one year, looking back. [camp+asher]

One year ago today, we saw the precious faces of the babies that we now know as Camp + Asher.  ONE YEAR ago!  I’ll never forget the day we got their pictures.  It was a hard day too, because it was the day we found out we for sure lost our first referral.  I knew in my heart about 2 weeks earlier that we were going to lose him, but today was the day we officially found out.  But it was also the day we found out about Camp + Asher.  We saw their faces, and we had 24 hours to say yes or no.  We always knew we were getting a boy, but a girl….this was something Stephen had initiated serious prayer for in October.  We weren’t sure we were going to get a girl, and we for sure didn’t think they would be one month apart!  It was a exciting, scary, life changing day to say the least.  We had 24 hours to say “yes” or “no” and after prayer and wise counsel, we said YES!  and although it was a little scary at first, we now can’t even imagine our lives without BOTH of our babies.
I debated so many times if I should post these pictures, but their pictures are too drastic not to.this was the FIRST picture we got of Camp, one year ago today.

this is him now.

First picture of Asher.

her now.

pretty dad gum amazing what the love of a family can do, right?

adoption is not for the super special radial people.  and it’s not ONLY for people who “can’t have their own”.  adoption is gods heart for the orphan.  we are to take care of them.

there are millions of camps + ashers out there that really just need the love of a family.  not someone with a lot of money in the bank, a big house, a big car, and extra time on their hands.  (who has all of that anyway?)  but just simply a family.  someone to love them, hold them, look them in the eye, and be a family to them.

so what about you?
have YOU ever considered adoption?!

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!
