Life is Good

Today there are many things I know for certain.  Here's the list:

  1. God is so good and we are so incredibly blessed.
  2. I break out in random tears when I think about all that has happened in our lives in the last month.
  3. Jayvan sleeps through our dogs' barks and I am thankful.
  4. Lexi makes some of the best pretend coffee and pizza that I've ever had.
  5. Green Mountain Coconut coffee is delicious.
  6. Jayvan slept for five hours straight last night and it felt like a lot longer.  I am refreshed.
  7. Suitcases don't unpack themselves.
    1. Laundry doesn't fold itself either.
    2. I don't really care about it right now. . . 
  8. My family is amazing and we are so blessed with the outpouring of love we have received.  
  9. My love of babywearing was reaffirmed by my inability to make coffee one-handed.
  10. I'm a crier.  
  11. As of 12:00 am this morning, Jayvan's adoption is no longer a "legal risk."  I stayed up until that time because I couldn't sleep until I saw the clock hit 12:01.  Our revocation period is over and honestly that is probably why I slept better last night.  Praise God from whom all blessing flow!


  1. Such an amazing story! Glad you can relax now. How was the flight home?
