Come and Gone

Brent’s parents spent their first visit here with us being very busy as there was a lot going on. We had an award ceremony, a college open house, graduation/party, and Mother’s Day.

Day 3 (Brent’s view)

Yesterday was a game changer. For the first time, I felt deep inside me, the desire to adopt a child. As I walked up to church with our group, Jess was holding the hand of one of the girls. As we exited out the entry gate she grabbed my hand as well.… Read the rest
