Here's to...

...dressing your boy in an embroidered white shirt and calling him 'Panama Jack'.

...dressing YOURSELF in an embroidered white shirt, red beaded necklaces, and pretending you're in Mexico (hopefully with a margarita!).


...wearing your baby to the park and hearing his giggle as you slowly make your way down the slide for the very first time.

...knowing that even though things with the house have taken a downward spiral, and it's been over a month since we have been home, things will be okay. 

I can't go into details anymore on the house, suffice it to say, signed agreements have been broken and plans have been derailed.  I have to remind myself daily that this is not as bad as it could be.  We have a loving family who have offered help, encouragement, and cheer thoughout this situation.  We have our health, we have our love, and we have our baby.

When I am feeling discouraged (which happens more often than I like to admit), I need only look to the mood-ring eyes of my infant son, and the heaviness lifts a little bit.  I kiss his squishy cheeks, and it lifts a little more. 

I hear his little chuckle and my heart sings.

We WILL get home.  We will. 


  1. I think of you often and I truly admire your positive spirit. Also, love the blog header--not sure if you changed it a while back and I wasn't paying attention...

    Have you reconsidered working with an attorney?

  2. Bekah, this is a hard time for you, but you have such a positive attitude.

    It will bring about good change.

    Your baby, sigh, so adorable! But you know that already don't you.

    Hugs to you, Jen

  3. Love the slide photo. That's a face filled with discovery!

    Add me to the list of those who admire your positive attitude in light of all you and your family are going through.

  4. Jack is such a cutie patootie! No way you can stay blue looking at that lil guy. Hope things turn around soon. But like you said, you have your health, happiness and cutest lil guy ever!

  5. Such an adorable baby is Jack! Hope he manages to cheer you up in this awful house mess.

    Praying that you will be home soon!

  6. Just a reminder. You said that you will get are home. Where Matt and Jack are IS home.
    Keep your chin up. Your positive attitude is something to be admired.

  7. Your little guy is adorable! That shirt is too precious on him. Hope everything with your house works out. I know it is so hard to be still especially when people are wronging you. In my husbands line of work we face that a lot, and sometimes all you can do is just sit back and wait for things to happen. Not always fun. but the good news is that home truly is where the heart is. :) Blessings!

  8. he's absolutely adorable! enjoy him...he will grow sooooo fast!

    you are blessed to have so many cousins his age!

  9. Hi Ya! Had to come see the baby. He is so big, and so completely adorable! I am sorry to hear you are having trouble.I hope everything works out, soon. Give that baby a squeeze for me;)

  10. Aw, I love that last picture! :) I'm so sorry about all the house stuff...I hope everything works out! It way or the other!

  11. :( I am SO sorry this is happening to you guys. I am thankful you did find the problem, however. We dealt with a black mold issue in our bathroom after we bought our house too, but we didn't think to hold the previous owner accountable. We should have. I hope you are able to fix it all and things go back to normal really soon.
