I do not want to have my legs or arms or nose broken. It is the summer of the Worlds Cup and I need to be in my best shape ever.…

    Love Comes Home My heart stopped the moment I saw her beaming face as she sprinted down the hallway of the airport to meet her new family. In an instant, my world was changed forever. It was the end of July 2014 and we had spent countless hours decorating the spare bedroom of my aunt and uncle’s home with a handmade quilt, dozens of stuffed animals, and a whole new wardrobe. The room was filled with anything an 8 year old girl could ever want. The long wait was finally over and tomorrow, July…
