The Great Divorce

In case you haven't noticed, I haven't blogged much lately.

In case your wondering why, I'm going to tell you.

This blog was started as an adoption blog. The majority of the readers that I have (maybe I better say had) read because of the topic adoption.

Particularly Uganda adoption.

Well in case you haven't noticed, I'm no longer in the adoption process.

My children have been home a year.

When I look at them, I see my children. Not the children I adopted

When they are naughty, I see my children sinning. Not possible effects from being orphans.

When they succeed I see the joy of of being a mommy to children who work hard to accomplish hard things. Not children who have to overcome, because of hard beginnings.

We will not be adopting again...a least not any time in the near future. Lack of income prevents us from qualifying for visas. We are of course open for that to change...but as it stands it will not be happening.

With all this in mind, I still feel like I can't post here unless it is somehow linked to adoption. As a result many lovely posts, get left in the cold.

I don't like that.

So I think a new blog provider is in order. I have wanted to divorce the current one for quite some time. It is far too hard on the children to hear me screaming from the other room, every time blogger and I have a disagreement over it's lack of effort in providing me with spaces, along with many other irreconcilable differences. It is too hard on me listening to them erupt with laughter over my frustrations. I must leave and find a better more suitable means for sharing my thoughts.

I am currently trying to decide which service to go with.

Leaning toward one in particular, as it will better serve our needs for the business plan in the works.

Stay tuned for a new address.

That is if you want to still follow.

I might still talk about adoption.

Plus I still have the cute kids,

biting sarcasm,

a witty sense of humor,

and most importantly a deep love for my Savior.

It Must Be Confusing to Be a Kid

Apparently Noah and Kaleb were very excited to get to share the good news of visas to William and Marissa. They let them know that the Dodson's had received their visas and could now go get their friends and bring them home. Fantastic news!

Fast forward to today.

William just asked me, "So mama the Dodson's got their pizzas?"

I wonder if he has been thinking the last 24 or so hours, "Man we have pizza once a week, what's up with the Dodson's not being able to get it?" I'm also wondering if it all makes sense to him because we ate pizza in London, so surly you must need pizza in order to come to America.
