3 Years a Yoder

About 2 weeks ago we celebrated a very special day.  The girls Gotcha Day.  They have been with us for 3 years now.  It seems so long ago when Ted and I were in China holding the girls for the first time yet the emotions of that first day are still so vivid that it seems like it was yesterday.  IMG_4544Over these 3 years we have struggled with sleep issues, attachment issues, language issues, learning issues.  Medically we have dealt with so many ear infections you can’t count, 3 sets of ear tubes that were suppose to help with countless ear infections but sort of didn’t help, lip surgeries, palate surgeries.  It has been a long road, a road that we did not travel very gracefully.  Even with all the bumps that we have traveled Ted and I feel very blessed to call these two ours.  They have taught us a lot about ourselves, about being parents, about unconditional love, and about faith in God.   As they continue to grow I hope we can teach our kids some of those same lessons we have learned these past few years.  IMG_4571

I am a stay at home mom to two very active boys and soon we will bring home two Chinese twin girls with cleft lip and palate issues. I spend my day trying to be the best parent and wife I can be with God leading the way.
