Welcome to the Carter blog. There once were 5 of us, then we grew to 11, then 14 for a short period and now are about to be 12. Some may say we are actually ONE EGG SHORT OF A DOZEN for choosing to have a large family. We hurt and cry and sometimes yell but then again we laugh, forgive, and have fun much more! We call ourselves FAMILY. Join us on the adventures we seem to fall into on our adoption journeys and family life. You never know what you will find!

I found the lyrics to the Twila paris song and felt I had to share them with you. they are so accurate of what I have experienced. I am including them here. Maybe they will encourage someone else. I went today and visted the school the kids will be staying at and tomorrow they will move there. I have a supply list of things I have to buy tomorrow. It is going to be hard leaving them but this is the best option I have at the moment. I can tell they are nervous but are excited too. I thought it was going to be this mission school but it is actually another school run by another church. They will do ok while I am gone. thanks again for your prayers. Love, melissa Lately I've been winning battles left and right But even winners can get wounded in the fight People say that I'm amazing Strong beyond my years But they don't see inside of me I'm hiding all the tears (Chorus) They don't know that I go running home when I fall down They don't know who picks me up when no one is around I drop my sword and cry for just a while 'Cause deep inside this armour The warrior is a child Unafraid because his armour is the best But even soldiers need a quiet place to rest People say that I'm amazing Never face retreat But they don't see the enemies That lay me at His feet Chorus x2 I drop my sword and look up for His smile Because deep inside this armour Deep inside this armour Deep inside this armour The Warrior is a Child
