Just a reminder

So, I feel the need to once again remind everyone that we need your help in our adoption efforts. Your prayers and thoughtful discussion of adoption to those around you are vital. I don't know who the Lord wants us to bring home, but I know He expects us (and you) to keep searching! If nothing else, you will plant the seeds of adoption in those around you and encourage them to educate themselves.

We love adoption. Without adoption I would not be here (thank you for placing my Daddy, Grandma Hazel. I love you!), and our kids would certainly not be with us. The landscape of our lives would look so differently without the miracle of adoption.

So, be prayerful, be thoughtful, be sensitive. And be an advocate for this amazing thing called adoption. And if you have questions about how to discuss adoption or questions about adoption, this is the place to bring it up! I have awesome resources and a wealth of knowledge ate my finger tips (I'm connected with so many great people through adoption. So blessed!), and I am happy to pick their brains to help. And they are happy to help. :)

Love to all of you, my readers! ;) Have a great weekend!


  1. This is a good reminder for me, too. I feel like I've asked so much from everyone, and yet it's been a long time since I've asked. I'm pulling for you!

  2. We will keep praying for you everyday. I know that when we lost Emmett we had so many people pray for us and it really helped, but it took time. We were talking about prayer in Sunday School today and they asked the question "Does God ever NOT answer our prayers?" He ALWAYS answers our prayers its just that sometimes his answer is not what we want at the moment. Sometimes his answer is just "wait." He knows what is best for us and when we need certain things in our lives. Hang in there! Someday you will say a prayer and the answer will no longer be "wait" or "not now." You can make it! I love you guys!

  3. Thanks, LeMira and Brook. Yes, the "Not yet" answers are hard. But I feel like we've been available as a "plan B" in a few instances, so I'm feeling really good about that right now. That if we had been called upon, we would have been ready to bring those children home. :)So being homestudy ready and searching 3 years hasn't been for nothing.
