|Amanda and Elli celebrating the joys of mascara!|
It really wasn't my decision; it was a God-thing. Up until 2 years ago, we were a Young Adult group. Most were married, some were single, NONE had children. Be it newborn babies or foster kids, as of last night, David and I remain the only couple without kids.

We rarely have to discipline, so we're always in good favor. Best of all, David has an actual adult excuse to watch cartoons. It's a dream scenario!
As you get to know me a little bit better, you'll learn that David and I can't have children. We went through 7 years of infertility treatments and multiple miscarriages. God has done a lot of work on my heart during those years, and only recently have I accepted that God simply has other plans for me than motherhood. I'm publishing a book with Thomas Nelson in 2014 that I hope will bring information, laughter, comfort, and community to women who have similar struggles with fertility.
I take so much joy in the little ones around me who seem to like me better than most other adults. David says it's because I "get down on their level." That's a compliment, right?
