Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri

Hesitation vs. Excitement

I've been finding lately that I want to share my joy and excitement about adopting Ivy Xue.  Yet, I'm hesitant because of our experience in May.  Sometimes I feel as if it is wrong for me to be excited about another adoption.  Most people have been very gracious because they know us personally.  There have been others who have not been as gracioius.  One lady actually moaned in a sad way when I mentioned that we were in the process again.  In my heart, God has healed me and has shown me quite a few things these last 6 months.  I cannot help but quote the scripture from Psalm 30:5, "..weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."  Then again in verse 11, "Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou has put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness."  So, I'm throwing off my sackcloth and am going to rejoice about adopting Ivy Xue.
