It's About Love

I've mentioned before that I am an adoptive mother. Both of our amazing, sweet, fun sons came to us from someone else's tummy! My little Nate likes to say that my tummy is broken, sometimes that happens. You may wonder, "Well, what about those girls she has?". We wonder too, we honestly don't know how they got here...babies aren't something we are supposed to be able to do. People have asked me what it's like to have biological children and adopted children. Everyone wonders if you love them the same. The answer is YES! There is not one teeny, tiny difference in the love I have for my is exactly the same, fierce, scary, mother bear kind of love! So.....why am I telling you this? Because I'd like to introduce you to my friend Cyd and her adorable little family. They are looking for a little sister for their boys to love and protect. There's nothing like a big brother!
Ryan and Cyd have the two most adorable little boys, Noah and Jaxon. Like me, Cyd's tummy is now broken, yet they feel like they have more to give and would love to add a little girl to their family. Once in a while there is a birth mother who wants her child to have big brothers and sisters, this is the kind of family the Jones' can provide. Ryan is an awesome, involved daddy (he coaches all of their sons teams) and Cyd' is just the cutest, sweetest mom, teaching those boys to grow up to be good men. If you happen to know anyone thinking about placing a baby girl for adoption have them take a peek at Ryan and Cyd's profile. Every day I thank Heavenly Father for our sweet birth mom's, who put their babies before themselves and gave them the chance at a better life.

Not flesh of my flesh,

nor bone of my bone,

But still miraculously my own.

Child never forget,

Even for a single moment,

You didn't grow under my heart,

but in it.


  1. I am a adopted child and my parents had 3 biological boys of their own after they got me. My husband and I are going to try for our third now but the doctor told me this could possibly be our last because of the c-sections I have had with my previous 2. So adoption is definitely something I would like to do as well someday and support! Good luck to them and I hope a sweet little baby gets sent their way soon. I know that strong urge you have to have kids and desire them!

  2. I will pray for them that they find there little girl!
    Your peanut butter treats look awesome!

  3. Bobbi, you are just the sweetest friend ever! I am sitting here crying reading your wonderful post! Love you so much!

  4. Being in the ministry...from time to time we do come across situations such as this. I will keep my ears open!

  5. Please pass the Puffs plus lotion... *sniff*dab* Praying for this precious family!

  6. Good luck, I've been through infertility myself - very difficult thing.

  7. I can't really help...but what a sweet story. I just started Kristin Chenowith's book A Little Bit Wicked and she talks about being adopted. Very sweet how she talks about her family.

  8. What a lovely post. My sister just adopted a sweet little boy and he is so perfect!!! I can not have any more children and think maybe SOME day I will be able to adopt. If Heavenly Father wants another child in our lives it will happen.

  9. Your site is so cute! I have a broken tummy too!;)...and a wonderful little 5 yr old that grew "..not in my tummy but in my heart". Love the poem.

  10. Just sent you an e-mail! Hope that she finds her daughter soon. When she does let me know and I'll send her some hairbows!
