My Favorite Adoption Blog

Lisa at "A Bushel and A Peck" is a mom to eleven.  No, that's not a typo.  She's about my age and has seven biological children.  A few years back they decided to grow their family through adoption.  That  decision led them to bring home four Ethiopian children in a space of only 16 months. 

Lisa blogs about the realities of adopting kids from "the hard places."  Two of her children are HIV positive and came to her when they were older after losing their parents to AIDS. 

It's been hard.  Harder than they anticipated.  But Lisa and Russ are passionately committed to all their kids and Lisa's blog outlines their journey and the things they're learning along the way.  Click on the posts below for a taste of what I'm learning from Lisa at "A Bushel and A Peck."

The Love Falls Out

Together on the Ledge


  1. Dana, thanks for sharing Lisa's blog. Even the name of it connected with me- I used to sing that song to Paul and Mary when they were little.
    The broken heart with the loves falling out is so graphic- and true. I am so thankful that God is in the business of mending broken hearts! Love, Sherri
