A Blessing Shower

Here at New Beginnings we get to work with both gals who are placing for adoption and gals who are parenting. One of the very special things that we get to be a part of is blessing showers! For those who might not be familiar with a blessing shower, it is similar to a baby shower BUT its for women who are making a plan for adoption. So the adoptive family throw this blessing shower for the birth mother. The adoptive family and all their friends surround the birth mother to celebrate her, give her gifts, pray over her, and speak life and truth and hope into her life. It is a very special time and something we feel so blessed to be a part of. A few weeks ago we got to host a blessing shower for one of our residents, enjoy the pictures below and celebrate this amazing mama with us!


A few weeks ago one of our residents found out she is going to have a BOY!! We kept it a secret from the rest of the house and we did a gender reveal for her. It was a blast to put together, and we are so glad we got to celebrate with her. We are so excited for this mama and her precious boy.

Baby Bath Time!

On a cold rainy Washington day there is nothing more cheery and adorable than baby bath time! In the kitchen sink overlooking our cute little farm, one of our lovely mamas is giving her little one a bath <3 so precious and peaceful. We are always so proud of how our residents have grown in to amazing mothers to their littles! These precious bonding moments are part of why we do what we do! Enjoy this peek into our daily life:

New Beginnings~A Prayer

There is something about snow that reminds me of fresh starts and new beginnings. I came across this poem recently, and we used it in a family devotion a few weeks back. It is so perfect for New Beginnings Home, and really for each one of us. It really touched our hearts and I hope it touches yours!

"Help Me to Believe in Beginnings"

God of history and of my heart,
so much has happened to me during these whirlwind days:
   I've known death and birth;
   I've been brave and scared;
   I've hurt, I've helped;
   I've been honest, I've lied;
   I've destroyed, I've created;
   I've been with people, I've been lonely;
   I've been loyal, I've betrayed;
   I've decided, I've waffled;
   I've laughed and I’ve cried.
You know my frail heart and my frayed history -
and now another day begins.

O God, help me to believe in beginnings
and in my beginning again,
no matter how often I've failed before.

Help me to make beginnings:
  to begin going out of my weary mind into fresh dreams,
    daring to make my own bold tracks in the land of now;
  to begin forgiving
    that I might experience mercy;
  to begin questioning the unquestionable
    that I may know truth;
  to begin disciplining
    that I might create beauty;
  to begin sacrificing
    that I may accomplish justice;
  to begin risking
    that I may make peace;
  to begin loving
    that I may realize joy.

Help me to be a beginning for others,
   to be a singer to the songless,
   a storyteller to the aimless,
   a befriender of the friendless;
to become a beginning of hope for the despairing,
   of assurance for the doubting,
   of reconciliation for the divided;
to become a beginning of freedom for the oppressed,
   of comfort for the sorrowing,
   of friendship for the forgotten;
to become a beginning of beauty for the forlorn,
   of sweetness for the soured,
   of gentleness for the angry,
   of wholeness for the broken,
   of peace for the frightened and violent of the earth.

Help me to believe in beginnings,
  to make a beginning,
    to be a beginning,
so that I may not just grow old,
  but grow new
each day of this wild, amazing life
  you call me to live
    with the passion of Jesus Christ."
