study. You see I am blogging instead. Paperwork makes my brain shut off. 

We will be selling some things (probably on Etsy). So be watching for that if you would like to support us on our journey. Last adoption, we really did not blog/talk much about adoption costs. It is a costly thing. Adoption drains your time, resources, and emotions. It will stretch you, mold you, and change you. More about that to come. 

My favorite verse right now: “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. (‭John‬ ‭14‬:‭18‬ ESV)

It was true for our boys. It is true for our baby girl. It is true for me. 

Have you ever felt abandoned, unwanted, or forgotten? God is here.
