Day 31: Quiet

Maybe Baby,

It's gonna be quieter around here for a bit. We're done writing these daily messages. I just thought I'd let you know that even when the messages end, we will still think of you every day. 


The difference is this: the messages we have for you from this point out will be kept in our hearts, not published for the world wide web. 


The last and biggest message we have to share? We love you, and we will try to wait patiently until we meet you.

  1. It's been lovely to see all of your messages to your Maybe Baby. I see so many children every day in hopeless situations and I wish I could pack one of them up and send him/her across to you in the US!! But that would be kind of awkward to explain to the authorities...so I'll just send my prayers and thoughts along with those of so many others, to you both. Good luck, Emma (Jamie and Martins's friend)

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…
