Let the Quilting Begin

When we found out we were having twins, Lisa offered to make baby quilts for our two littles. Since I’ve wanted to learn how to sew and quilt for a while now, I figured this would be a good time for me to kick start the training process. I don’t think I’ll be doing much of the actual sewing part just yet, but more of the cutting, planning, watching, and learning along the way. Baby steps for baby quilts!

How You Can Help: Building Our Family Piece by Piece

UPDATE: Our fundraiser is closed – thanks for your support!

piece by piece

Adoption isn’t easy.

For us, adopting isn’t just about adding children to our family. We believe that God calls us to care for orphans (Isaiah 1:17, James 1:27), and we believe that these easily overlooked embryonic orphans are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27, Psalm 139:13-16).

Old Wives’ Tales

Well, our little Baby A finally uncrossed those legs! That’s right, we know both Baby A and Baby B’s gender now!

We thought it would be fun to have a gender reveal party to announce our littles’ genders, but since all our family live so far away that wasn’t really a good option for us. So, we sent out little homemade scratch-and-reveal cards to our family so they could still have the element of surprise!

We have decided to wait about a week or so to ‘officially’ announce whether our babies are he(s), she(s), or one of each, just to make sure everyone has enough time to check their snail mail. But in the meantime, why not have a little fun with some old wives’ tales and let’s hear your guesses!
