Some time during Benjamin's first year, I received a special gift from a friend that still hangs on the wall of our bedroom. It is a colorful, small wood carving of a woman holding a bird with the words, "Tell Your Story." This blog has been a wonderful outlet for doing just that, but I am ready to take things to the next level. I have hardly blogged at all this year, partially due to the busyness of caring for two small children, but largely due to my current project of compiling much of my writing into book form. My husband graciously releases me on Saturday mornings to head to my favorite coffee shop and work on crafting wings for this new "bird" to fly. To date I have a completed rough draft for my book Reflections from Holland: A New Mother's Journey with Down Syndrome. I will soon begin seeking to have it self-published. I think I know which avenue to use for this, but I would appreciate prayers for continued wisdom and direction. Stay tuned for more unfolding details to come!
