Still Processing...

I'm still processing the life changing, overwhelmingly awesome, incredible adoption weekend. More on that, I promise. Here's the memory video I made for the boys. Cramming 2.5 years in to a little video is hard. My heart hurts seeing those empty faces on day 1 but I love the beautiful transformations as they days ticked by. Thank you, Lord, for your powerful healing.

Oh, hey there.....

This past Friday, after 1,042 days in foster care, Lincoln and Brooks became Hustads. Oh the journey it's been. God is good. More later....

baby Kash

SO MANY life happenings right now. I'll catch up my blog some day, I promise. But until then, I wanted to take a minute to mark a precious moment in time. Last week, Declan's birth mom had a sweet baby boy. I was taken back by how emotional it was to see Decs with a blood sibling (his first!)  Open adoption is a ridiculously beautiful thing.

Breck Vacay

We snuck away a couple weeks ago to Breckenridge without the boys. We rented a cozy condo with our friends and had 4 days full of snowboarding, delicious food and drinks, nightly fires, shopping, and snoozing.
