I thought to start things out, I should explain why I chose the title of my blog. It's a quote from the movie Bella (<--a must see). The first time I heard it, it occurred to me that I must make God laugh--A BUNCH! I pretty much had a list of "nevers" that I started out with that He has changed my heart about over the years. I would never drive a mini-van, homeschool my children, have more than 1 or 2 children.... You get the point. I am pleased to tell you that we did drive a mini-van (for a while), I do homeschool my children, and we have 5 children and are adopting our 6th from Taiwan. This, by the way, is a very micro-mini list of the things God has changed in me. The complete list could possibly be a blog all on it's own. Maybe that one could be titled Beth's ridiculous list of nevers. Or maybe A Series of Almost Unfortunate Events.
The majority of posts in this blog will be about our adoption. I'm usually a pretty quiet kind of gal, but if me being real and open about our adoption turns "147 million orphans minus 1" into 2 or 3 or 4... then here I am. The other posts...hmmm...I don't know yet. I guess grab some chocolate (I'm assuming you like chocolate. It's not a prerequisite or anything, though.), pull up a seat, and join us as I pour my heart out on a public blog.
