Late Night Ponderings
3 December 2014 0
Can’t sleep. Probably because I had two naps today, one right before dinner. And my sleeping is all messed up since we tried to stop my meds and I guess I’m still waiting for everything to settle again? I’m trying not to stress about the long day tomorrow, or my hubby going away this weekend or […]

This post has been on my heart for a while, but it has been so difficult to write because I know most people either know this, don't want to or don't care. But this conviction has been heavy on my heart, because something so wonderful cannot be kept to myself. So I hope if you're one of those that think this is lame, untrue or can't be bothered reading, you will just spare a couple of minutes to hear me out, just this once.

A Blessing in Disguise
Liya
A Blessing in Disguise
29 August 2014 0
Everyone knows the peculiar comments we get from strangers and friends alike. One particular comment that stands out for me, especially because it's said so often, is people telling me how blessed Liya is to have us. Honestly, most of the time we forget Liya is adopted. She is so much ours, that adoption has simply become a formality.

Your Adoption Questions… Answered!
7 August 2014 0
I get asked so many questions about Liya and her adoption. Wherever I go, whatever I do, people are so interested. Sometimes they ask questions or make statements which they clearly haven’t thought through. And what is the right thing to ask, anyway? People are just interested. When we first adopted, I just wanted to blend in […]

Liya’s 2nd Birthday
2 August 2014 1
Today, our little angel turned 2, and we celebrated her birthday at Let’s Meat in Lonehill, with family and friends. She has been in our lives for just over a year, meaning we’ve been parents for just over a year (We survived! She survived!). We celebrated our first Mother’s and Father’s Day this year and learnt a […]

My husband and I created this website in 2009 soon after we got engaged. We used as a wedding website, where people could find info on our upcoming wedding and RSVP to it. Soon after we were married, I began using it as a personal blog and I would write now on then on all sorts of […]

Tomorrow Bryan and I leave for our 3rd trip to Mozambique with a team of people from our church. It’s just before 9pm and Bryan is FAST asleep (how does he do that??) and just 2 hours ago, we dropped Liya off at very good friends of ours. And for the first time I feel […]

I’m No Instant-Mom

“Growing up” is such a phenomenal experience: it’s slow but we’re aware of it, yet it still sneaks up on us. I, of course, have been ‘growing up’ for the last 27 years, every decade being WAY different to the last. However, today really made me realise how different I am, compared to how I assumed I would be […]

I have been wanting to share this post for a while – and although I am taking control of a problem I have had for so long, I still have a long way to go. However, in just the last couple of weeks, every time I share my story, I feel like someone can relate […]
