Another year finished, a step closer to Ph.D Mommy!

It’s humbling to realize that 20 years ago… I walked into this building as an exchange student… Today… I am finishing another year as a Ph.D student!  Truly humbling that an exchange student whose English was so broken back then… is now finishing her Ph.D in speech language pathology out of all the field 🙂

The journey has been hard… but God has always been faithful!! 🙂

This song “What faith can do” “What Faith Can Do” by Kutless was playing in the car right after I found out about my scholarship assuring me that this is what God wants me to do 🙂

Everybody falls sometimes
Gotta find the strength to rise
From the ashes
And make a new beginningAnyone can feel the ache
You think it’s more than you can take
But you’re stronger
Stronger than you knowDon’t you give up now
The sun will soon be shining
You gotta face the clouds
To find the silver liningI’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard
Impossible is not a word
It’s just a reason
For someone not to try

Everybody’s scared to death
When they decide to take that step
Out on the water
It’ll be alright

Life is so much more
Than what your eyes are seeing
You will find your way
If you keep believing

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do

Overcome the odds
You don’t have a chance
(That’s what faith can do)
When the world says you can’t
It’ll tell you that you can

I’ve seen dreams that move the mountains
Hope that doesn’t ever end
Even when the sky is falling
And I’ve seen miracles just happen
Silent prayers get answered
Broken hearts become brand new
That’s what faith can do
That’s what faith can do

Even if you fall sometimes
You will have the strength to rise

Cheers,
I-M Mommy

The travellers

Hello…. Since this is the first post… I will introduce the travellers who are along in this journey with me!

It’s me, the I-M mommy.

I-M stands for immigrant if you haven’t figure it out yet 🙂

I love kids and working with kids.  However, that doesn’t say that my patience is endless (ask my kiddos).

Mr. Hubby… Well, let’s think that he was looking at me. He is wonderful in every sense of the word.  I don’t know how I would be able to go through school and life in general without him next to me.

This is ” G” . He is very artistic and musical.  A great dancer, a musician and a smart boy.  He is 11 years old and is getting into that difficult teenage year of “talking back” sometimes. Overall, he is an awesome and very loving boy that want to become a veterinarian.

This is S.T! The coolest boy in the house!  He is left handed and always think outside the box!  He LOVES lego.  He has so much creative juice in his brain that he creates stuff around the house constantly!  From paper, pen, broken pieces of toys, etc… He said he wants to work for lego someday! Oh by the way, he always says the darndest things!

Here is Mei mei!  She acts like a princess!  A super smart girl that can be a little spoil sometime 🙂 Our fault in part 🙂

She loves pink and purple, princesses and princes, castle and jewelry.. I think we are in trouble because she loves SHOPPING but she also loves to read!
