I have to be honest...I'm relieved and sad all at the same time to be going private again. Relieved because I know who is reading! Sad because I don't know who I will miss out on getting to *meet* through this blog.

We struggled with going private again. We want this blog to glorify God and tell of His goodness to the WORLD!

At the same time, there was a definite prompting for a few months that it was time to take our family out of the public blog scene once again. We might go public again very soon or never again; we will just listen and pray!

Thank you for all your sweet comments and emails wondering if everything was okay. YES! Everything is FINE! Just one of those nudgings of the Spirit that kept coming back.

(insert cricket-chirping)

I have nothing really to say on the first 'private' post! How anti-climatic! :) That probably breaks every blogging rule in the book.

Is there a blogging rule book, by the way?

Oh, and a few people left comments but didn't give me an email address! One family is the Burbanks...and I need their email address so I can send them a blog invite. Does anybody know their email? I think they might be in the Huntsville area?

More later! But I just have to say...I'm SO HAPPY YOU WOULD WANT TO HANG OUT IN OUR LITTLE BLOG! Blessings...

I can get you the email, but I'd need your email to send theirs to you.

I've struggled with it as well, and I found wordpress gave me the options I felt most comfortable with.

I have struggled with the public versus private blog status. The only reason I have left ours public is so I can use it as a tool to educate others about adoption. Otherwise we too would go private and still may at some point.

Thank you for allowing me to continue seeing and reading of your lovely family's adventures. I look forward to every post...so uplifting.

Don't forget about me!! ;) You have my email, but here it is again, just to make it easier:


I don't want to miss a beat! Love you guys and what a pure treat it was to follow along on your mission adventures to China... I never cried and smiled so much all at once! Can't wait til you go back to bring your precious kiddos HOME!!

Blessings and Hugs,
