Part twelve: The end of the beginning

I pull off the road just a mile from the where the castle sits perched on the hill, it seems to glow in the late afternoon sun, the snow sparkles as the light moves over the ground and I can’t catch my breath it’s so beautiful. My hands are still on the wheel as IContinue reading “Part twelve: The end of the beginning”

Part Five: dancing moonlight

I could hear the kids crying butContinue reading “life beyond Eden”

What he teaches mee

I remember being pregnant with Kaleb, the feeling of him growing inside me and the immediate love that happened when I met him for the first time in the OR, when they held him close to me for the first time so that I could see him; so unlike Joshua’s delivery and so beautifully normal.Continue reading “What he teaches mee”
