As we celebrated Martin Luther King day this week, I have been pondering what this means to so many people, what it will mean to our Abby girl. There is so much prejudice in the world, it’s so unreal. People are judged not only on their color, but how they look, what they do, so many different things.

When I meet someone for the first time, I’m not looking at their color or how they dress. I look to see what is in someone, what is in their heart and soul. Sometimes you can see this outwardly, you just know by seeing them in that instant that they are kind, loving and a good soul.

God made each one of us unique, beautiful and special. Not one of us are the same, how truly amazing is that. There is only one of me, inside and out. Only one of you, you won’t find another one of you, anywhere in this world. When I look in Abbys face I see a beautiful girl, with dark eyes and curly hair. I don’t see her color, even though her coloring is beautiful. From the instant I laid eyes on her I thought how beautiful she is.

She is not my coloring, she is a caramel color, she has white and african american in her family. I think of her, an innocent little child, and I wonder how will she be treated. Being adopted by a white family, living in a majority of a white neighborhood. I hope that she will see her skin and see how beautiful it is and never wish she was white like me.

We are all unique and different, so as a parent of this child, I will teach her it’s what’s inside that counts. You can be the most beautiful person on the outside, wear all the right clothes and look the look but be so ugly inside. It’s the inside that is what a person is.

More to come later!

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Happy New Year!

We had a wonderful time at New Years with my family, almost all of us were gathered together, and those that were not, were greatly missed. My parents were in from Tennessee, we celebrated my dads 80th birthday, so it was a great time being all together. Of course miss Abby, stole the show, like she always seems to do.

This was a difficult Holiday this year for many people that I know, going through hard times during the Holidays can even make things harder. It is an added pressure, family coming in and everyone is supposed to be together. Emotions can run very high also, just trying to get everything done, wrapping, cooking, cleaning and so much more.

We have had our share of challenges and changes at the end of this past year. Seeing our oldest daughter start a new chapter without her husband, finding herself and trying to start over again. Also our youngest daughter has moved out and we were truly devastated.

Life has a way of marching on, moment by moment, and day by day. Before you know it, it has been months. Most days we are ok, happy and joyous but then feelings come in or a situation can make it really difficult. Through the difficult times you really see who your support system is. Family and friends have been so good to us, and God is our constant. Without him, don’t know how we could get through some of these days.

I look at Abby everyday and know how truly blessed we are. Not only has my family, friends, hubby and children been such a support but having Abby makes things so good for me. I have to get up in the morning, feed her, play with her, she depends on me.

Looking forward to new beginnings, memories, joy, laughter and so much more in this new year. We are still waiting for that much awaited call from the agency, we know that we have more love to give and share. Also that even through these hard times, God has put this on our hearts and souls. I can’t think of a better thing to put my hands to. To be a loving wife, mother, and a help to another child, a safe place.

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. James 3:17

More to come!
