Foster Care Update :)

It's been a while since I posted anything about our sweet little guys. Probably because there is very little I can post, haha. Several of you have asked questions on Instagram (@rufflesandstuff) so I thought I'd post an update!

So, we still don't know anything. Haha! For either case.
"Ace" has been with us for almost 14 months now and is starting to stand by himself, yay! He'll be walking in no time, which will be crazy. Two of them walking! Yikes! He says "Mama" and "Dada" and "num". He's happy playing by himself or with other kids, but he's not into physical affection much. I try to respect that, but it's SO HARD! If you could see his cute little face!! He's equal parts charmer and whiney pants and he's very smart. We adore him. :o)

Baby "B" (aka "Curly Fry") is the sweetest little boy in the world. He had such a rough beginning with us and for months he just cried and didn't sleep and just seemed sad. But he has developed into such kind hearted, easy-going kid. If any of the other babies at church cry, "B" will walk over and pat their heads or hand them a toy. It's so sweet! He's very snuggly and affectionate. He does so well, in spite of being unsettled still. His mother is very involved and he sees her a lot, which is wonderful! I am really praying that she is able to be reunited with him. Especially since, if she isn't able to, the chances of us being able to keep him would be very slim. I can't even bring myself to think of him being uprooted and placed with strangers after all this time. If you could say a prayer for his situation and his mother, I would really appreciate it.

Our little family is doing well, though! We love these little guys so much. They are such a blessing to us, even when they make me feel like I'm losing it. :O) It's hard to imagine life without them.

SO! On a totally different note, I wanted to say thank you so much to Steph, from A Silly Pearl (Handmade) for doing a great review post of my book! Click over to see her ADORABLE twin girls modeling her project. (Thanks, Steph!!)
My supply is limited for giving away physical copies of the book, but if any of you have a blog and would like a free copy of the ebook to review/post about, I would be happy to provide that for you! Just shoot me an email.

Have a lovely day, everyone!


  1. Isn't that funny as this morning I was thinking of you and wondering if you still had both boys as you hadn't mentioned 'Curly Fry' for a while. Of course I will pray for him and his Mum that God will do a great work in their lives beyond what we could even imagine. You are a very kind person Disney, as foster care isn't easy but you are laying a foundation for these little boys that can never be underestimated.

  2. Thank you so much! I do try to really limit what I say about Curly Fry on the blog or social media because I feel kind of weird about sharing anything when I don't have mom's permission. Ace, on the other hand, has no involvement from either of his parents, and never really has, so it's a little bit different situation. But yes, they are both still with us, and are both doing great! :O)

  3. You and your husband are heroes.
    Your example is badly needed and so welcome.
