Day 13: Jacer


Maybe Baby,
Your uncle Jacer was adopted, just like you. He’s going to be a great person to go to when you have questions about life; his life is a little bit like your life. From the moment Jace was born, we realized that he was a good “fit” for our family. Jace is funny. He is generous and clever. I can't imagine life without him around because he is such an important part of who my parents are, who we all have become.

That’s what adoption does. It creates new, interesting families. I met his birth mother the day he was born. She was funny and sassy and bright. She loved him so much that she wanted to give him a better life than what she could provide, so she allowed my parents to adopt him. I think he sometimes wishes he knew more about his birth mother, but his adoption was closed. Times have changed, and most adoptions now are open. We will help you know your birth mother and how much she loves you.

Most importantly

I have been a Primary teacher for the past few years. I like it a lot because it gives me a chance to know kids in the ward that otherwise would be strangers to me. And, I am learning all sorts of lessons about love and patience and what it might be like to teach my own children gospel principles.

Last week during the final meeting, we had a mini-lesson that gave every person in the room a chance to stand up and "fill in the blanks" of the following phrases. It was beautiful, and I decided that I would use it to frame tonight's blog post.

I like the idea of it, this one simple [and enormous] thing that everyone could testify of. Tender.

Today, June 29, is the year mark from the day I became a mom.

My entire life has been a series of tender mercies. I am still convinced that I was given my scholarship to Westminster simply because Heavenly Father knew that as a teenager, my tendency was to give up if things were too hard, and He knew I needed to be a teacher.

When I moved to Nephi, I was given a great job simply because the Lord knew that I needed to be HOME in order to sort out the mess I was making of my life. It worked.

Shortly after falling in love with Blaine, I became his Mrs. without hesitation. Our relationship is now and always has been EASY. We knew that we could build a happy life, that we could build a beautiful forever and so we did. We are.
We found an incredible home with room to grow. Purchased at auction, we marveled at the home and tried to think of how we could possibly fill five bedrooms. A tender mercy.

In February of last year, my sister called and talked to me about a possible adoption. There w…
