It's that time again!

Ultimate Blog Party 2012


It's time for the ultimate Blog Party again!  I think this is the 3rd year I've participated, and I've made some amazing online friendships with women through this!  Some of the relationships, although they are online, have been a huge encouragement for me and I look forward to our weekly conversations!


I'm going to make this short and sweet so you can get to looking around!  To introduce myself....I am Christi!  I am a Mom of 5 amazing children, one whom resides in heaven.  I started blogging in 2004 after the loss of our son, Colt, to cancer.  Colt was 3 years old at the time and blogging was a way to just get it all out there.  I continued blogging through the adoption of our daughter Jolea from Vietnam.  I love blogging about our family and sharing pictures of all our exciting moments.  It's almost like a written book of our life.  Going back and reading about all those special moments is just bittersweet!  So, welcome to my blog and thanks for stopping by!!

Hi I am stopping by from the hop. I read Colt's story I am so very sorry. I can not imagine how hard that would be. I am a mommy to 6 our 6th was stillborn in January and I started a blog to deal with my felling. I am amazed at wonderful friends that I have found in the community of moms that said goodbye to their babies and children. I am happy to meat you and I am thankful for your testimony of continuing to trust Jesus through such an unbearable trial. Thank you for loving Jesus and blogging so others can see your powerful testimony.

It's nice to meet you through UBP. I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your son. I lost our first child through a miscarriage last December. That was so difficult that I can't imagine what it must be like to lose a child that has already been born.

Court said...

Nice to meet you and my what a hard catalyst but what a lovely site you have and can't wait to flit back for more visits and peruse your obvious joy!

Jen said...

You gave just a brief intro to yourself and your family, but I can see a tremendous amount of strength, grace and love. I am so happy to have found your blog and hope that we can become better friends.
