More Asa Quotes:

Asa: It's dangerous to run in the road 'cause a car could squash you flat like a scarecrow.
Me: Scarecrows are flat?
Asa: Yes, if they get squashed by a car.
Asa: Mom, are you going to wear that?
Me: (in what I thought was a cute jogging suit) Yes, why?
Asa: Because I'll be embarrassed.
Me: WHY?
Asa: Because it looks like pajammies and people are going to laugh at you.
"Asa, what do you want for Christmas?"
"An iPad."

Four Years Ago...

I heard God speak more clearly that I ever have in my life:

You must start now.

We had been planning to adopt from Haiti since 2000 and started gathering agency information in early 2006, but something was stopping us. It just hadn't been the right time. In late January of 2007, I stood in my foyer and yelled to my husband who was upstairs in his office, "It's time. We really have to start the adoption... now." He agreed and we didn't look back. We picked an agency in early February and this blog began.

I can't believe it's been four years. Crazy.
