A dream come true.

Becky MorquechoAdoption, Waiting2 Comments

We were living in La Jolla at the time. Jesse and I were bike riding fiends. Beach cruising is one of our all-time favorite things to do. Pedaling and pedaling till your quads tingle and your shoulders are tan. The ocean air on your skin and in your lungs. The … 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

What this is all about anyway.

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.

Becky MorquechoAdoption, Waiting10 Comments

It’s the end of an era. A bittersweet, I may have cried just a little, end of an era. The only time I can think of that is sort of similar is when Jesse quit his job at the hospital and we both became full-time entrepreneurs. We had been talking … Read More

Her first shirt from Target.

Oh fine, refine me.

“Adoption is so hard,” they said. Such a long process. So many ups and downs. That’s what so many people said when we told them. But at that point, after years of uncertainty, finally I felt so strong and grounded. Solid. Unwavering. Like a hurricane of wretched everything could sweep … Read More

Alpaca laughs + pit stops.

Becky MorquechoAdoption, Waiting1 Comment

We were driving south, windows down, as usual. A stop here, a stop there, for us to stretch our legs, but mostly for Jesse to fly his drone. We were in somewhat of a hurry, wanting to make it to the Cascade Lakes area as quickly as we could. We … Read More

The day my heart caught up.

Becky MorquechoAdoption, Infertility, Surrender21 Comments

October 1st, 2015. One year ago today. We were cruising north in our rental car, jamming to T-Swift (as always) and I turned down the music and turned to Jesse. If I would have had my FitBit on, I’d have proof of my skyrocketed heart rate. I couldn’t believe what … Read More
