hope that doesn't ever end

I wish I could tell you the depths to which Bob and I have been, that God has brought us back from.  The brokeness we've experienced personally and as a couple that have brought us to this point in our lives.  We've lived a lot of life in the 7 years we've been married, and plan to celebrate that next week on our anniversary.

We drove out to Colorado over Thanksgiving week in 2005, 2 months after we started dating, to get married.  We told no one.  Come one, after all, it can be a bit of a shock to one's system to elope.  But we knew exactly the adventure we wanted to start together.  The following year, Jett was born, then came Mags, and finally Faye.  We moved to Colorado in 2007, after Jett and before Maggie.  We wanted to start fresh and create a life for ourselves.  I can hardly describe how hard it has been, in a good, faith building, challenging, encompassing way.  And I wouldn't trade it for the world.

We have a firm foundation from which we stand on.  Sometimes we slip and slide, but we don't fall off.  We've lived a lot of life in these 7 years, and I can wait to wait to see what else is in store.  Perhaps this adoption is our 7 year itch in marriage? :)
