Cheers to Seven Years!

Another year of life with my very best friend has come and gone. Today marks SEVEN years of wedded bliss with the man I love best. The last seven years have not held that which we expected, but I cannot begin to imagine a man with whom I would rather walk this road. To be sure, the Lord has asked us to endure some of the most painful things my mind can fathom, but I am here with you, Adam, and I love you all the more for staying here with me. This road is one I could not walk without you, and I love you for your faithfulness, your encouragement, your trust, your steadiness and your unwavering commitment to God and to our marriage. I love you. I love you. I love you.

 What happens when Adam has the camera...
 And then I give up and...
I take the camera back. 

My souls loves all that is you, Adam, and I am so thankful that the Lord saw fit to match me with you. 



  1. Hi Baylor,
    I have been following your blog for several months and today I just got the courage to write to you. First of all I’d like to thank you for sharing your feelings through this page. I am also a teacher, a Primary teacher, in Spain where I am from. My husband and I started our adoption process 4 years ago. We have been going through very tough moments during these 4 years, first of all looking for a pregnancy but also we have lost an important member of our family 3 years ago. This year is being a very difficult year according to the adoption. We haven’t had any news in months. Our path to our Ethiopian baby is full of stones and hard moments. Reading your feelings help me so much as it makes me feel I am not the only one checking on my emails waiting for news, checking on the waiting list if we have moved a single step forward to our son/daughter. It is becoming a real challenge of faith and hope to wake up every morning with a smile. Thanks a million for your words! Good luck on your journey to your child! Love,

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your heart, Eloisa. You are right that this is such a hard thing, and it is even more difficult to explain it to those who care for us so deeply. I am hoping and praying that your journey comes to a beautiful end SOON. Until then, know that I am in your corner.
