Out of Sight, Out of Mind?

Did you miss us?  I haven't blogged regularly for probably two years now.  There are two reasons.  One, I felt like I had blogged just about everything I could have about life in Taiwan. I felt like there wasn't much more to say about life here that I hadn't already said.  And, two, infertility was a personal struggle that I didn't feel comfortable blogging about in public.

[Interesting how--at least to me--being single was an ok thing to struggle with on my public blog, but not infertility.  Perhaps one reason is that when I first started blogging I was anonymous--I didn't know my readers and they didn't know me.  But the longer I blogged, the more I met readers and more IRL people started reading it.  So, it no longer felt like I was talking into an empty hole.]

Well, in May of this year, after nearly four years of trying unsuccessfully to conceive, Lawrance and I filed for adoption.  And, we are expecting a little girl in January of 2013.  However, this little girl will be from my womb!!  We found out a week or two after we turned in our application that I was pregnant!!  ;)  God has been gracious with us.  We are excited that he has chosen to bless us in this way at this time.

Here's how we announced to family and friends when we first found out.
I'm currently 24 weeks pregnant.  I'm going to attempt to revive the blog, and quite honestly it's focus will change . . . and that's ok with me since it is supposed to be our family's blog.


  1. I was just thinking of you the other day, wondering how you were doing. I am soooo thrilled for you!!! I can't wait to hear all about Baby Wu and what it is like to how raise a child in Taiwan. :-) And yay for girls! I have two of them myself. :-)

    P.S. I struggled a little bit with infertility... not NEARLY to that extent, only 15 months, but that small taste has given me a compassion for couples who truly go through that struggle. My heart breaks for you and I am so grateful to God for answering your prayers with a little baby!

  2. yahoo to the revival of the wuhoo! :)

  3. Praise the Lord!! I have read your blog for years....prayed for you in your singleness and prayed for you in your infertility. I am SO so happy for you!!

    I have had brief struggles with infertility. At this point the doctors think that I am physically fine...but we have yet to be pregnant. This journey has totally given me a new heart for couples who go through that. I so admire your faith over the years and again, I am so happy for you all!


  4. yay yay yay!! so glad you're back to blogging again :) and praise Jesus for Baby Wu

  5. Oh, Amanda. I have prayed for this, and am SO delighted to hear your news!

    Also, yes, I have definitely missed you. So glad you are back!

  6. Congratulations! God is soo good! I started visiting your blog when you were still single. And to see how God has granted you the desires of your heart gives me hope that maybe one day He will give me a husband too.

    God bless you and Lawrance as you begin this new chapter of life. :D
