  • Birthdays.
    on Mar 6, 2010 in 5 months Brian Birthdays Milestones
    Today Sylvia turns 5 months, and Brian turns 26! We celebrated by going out and watching the MU vs. kU game - which didn't end up being much of a celebration. The jayhawks have to make up somehow for having such a lame mascot, so who can really bla...
  • Faking it.
    on Mar 5, 2010 in Mr. Popp kids joy Brian Jesus God Faking
    I liked this idea.When I read blogs it does usually seem a little like the fake side of the person writing. Like it's their happy side, or their clever side, or the 'who people think I should be' side. I try to be real on this blog. I try to be op...
  • How to Help.Some changes happening here at the blog.Thanks mostly to my wonderful and patient husband.I would like the blog to be more helpful than just sharing our experience as foster parents (although I'd really like that to be helpful too!). I'm working on...
  • Project 365 - Week 4
    on Mar 2, 2010 in Sylvia Project 365 Craft Popp
    A little late on the pictures this week - blogger was being weird and wouldn't let me post them on Sunday.We bought this exer-saucer for Sylvie (and the ten kids who will use it after her) and ever since I've been taking the toys off of it one by one...
  • Push-oversI got an e-mail today from our worker letting me know that she has changed our profile in the system so that intake can tell we are open for placements. I was wondering what act of God had kept our phone from ringing off the hook for the last week a...
  • Heart. Of. Stone.I have a heart of stone. I don't get attached. What? I don't shed tears over children leaving our home. Coming, going, what's the difference? Right? I was actually born without a limbic cortex. That's not true. I do have a limbic cortex.I am pa...
  • A beautiful mess.
    on Feb 26, 2010 in Popp Messes
    As I was vacuuming yesterday, I noticed something about my house that just didn't seem quite right. I went through the living room and the vacuum didn't pick up any cheerios or raisins. I didn't have to pick all the books up off the floor and put t...
  • God's Heart
    on Feb 25, 2010 in video Adoption Fostering Foster Care God
    Love this video. I am so excited for the day that we are able to adopt one (or more!) of our foster children. But until then we'll foster! Foster parenting definitely doesn't get the air time that adoption does, but it is so important. Children i...
  • In Confidence...I've gotten a few e-mails as of late about confidentiality and limits on the blog. This is a great question.Until fairly recently, the only people who read our blog were family and very close friends - people who knew our kids anyway. So I wasn't s...
  • A Letter for my Boy.
    on Feb 22, 2010 in X-Man goodbye God
    My Sweet Boy, You left last night, and it is just so quiet here. Sylvie and I don't fill up our home all by ourselves quite like you did. I already miss you, and everything reminds me of you. It seems there is a hole in my heart where you resided...
