Moving and change


We've had A LOT going on this past week as we have been preparing for our upcoming move.  I'm  so excited and happy to finally be moving out of the Rio Grande Valley and into our new home in the Hill Country.  We've lived here for over 5 years and have been praying and pondering this move for a few years now.

Loving a child not from your loins



Anyone who ever wondered how much they could love a child who did not spring from their own loins, know this… it is the same. The feeling of love is so profound, it’s incredible and surprising….Because now I know what I have been waiting for. I know exactly why the other processes didn’t work. I know I was supposed to wait for this little girl.
— Nia Vardalos, Instant Mom


When I read Nia Vardalos book, Instant Mom, I was struck when she said, " I know exactly why the other processes didn't work."
This took me back to a very dark time in my life when we were hoping to adopt a second time and I felt more discouraged with the whole adoption process than I had in a very long time.

We made a quick trip to East Texas last weekend to see my parents and celebrate my Dad's birthday.  It's our annual February Bishop birthday bash.  My dad, along with my two brothers (Brian and Brent) and my sis-in-law all have birthdays in February.  Read more here:  https://jennifer-mask.squarespace.com/blog/2015/2/25/b43g52z91r7d4vu7isu6v601hj9wwt







A visit to Pop and Janet's house



While we were in Gilmer last weekend visiting my parents, I took the kids out to see my in-laws, Pop and Janet.  The kids were super excited to see them and to get to hang out at their place for a few hours.  They always have so much fun at Pop and Janet's house.
