It Takes a Village

It takes a village to adopt a child. This thought keeps running through my head these days  as we (hopefully?) approach the day when we hold our daughter in our arms. We don't live anywhere even remotely near family, so we have to rely on neighbors and friends to help us with our needs. And they sure have volunteered. We have good friends who will be caring for our three kids along with their three while we are gone. We have other friends and neighbors who have volunteered to make meals for the family and our kids. Still others will be helping with school bus pick up, watching one or two of the kids periodically to give our friends a break, and checking in with our friends and kids. Friends and Bible study members have donated money and items for our daughter's orphanage. Countless friends and family members near and far have been lifting us and our situation up in prayer daily. Others have dropped off a card at just the right time- that day when we hear that we STILL have not received a visa. Others drop off brownies to console. Whatever the gesture is, it is so meaningful to us. It shows us that people care not only for us but for our daughter and our children already at home. We are so blessed to have our village. 


About Me

I am a sinner who has been chosen by God and redeemed by the death and resurrection of his son Jesus. I am a full-time wife and mom, though I hope to someday return to my job as an SLP. I love photography, coffee, reading, and adoption. I hate to clean, but sometimes do it anyway!
