America delivered.

The boys and I have now returned from our time in America. It was… how can I summarize?


Apart from missing Ryan/daddy incredibly, it was exactly what we all needed – being surrounded by family, the space and time to slow down and refresh, having few obligations, and the stunning weather that Central Oregon delivered. (In early June?? Miracles happen!)

I have not been very stellar at our thank you notes these last few months and my list just keeps getting longer. The amount of people who have intentionally (and unintentionally) blessed us is long and we are humbled and grateful and–seriously–there just aren’t enough words to thank you.

There isn’t a sliver of doubt in my mind that God is good… and His people really are too.

Thank you to those who have loved, prayed, fed, given, hugged, played, loaned, encouraged, supported, befriended, counseled, and embraced our family during this tricky season. We are full indeed… and daring to dream again.

Love, Adriel & the boys

Now here is a massive dump of some instagram favorites from our time in America. I think this tells the story a bit better than I can with my keyboard…

  1. Glad to hear the trip was amazing and a time of healing, etc. I really enjoyed the pictures, particuarly the ones of the boys sleeping throughout your flights…priceless.

  2. I have been reading your other blog for a few months and just popped over to this. thrilled you loved the USA I live inland just outside of Salt Lake City, Utah but we love to visit the Organ coast, and what a perfect time to go. Have a Merry Christmas.
