Hi, Nice to meet you!

hi, nice to meet you!

I am really excited about this new year + this new vision god has give me for this new season of life.

change is happening.

I’m going from being a wife who owned/s her own photography business + also a Noonday Collection ambassador (who traveled to Africa 5 times in a little over a year), to a stay at home momma!


but it’s a really exciting season.  I’m loving being home with my babies.  I’m loving getting to do life with my friends in real life + my bloggy friends.  mommy hood has brought a whole new facet to my relationships.  plus this adoption process has expanded my small world and I am so grateful for the people I’ve met along the way.

I have some really exciting things happening here this year.  and I can’t wait to tell yall what God has laid on my heart to do.  in a few days I’ll share 😉

but before we got started – I just wanted to know who the heck I’m writing to!

I love to write, writing is my therapy + writing is a way for me to document our story.  a treasure my kids + our family will have forever.  a reminder of all Gods done.

so I’d love to know how I can encourage you – I’d love to know what you are passionate about – I’d just love to know who YOU are!

I updated my “about me” section here.  a little bit about me + why I blog + what I blog about.

so now, I told you about me.

your turn…..

[I LOVED the conversation that was going on at my old blog….feel free to join in HERE!]

  • Lisa Jones - Hi Wynne!
    I just came across your blog by accident and really love your story. First, let me tell you that you have a beautiful family. Your babies are gorgeous! I’ve been down the road to infertility and am happy to report that I have the greatest little boy a Mom could ask for me. I’m not a very religous person but I do believe I was made a Mom for a reason. I had finally come to terms with just being the couple with the 2 dogs and then it happened. We lived in Guam for 4 years (my hubby is Navy). We had a friend that was Navy that worked on the island of Palau and was pretty much accepted like a local. With our friend’s help and the help of his Palauan friends we became parents of a beautiful 2 mth old little boy who’s family just had too much to handle and couldn’t take on caring for another child. My son’s name is Brody and he just turned 4 last month. I think that being adoptive parents is really something special and I get almost giddy when I read about other families adopting as I know that kind of happiness. It seems like adoptive parents have a bond with other parents as they know and can empathize the struggles we have all gone through. Really enjoyed this and look forward to seeing more entries.ReplyCancel

    • Wynne - lisa! thank you so much for sharing a little bit about your story here! and your son is so cute! what an amazing story you have – god had that timing worked out perfectly and He knew you would be a momma even when you might have doubted. such a beautiful thing! welcome!ReplyCancel

  • Sadie - Hi! I too just found your blog from Emily’s post! I love reading about adoption! I have been reading all your posts! LOVE reading about Jesus and how he brought your children into your life. I have a friend adopting from Congo right now! I have two bio kids, one boy, one girl. I am happy married, and my husband and I volunteer as youth leaders at our church. We have a heart for young people. I am a lover of Jesus. I am so grateful for what He has done in my life. Fostering is something we want to do, but we need to be financially stable and I have to finish college first. (Yes, 28 and still trying to finish!) You babies are beautiful and I hope to keep seeing more and more posts from you!ReplyCancel

    • Wynne - thanks sadie for your message! nice to meet you! it’s so fun to “meet” people that have similar hearts and passions. I can’t wait to see what god does with your heart and desire to be foster parents! in HIS perfect timing!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah - Hi – I’m Sarah P. & am just about to start my senior year of High School. So I’m a young’un! I’m new to your blog, but in the space of a couple of weeks I’ve already come to love it, your mission & story, & your family. Thank you so much for the visible encouragement to live for God’s way-better-than-my-own plan!ReplyCancel

    • Wynne - sarah! nice to meet you! I love that you are a young girl who’s following along! thank you for your encouragement and best of luck in your senior year!!ReplyCancel

  • Kelly Marie - Hi Wynne,

    I don’t exactly recall how I found your blog. Probably while google searching adoption…. Or linked on someone else’s blog about adoption. I’ve really enjoyed reading, and kind of meandering through. Thank you for sharing your stories, and thank you for your honesty. Your children are so beautiful.

    My name is Kelly and I’m one of those crazy people who sells/gives away most of their belongings and moves to Africa…. well, soon at least. Actually today is two weeks until my flight. I spent three months partnering with the church in East Africa in early 2012 and left my heart behind. I will be living just outside of Arusha Tanzania volunteering at a home for orphaned, abandoned and at risk babies/toddlers. In a sense, it is kind of like a foster home. There are currently 28 precious little boys and girls living there under the age of 3. The overall hope is to reunite the children with extended family (or in some cases their Fathers – if their Mothers passed away), or pursue local adoptions for those with no known family. I know that my life will never be the same.

    I have always felt my calling was to care for young children. God has solidified that call in Tanzania. My heart is to declare the Father’s love, life, destiny and identity into His beautiful little children. To set them on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ in the crucial beginning years of their lives, in hopes of them growing up to impact the world around them.
