It’s been a long time since my last blog post. I didn’t really have a particular reason to stop writing. I guess as I finished up projects around the house, things became more mundane and routine and I didn’t find as much to write about. After a while, I simply got out of the habit. I would periodically think, “I should work on my blog.” But how do you start back after so long?
It’s ironic that my last post before this unplanned sabbatical was entitled “New additions,” since the biggest change to our lives in the last four years is a new addition. In 2017, we became foster parents (yet another reason I didn’t keep up with blogging). Suffice it to say that there is a lot that I cannot talk about from that time, because of privacy issues, but over the course of three years we had a number of children come into our home for various amounts of time. I like to think that our home was a safe haven for them, a place where they were loved even if they couldn’t stay.
But one of them did stay.
Last December, Max officially became part of our family when we adopted him. He’s ten now and like most boys his age, he loves to play outside. He’s bright and talkative and always on the go.
So our newest addition has been the best! We are so thankful that God has chosen us to be his family!
