i hate making decisions. {Hawaii Blogger}

i hate making decisions.

we have to make a very big decision soon. if i could pay someone else to make this decision, i would. i am praying and seeking god for his direction.

i know what our decision needs to be...i just can't seem to make it.

i know god works all things together for good. nothing is wasted. 

i know this. now i must work on trusting this.

i'm glad these two get to make memories together. whether it be temporary or forever. I'm grateful she will always know him and have a connection to her biological family.

before i had children...

before i had children, i had kelsea...my niece. she'd always spend the night, we'd go on adventures, waikiki Staycations, eat at the cheesecake factory, and be fabulous together.

i closed my eyes for a second and she grew up. i turned around and it was 10 years later. she's brilliant, kind, and loving. all the things i prayed she'd become. actually, she's just like me.

10 years later she's starting high school. 10 years later i'm still praying for her. praying she doesn't lose her wonder. praying she remains focused. praying she knows her worth. praying she knows she's loved.

i love you kel. happy 1st day of high school.

two years ago i...

two years ago i wrote about this princess...remember her...how could you forget?
well, she was since adopted by her foster family AND became my goddaughter.
have you ever witnessed a miracle? where your heart stops? where you get goose bumps? where tears come to your eyes? just last week, at 2.5 years old, this miracle happened. She took her first steps.
this. this miracle right here, is what can happens when children are given love. when children are given family. when children are given hope.
i love you baby girl.
