Hey, there!

Digital introductions sound so forced and flat considering I have no idea who is reading on the other side of the screen.

I find it awkward introducing myself to you without us being face to face. I’d much rather invite you into my kitchen, offer you sweet tea or lemon water, and then sit you down at the bar with a bowl of fresh guacamole and a handful of chips.

Since that isn’t possible, I’ll settle for the typical welcome letter, but please know I’m truly glad you’re here.

This little spot is my virtual cliff.

It’s the place where I jump off the edge flinging words as I plunge into the internet wilderness. It’s not a move seeking risk or thrills or attention. It’s just obedience to God.

He’s the One asking me to write my adoption reunion story. Jumping off a real cliff would require less courage.

When I typed the first post, it felt like labor pains.  The words hurt and ripped and opened and exposed private places I’d only shared with family and close friends, but in the process a miracle was birthed- first in me and then others.

I named my adoption reunion story, Eyes of a Stranger. My prayer is you will see the eyes of Christ and His amazing healing power in every line.

You see, this isn’t a story about me.  It’s about Him.

I’ve tried to make it easy for you to follow along by numbering the posts much like  chapters in a book.

Click here for the first post  to start at the beginning.  Mixed in with Eyes of a Stranger are other, random posts, too.

I’d love to connect with you on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and my personal favorite, Twitter.

    “…it was like labor. It hurt and ripped and opened and exposed, but in the end produced a miracle.” What a fabulously poignant line of prose, my friend! Well said. That line is an absolute keeper no matter what your “real” editor says. Your “pretend” editor LOVES that line. =)


    • Sheri, I have grinned a mile wide each and every time I have read this comment. I have read this comment like 50 times. You are such a well-spoken woman and quite the talented writer so when you say something works then I know it does. You will always be my “real” editor.

    Oh, and I forgot to say that I like the new background up top. Very intriguing, like NCIS-ish, in the black and white the word “stranger” pops.

    It made me wonder if there was some significance to ES or YES TRANGER.


    • Thanks for your comment, Nancy. I see what you mean. I hope they eye goes to the ES. I may need to design some type of symbol or something. The cool thing about design is that it’s ever growing and changing. I appreciate you taking the time to look and think and share.
