Pots of Gold

5 sweet, precious days surrounded by a whole host of little pots.

 Little pots of gold.

Little pots and their many brothers and sisters and Mamas and Papas.

All of us there with our precious pots to celebrate, refresh, renew.

All of us there because we found our pots through a ministry that has been around now for 10 years.

All of us there because sometimes we need to be around other Mamas and Papas who are walking the same road we are walking.

All of us there because our pots need to be surrounded by other pots who share their story.

All of us there to laugh and cry and rejoice and mourn.

5 sweet days.

So so many precious pots of gold.

We made new friends.

We caught up with old friends. 

We enjoyed the itty bittys.

 We shared our stories. We loved on each other's children.

One of my greatest pleasures was watching my two sons being accepted and included.  They were wanted. They were loved.

These pictures are just a tiny glimpse of our week.

It was such a sweet blessing to be surrounded by so many families and so many sweet children.



Each one so special. So precious. So incredibly unique.


Pots of gold. 

I am so thankful for every single one of these pots of gold.


I'm especially thankful for these two pots who are now counting down the days until next year!

My very own little pots.


  1. Great pictures, great memories, great kids, great families, great times! It was so good to reconnect last week, and to meet old friends and new at the reunion. One of these years I'm going to stick around for more than a day, but meanwhile, I sure am glad I was able to spend a little time hanging out with everyone and getting to meet people in real life.

    Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures...

  2. Oh my goodness!!! Is that my Ryan?! He looks soooo grown up but I would recognize that sweet face anywhere! Thanks so much for sharing - seeing that picture made me cry remembering the days I held him in my arms struggling to believe that he would ever have a family... Now off to email his mom for an update :)

  3. Love the pictures! Good to see Rebecca!


Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
