can you believe it?
these two precious babies of ours are about to make their grand entrance to our little part of the world. 
this week I feel like I can breathe again.
i feel awake + alive.
this week has started the fulfillment of gods promises. 
he is faithful & good all the time
even when we doubt him
why do we do that?
we know His timing is always perfect.
thank you Lord for reminding me yet again that your plans for us are good!
thought my hubby’s words on the subject were pretty perfect, so I’ll share with you below.
thank you for your words, your PRAYERS, support, love, help, prayers, calls, emails, texts, prayers….
we are so utterly humbled!
from Stevo…..

This whole process has been very hard and there have been ups and downs but Wynne and I both agree that we would not have it any other way because saying YES to God’s plan for our family has led us to 2 amazing creations.  Over 2 years ago Wynne was challenged to pray about adoption now we are about to bring home what God had already planned, we just had to say YES.  My plan for our family look much different before I surrendered my plans for his.  HIS plan is a thousand times better!!!  No doubt about it.  Once Wynne and I got past ourselves this deal took off like a wildfire.  Then all of you hopped on board and we had ourselves a full fledged adoption explosion.
God’s heart for adoption has changed us from top to bottom.  Because he adopted us we have adopted out of the overflow.  It has redefined who we are as children of God and completely changed our perspective on the world wide orphan crisis.  We are not done adopting and caring for orphans…this is just the beginning and what an awesome one at that!!!
Now is the time the embrace all that God has planned for all of us.  Take a leap of faith, be challenged, jump off whatever cliff you are standing on and make a huge splash into the water below.    You all have inspired us with your giving, generosity, selflessness, care, compassion, love, and prayer.  Wynne and I aim to pay all of this forward. Thank you again for all you have done for us to get us to this point.  We would not have lasted a second without all of you.
Thank you for being a part of our story!

Hey, I'm Wynne!

Hi, friend! First, I truly am so giddy that you are here. I want you to know I 100% believe in you and all the ways you are growing towards living a more intentional life. I can’t wait to get to know you and your story, and I genuinely hope you are encouraged from our time together here.

A little about me, I’m a type 7 on the enneagram, a total extrovert + people lover, entrepreneur, connector, storyteller, people gatherer, and passionate wife, mama + friend. I feel most alive when I’m exploring new places and surrounded by people I love. Give me a day in the outdoors disconnected from wifi, and I am a happy girl. I run on oat milk lattes, Jesus, gratitude journaling and kitchen dance parties with my three kids.
Welcome, come on in!

let'e be friends

    I’ve been waiting for this moment for you all! So happy that it is finally here and we are all able to see just how incredibly faithful God has been to his promises. It was just a year ago that I found your blog and now you’re going to bring home not one but TWO babies! I could not be more happy for you!

    And how wonderful that you get to go to them together. I just feel like there’s something there from God. That he wanted you doing it together and not Stephen meeting you there. I know you’ve struggled major lies in the last few weeks so just know how fiercely we’re warring in prayer for you! Praying for safe flights and smooth travels both ways. And especially with those precious two in your arms on the way home!

    So so so excited for you to finally be together as a family should be. PRAISE GOD!!
