The Waiting Room

We announced to our family and friends on May 5th of this year that we are deciding to grow our family through adoption.  On June 3rd, we published our online adoption profile and told the world about our search...
In the Marasco house, we LOVE football! Be sure to understand me when I say WE, because I don't just mean that my husband watches it while I tolerate it. NO, I am a HUGE fan of football, as...
This summer, during the crazy time of my church’s Vacation Bible School, my dear friend posted on Facebook a sweet bed-head photo of her nine-month-old on the morning of the last day of  VBS week.  The early morning light...
The research. The networking. The thrill of the first call. The interview ... from the first "no way in hell" to the last "that person was awesome," I loved every minute of our daycare search. Yep. You read that...
One night, as I was doing the never-ending dishes, I found myself having a pretty negative self-talk dialogue. "I'm so tired, why do my kids eat so much, why do I keep cooking, are theses dishes ever going to end,...

Mourning the End of Summer

3
Summer. The word itself conjures up images of long afternoons spent by the pool, ice cream for dinner, BBQs, ponytails, and flip-flops. We love it. We relish it. We count down the days until it returns. But one thing I have noticed...
