Hi! We're the Smith Family...
Joey, Lindsay, Hannah, Hunter, our #3 in Heaven, Michael, and Abe!
We have been married for 11 years and have been immeasurably blessed! Our precious daughter Hannah is our over-night miracle.... she's 8 years old and keeps us on our toes with her contagious smile, bubbling personality, and social skills that go beyond those of many adults we know! Hunter is our living miracle... born at 30 weeks, his fighter's instincts and strong will are truly his greatest strengths. After 8 years of infertility and being told that we would never get pregnant, we received the surprise of our lives when we found out about Baby Smith #3 shortly after Hunter's first birthday. We celebrated with family and friends for 13 weeks before our precious #3 returned to Heaven to wait for us. Completely devastated, we took our time to heal and find our 'new normal', only to be shocked once again by a second pregnancy; our sweet Abram was born in December of 2014 and is truly our spunkiest so far! Our dimpled-cheeked Michael joined us when Abe was a few months old and has rounded out our family of 6! While God allows us to call them our babies, we know that they are truly on loan from Heaven... and they're ours for just a while!
While we have used this blog to document the beautiful mess that is our families story, as well as raise awareness about adoption, special needs, infertility, and loss, this place is also a safe haven for those who are hurting in any capacity, who seek a deeper understanding of Christ's love for every one of us, or who just want to read some honesty thoughts on life. God is writing our story and has blessed us beyond belief by sending each of you to us and making you a part of our story.
If you're struggling through infertility, loss, or the adoption process, or if you just like funny stories and brutal honesty, I'm so glad you're here!
