Book and Blogs



Fasten Your Sweet Belt In 2010, my daughter and I wrote this little book that has helped many people on their journey of receiving older children.  I wrote it out of frustration that I knew so little when we brought home three older kids from Uganda.  It’s a collection of stories, mostly of my mistakes.

Since that time, Agnes and I have spoken widely on this subject, and she has launched her own ministry of writing, speaking and mission trips.  You can learn more about her journey at Jeremiah 29:11 Ministries.

Watch Here for TV about the book:

 “Adoptive Mom Paves Way for Others”



Matthew 18:5  I began blogging in 2008 when God stole my heart for the orphan.  I named my blog for the scripture “Whoever welcomes a little child welcomes me” ~ Matthew 18:5  I will never forget the first time I read this verse.  It literally gripped my soul.  If we welcome a child, we welcome Jesus himself. After I read these words, I understood that Jesus waits in the waiting child.

Some of my favorite posts are:

  • About loss and waiting in adoption:  My Bad Mood
  • About how God completely broke our pride by making us BROKE and then rebuilt us how HE wanted us to be:  50 And Broke
  • About how we learned to be faithful and God gave us a “free” son!  The Free Gift
