Near and far.Next to and not as close. Yet no matter where they land or who the grow to become–one thing remains. They’re family. Family by birth.Family by marriage.Family by numbers added in the smallest, biggest bundle of joy. Through life, through change, through things that year by year remain the same. They’re family.Now.Always.Each day […]

No matter age or time or distance–No matter separation or space or span. No matter the change of season–Or change in the world. No matter the familiar, planned or unknown. No matter the achieving or attaining, the executing or accomplishing. No matter at all.Forever family they’ll be.

Four precious eyes of two precious girls always watching.Looking to their mom, to their dad.Every day observing their words, modeling their actions. And it’s in those everyday, ordinary moments they’ll learn love. They’ll learn the selfless acts and humility it takes to care for a family.They’ll learn grace and strength and daily rhythms. While watching […]

It was easy to see from the moment we met–they let love fill the spaces. The way their daughter blossomed in their presence.

Six heartbeats and a dog beside.A family in, together and with.This is sure. A little bit of silly.A whole lot of love.This is sure. Growing up and rooting down.Belonging and becoming.This is sure.

There were two. Two in love. Two committed to a life beside the other. Two personalities, two dreams, two separate hopes for their futures. Until they said two words, “I do.”And then two became one. One path.One journey.One dream bigger, sweeter, greater than each one combined.One life they shared. And then one day, one baby […]

A year that looked different that any year before.The unknown.The unfamiliar.The unusual. And then the understanding of something powerful.Something beautiful.Something rare. The dawning awareness that they didn’t have to do it alone. There, standing with them in the different and difficult–stood the other. The sister she’d known her whole life.The one who sees the innermost […]

“She will change the world…” Trista said with gentle confidence as she watched her daughter. Full of life.Full of spirit.Full of strength. And as I let the power of her mothers words and the certainty in which she spoke them settle deep into my heart–I knew. I knew the life her words gave. The breath […]

In a world of color, of ordinary days and familiar people, every once in a while you live in a night of gold. Golden skies and beaming light.Where glances and laughter and play sashay softly atop the swaying reeds and wrap her arms around tall turning trees. It’s here time takes a breath.Slowly in.Slowly out. […]

Sometimes at the end of a day life seems clearest. When all the moments of what came before built one upon the other to lead to the present. And somehow the glittering light softly casts illumination on not just the journey you’ve taken to get there, but the people you’ve become along the way. How […]
