My foster son is so very smart. He's also a six-year old boy. Which means he says and does gross things and he almost never stops moving.

I… Continue reading Chasing Dreams – Chasing Hope
I used to think, when I was a little girl, that some Prince Charming type (he, of course, loved football, Jesus, and politics) would stride into my life, sweep me off my feet, and then? We would live happy-ish forever, with our house full of kids, somewhere near Washington, D.C. (my dreams are very specific).… Continue reading Prince Charming and Happy-ish Ever After
