Over the past few months of travel I've gotten to talk to three different couples who have dealt with infertility. One couple just adopted a baby; the other two were praying about it. Infertility is a difficult cross for a couple to bear and I think many times we (as a society) are insensitive about it. [...]

I don't normally do this, but sometimes you come across something too good not to share. And when it's made by people you know, that makes it even more special.

Having children that range from 4 to 13, there are times I watch the Disney Channel. I love the cartoons (Phineas and Ferb!) but not a fan of their sitcoms.
