"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

Ruthie-Full of Questions....some easy, some a bit more difficult.

She & I went to the safety deposit box over Christmas to see her Birthmother's picture.  We have not shown anyone else their birthmom's picture, because there is so little about their adoption that is theirs to control. 

This way, at least to see/not see their birthmom is up to them. 

And honestly, she has started to ask more simple questions about why she & Nat look different than us.  Daddy & I always tell her how beautiful she is (of course), & as other questions come up, we try to answer them as honestly & openly as we can. 

One blessing that has opened up recently, is that we have struck up a friendship w/ another family that has an older bio son & a daughter a week younger than Ruthie, also adopted from Guatemala.  (we met at the zoo-how bizzare is that?)

Ruthie loves talking about her new friend, & she loves that they both share some of the same story.....you know? 

We had them over for some playtime last weekend......& they enjoyed a few hours together.  They even did a pretty good job including Nat! 

Here they all are together-
beautiful, are they not?
