I am a wife to Trevor and mother of eight sweet girls and three precious little boys. Seven were born into our family, and four came to us through adoption. They are (listed here by request of a faithful reader):
Philippa Violet (Pippa) (2004)
Romilly Alice (2006)
Nikolai Dickson (Niko) (2006, adopted 2012)
Delphinia Mary (Delia) (2006, adopted 2013)
Thaddeus Merit (Teddy) (2006, adopted 2017)
Lewis Christian (2007, adopted 2015)
Beatrix Joanna (2007)
Juniper Lucy (2009)
Coraline Audrey (2011)
Annis Octavia (2014) and
Verity Laine (2016)
I am happily staying at home looking after and homeschooling my little ones and writing this blog to keep myself out of mischief. I am also a Christian, and it is my prayer that my thoughts here would be a blessing to those who read them (at least most of the time!) Thanks for stopping by!
Who Am I? (by Casting Crowns)
Not because of who I am.
But because what of You’ve done.
Not because of what I’ve done.
But because of who You are.
I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow.
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still You hear me when I’m calling,
Lord, You catch me when I’m falling,
And You told me who I am:
I am Yours.
