‘What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men …… That is what love looks like.’ - St. Augustine

They Called! And More Great News

A social worker from DSS finally called about foster care! Of course I didn't get the message until today, so I have to wait until Monday to call back. And of course this call comes right before the start of one of my busiest months of the year! Anyway, I'm happy. I'm really excited to start the training and see what God has in store for us as a family!

And more happy news: My friend J and his partner R have decided they are ready to start a family through adoption! J and I have been friends for 25 years, and he and R have been together for ten. They want to get coffee this week to pick my brain. Where they live is a bit of a trek for me, but a place I love. I'm excited to make an adventure of it with Anastasia. They live almost RIGHT on the ocean in Gloucester, MA. You can see all the fishing boats from there house.

They are going to be wonderful parents!


  1. This is great news! For you and your friends!

  2. Yay! And don't fret about this month, because, unfortunately, this is just the beginning and it will take a long time.

  3. Hi, i've just found your blog today and just wanted to say that you sound like one of the best, kindest understanding mams that i've ever 'met'. I feel humbled by reading you and your daughters experiences. I'll be along this way again very soon xXX

  4. What good news! Can't wait to hear how things go.

  5. WOO HOO!
    Great news! We are in the home stretch on our road to foster/adopt. It has been 3 1/2 months since we started our first class. It is important to remain positive, even though sometimes the end seems SO FAR away.
    You will be terrific, and it is nice to share it with a friend!
