Day 7: If you are a GIRL


Maybe Baby,
You know that I have four sisters. Three of them are older than me and one is my baby sister. Girls are funny. Sometimes we cry for no reason, and sometimes we yell for no reason, but always we are worth all the effort. Your dad and I will do the best we can to raise you to be happy and smart and kind. Those things matter most. I will teach you to look in a mirror and see beauty that I know is there. I will teach you what a special child of God you are--a special daughter of a loving father in heaven. And we will shop together, even when you are tiny. I will teach you to cook just like my mom taught me. I will need both Grandmas to teach you to sew because I have never been patient enough to learn. Moms and daughters have a special bond. If you are a girl, you will have two mommies (your birth mother and me) and you will know how much you are loved.

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…
