I didn’t mean to take a nearly month-long blogging hiatus. It just sort of happened. Seems to be happening a lot lately.
My heart has been heavy, and my mind has been overwhelmed with things that are going on in my family’s life right now. Historically I have been really open and transparent here, sharing so many intimate details of our lives over the past few years. But I am not at liberty to do that right now, and it makes writing difficult. Maybe one day I will be able to share this part of our story, but since I can’t do that yet, it is hard for me to write at all.
The girls are doing wonderfully. Audrey is just the sweetest baby. She found her feet a couple weeks ago, and loves munching on those little toes! And Bonnie is growing and learning by leaps and bounds. She is a handful, to say the least. She’s my biggest challenge in life so far. I mean that in a good way. She is about 80% potty trained, 80% of the time. Stubborn thing. Dora the Explorer has taught her several Spanish words. She told a man “Gracias” after he held the door for us last week. And a couple days ago I told Bonnie to come on, and she said, “Vamanos , Mommy!” She is something.
A friend of mine (who is preparing for her first IVF cycle) took some photos of us a couple weeks ago, and I can’t believe they turned out as well as they did. We gave her a run for her money!
Andrew is doing well in practice, and every week is a bit busier and better than the one before. God has been so faithful. The past six years have been difficult on so many levels. But at every turn, in every season, God has reminded us that He is bigger. He is bigger than any giant we can ever face. Including the one we are facing now.
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” -Romans 12:12
