Beckham Free – Our BIG Boy’s Birth Story

Note: this birth story contains content surrounding a traumatic delivery, such as not breathing at birth… as well as normal delivery/birth story words like urine, placenta and sewn up – if any of those things make you uncomfortable, you might want to pass on this one. —- With all the other boys, our birth stories […]

Life, Motherhood and Grief.

Some people believe life begins at 18 days… or 12 weeks… or 20 weeks… or when a baby has taken it’s first breath…. I’m not that person. I believe life begins at conception. And I believe that every single life is precious and whole. — I’ve been talking with a lot of men and women […]

Miscarriage – He Knew You.

“God won’t give you more than you can handle.” Screw that. —— Finding out you just lost a baby, even one you weren’t aware of yet, is never something God thinks you can handle. Like it’s some sort of game He’s playing… waiting to see how strong He can make you become via the various life […]

Rockwell King: Birth Story

Well, it finally happened, after 38 long weeks, we got to meet our third bundle of beautiful chaos, Rockwell King. I wanted to take a little time and write down our birth story, as I have done in the past with the boys – and share with you some of the beautiful photos Bella Baby […]

Why I deleted our YouTube Kids App – our story.

I am not one to take to Facebook to talk about something like this, but in the past two weeks, I’ve told our story to so many people, and it’s all over the news as well. After talking with two of my sisters in law, I realized that Edison’s story is maybe unique in that, we […]

Cemented, A Flawed Mom’s Journey to Balance.

FYI I wrote this blog post 2 months ago and just never got around to posting it. And here we are 2 months later and I’m just smiling and laughing at how God works. So I thought I’d go ahead and post it, 2 months late. Again, here’s another long one – you made need […]

Richardson Family Video!

Hey friends! While we are spending all our time on blog posts recapping our trips and ministry, we also tried to be pretty good about recording our summer from our family’s perspective! I’m in love with watching this though, because it gives me a good look into seeing Haiti from the boy’s perspective. It’s long, […]

One Wilde Night – Atticus’ Birth Story

  “Well, I’d say a baby in the pants is the worst night.”  – slowest ER worker ever “There’s a good chance that tonight’s gonna be bad then!” – me — Before I can tell you the story of Friday, November 25th… I need to back up a few weeks. Back to a normal Tuesday […]

Pregnancy Post: Nursery and Maternity Pictures!

  Wow, 35 weeks. It’s crazy to think that in 5 weeks (or less?), he’ll be here! Seems like just yesterday I was staring at that positive pregnancy test in Haiti and freaking out with excitement. This pregnancy has been so different and in all honesty, a little more complicated than the last. But it’s […]

When Life Gives You Lemons but You Kinda Hate Lemonade.

Do you ever have those days/weeks/months/seasons/years where you just want to find a dark closet to hide in and just play pretend that the world and all it’s problems don’t exist? I do. If I’m honest, I’ve had more than a few days of this feeling in the past few weeks. And the best way […]

Breastfeeding – May the Force Be With You.

This post was previously posted on The Kindred Women, but since that blog has since been on hiatus, I’m reposting some of my writings onto our blog here. I hope you enjoy!   I’m only half-­joking with that title up there. Seriously, sometimes I think you have to be half-wizard to be able to breastfeed. Breast­feeding… […]

The Night I Forgot My God – a mother’s story.

Have you ever had a moment of brokenness that even after it is over, months later, you can think back to and recall perfectly how you felt – and how much it changed you? I have. I want to share it with you today. It’s from 5 days after Edison was born. It’s definitely not the prettiest […]
