And so, we wait.

Becky MorquechoAdoption, Surrender, Waiting1 Comment

“Any news?” “Have you heard anything?” I don’t mind the questions at all. I feel a sense of community that our people are waiting with us. Besides, it gives me a chance to tell each inquirer how incredible our God is. We are more than 7 months in now, since … Read More

Beneath the surface.

Bougainvilleas are my absolute favorite. There are oranges, purples and pinks but my favorite is that bright magenta. I love it so. On the way to the grocery store, on the way to the gym, on the way to Target, on the way to our favorite park, pretty much everywhere … Read More

A basket of tangerines.

The sky is gray and the palms outside my window swing + sway, waiting for the rain. The house is still. Quiet. The rising steam from my tea the only movement to be made. The fuzzy blanket covers most of me, except my toes, as I start the day slowly. … Read More

A couple of things about China.

Becky MorquechoAdoption, Waiting8 Comments

For years and years and a bunch more years after that, my mom has been talking about China. She went on a couple missions trips to China, two separate trips, a few years apart. They changed her life, as those things have the tendency to do. I mean, after I … Read More

Yesterday. I couldn’t even handle it. God’s grace + gifts bouncing around like a magical light all over my entire life. Ping-ponging from one aspect to the next. Bright, beaming goodness, overflowing my heart with gratitude. We sat across the table from each other, dishes and mac-n-cheesy trays piling up … Read More

The end of an era.

If you’re feeling left out.

It was a pity-party type of evening. A couple more baby announcements were coming in hot. I knew they were coming, eventually those sweet little thangs have to come out. But these announcements felt like the last couple of bricks being laid on the walls, closing in, suffocating me. The … Read More

Her first shirt from Target.

Becky MorquechoAdoption, Waiting16 Comments

We will have a lot of trips to Target. Duh. But this was her first (sort of). July 13, 2016. It was about a month after we heard the news about Nicaragua no longer being an option for our adoption (9 months in to paperwork and appointments) and just a … Read More

Sister, sister.

Becky MorquechoInfertility2 Comments

In early 2010 I met Kelly. Her freckly face and bursting laugh made me like her right away. We started hanging out, meeting up for walks where we’d sort of exercise, but mostly talk. The reasons for these walks are prioritized and executed accordingly. 1. Therapy 2. Exercise. If there … Read More
