Not the Land of Make-Believe

When I was a little girl, and I imagined my grown-up life, I always pictured myself as a mom

…with lots of little ones.

But, life doesn’t always turn out exactly the way you imagine….

.I am not the mom of many.


I am mommy to one.

This one.

It may not be the picture I saw in those childhood dreams….

But, this isn’t the land of make-believe.

This is real.

And…it is far better than any dream!


I love you, Hannah!

It is a blessing, a privilege, and a joy to be your mommy!!


  1. I, too, have just one child – a beautiful daughter. Sometimes I don’t understand why God ordained that she be an only child…but I am blessed beyond measure to be her mother.

    Happy belated Mother’s Day!

  2. Thank you so much. Although I have 2 children instead of one your post spoke to my heart today. I was struggling with this in my emotions and I have a feeling that’s why I came across your post. I need to remember that God has a perfect plan for my family.

  3. I’m visiting from m2mblogroll, where you were featured! My family doesn’t look anything like I’d imagined once upon a time, either. We are currently waiting, waiting, waiting on an international adoption; thanks for the reminder that God is in control and He is GOOD.
