So much of motherhood is about your little people’s dreams.
But what about other peoples’ little people?
Kids in the Texas foster care system are more times than not left to bounce from home to home until someone adopts them – or they age out of the system. Bexar county, where we live, has rather abysmal numbers and is one of the largest regions in the state. Children – Right. Now. – need help in a variety of ways.
How do I know this? We just attended our first foster/adopt informational meeting.
Fascinating and heart-breaking statistics and details.
I don’t know what else to share here except that my husband and I are on the same page. We want more kids.
We believe God has designed our family to include more kids.
And we want them via the courtroom and not the hospital.
I guess what I am sharing here is that you should stay tuned (or join us, if you’re just clicking for the first time!)… the cinco Rodrigos could grow to seis!

P.S. I will share more about what got us here another time… there is a back story, I promise! #adoptionrunsinthefamily
And the random title?
A couple of weeks ago, I was imagining what it might be like to have another (grown) child join our family… I saw struggles, yes, and I saw some exciting things, too. While I let my imagination run wild, I opened my husband’s year-long devotional and for that date (Dec 22), it said that God uses our imaginations to grow his dreams for us. Wow. Talk about a sign, right? So here we are. We begin.
