A simple poem written when I was probably in my late teens after one of my first trips to Haiti. Haiti changed everything for me. Seeing what I saw there and knowing what they went through broke my heart. I was, an still am, surrounded in life with people who care so much about name brand things and having the best of the best and I wanted to learn to be content with less. I struggle with wanting more but I don't want to ever forget that I have far more than most people in the world. I'm not perfect but don't want to ever forget.......
I've always been a little sensitive, emotional and tender hearted. This blog will be a reflection of my past, my present adventures and my dreams for the future. I am all over the place so topics will include poetry (most of it from very depressing teen years), sign language, my personal adoption, foster care, our family's Haiti adoption roller coaster, missions, outreach, homeschooling, learning through technology and fun randomness I find to share with you.
