I am married to this guy.
This is our son, Silas...
We live in Southern California, where Nick is a pastor and I am a part-time teacher and co-owner of Rooted Ink. We love the beach, the mountains, fixing up our house, spending time with family, and dancing. Okay, really it's just me that likes dancing, but I'm counting on Silas to join me on that one someday.
We talked about adoption on our very first date and always knew it was going to be a part of our future family. After trying to get pregnant for a year, we decided to pursue adoption instead of fertility treatment. Adoption was as much a desire of our hearts as pregnancy was, so it was the obvious choice for us. Our journey to Silas was not what we expected, and it was filled with a lot of pain and heartache. Despite all that, God is good, and I wouldn't write our story any differently. Silas is the dreamiest little baby, and we are unbelievably blessed to be his parents. Seriously, look at him!
So, what are you going to find on this blog?
A whole lotta random. I blog about adoption, infertility, my faith, family stuff, house projects, and mostly, Silas.
