Blog Break

I didn't plan to take a break but here I am.  I'm going to be a silent for a while.
I have tons on my mind and in my heart but I'm having a hard time getting the words out.
We are still working out our new norm as sole owners of our growing business.
I'm off to Lancaster, PA this week for an Adminstrators Convention for Christian Schools.... hoping to convince a few of the schools to consider using our curriculum!!
While I am there I will get to spend a few hours with some special people.  Maybe kiss a babe or two. 
I know many of you long for updates on Aaron since he IS the star of this blog!!


I am planning on some updates... there are changes in the wind for him in the coming months as he faces surgery in March.  My heart aches for him because this round is going to be ROUGH but we know that in the long run it will be GOOD.
He's THRIVING in school.
His vocabulary is growing by the day though most people can't always understand what he is saying.
He's reading.  He's writing.  Yes he is. My little guy is doing all his papers by hand and he is DOING THEM.  He can use scissors.  He colors.  His drawings are amazing considering!!!  He blows his teacher away with all that he does. 
He's happy. 
We know this to be true because about 10 times a day he lets us know.  "I'm Happy."
I'm glad.
He captures hearts wherever he goes.
There is not a night that goes by when I pray over him and kiss his little head goodnight that I don't think about where he was. 
There is not a day that goes by that I don't grieve for those left behind.
And that is the very hardest part.
The very hardest part indeed.
Once your eyes are opened.....


  1. I will miss you on your blogging break but I understand. Thanks for the update on Aaron.

  2. I love this handsome boy AND I miss him terribly! He was the highlight of my work week, and I feel so blessed to know him. God has an amazing plan in place for Aaron, and I look forward to following along as an observer! Love you, Aaron! "Miss Cookie"

  3. Lancaster! Ooh I think I know what special babes you might get to kiss! I'm jealous!! You're always loving on babes I only get to love from afar!! Lucky duck. Safe travels.

  4. Bryson and I will be in Philly from Feb 16th to March 8. Will we get to meet up?

  5. I too will miss your posts as they are daily inspiration for me. May your heart, mind and soul be refreshed and filled with a peace and calmness that can only come from our Father in heaven. I'm wiping tears as I think right now of the first time I saw your sweet boy. He was the one that grabbed me the very first time I saw RR. And now 3 yrs., (and a new son for both of us!)later, none of us will ever be the same. Just like you said......Once our eyes are opened. Thanks Julia for all you do for these precious kids. I will be standing by waiting for those updates on sweet Aaron!! Blessings to you and yours.

  6. You're heading up to my neck of the woods! Lancaster is so pretty and still so quaint (away from the big city of course). I hope you sell lots of curriculum kits! So nice to see how well Aaron is doing! His dimples still knock me out!

  7. Wow, way to go Aaron!! So happy to hear that things are working out school wise. Please let me know if you run into any issues that need some assistive tech solutions!!!

  8. Look. This boy from photolisting adoptio looks like Aaron. Hope he will be adopted :(

  9. Oh I wish i knew you were coming. I live very close to Lancaster and would have loved to have met up with you and said hello. If you are here for any longer or come this way again, let me know and we can meet! Those Lancaster babies are cute!


Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
