On Adoption

You may or may not have noticed a slight change to the blog... Do you see it? Look closely..

Okay, you probably can't tell but it's actually a VERY significant change. I have switched out the part that says "Looking to Adopt" from Joe's brother and his wife to one of my good friends, Julie, and her husband, Landon. This is for two very good reasons.

First off, without saying too much, Joe's brother and his wife adopted TWO little girls!!! And they are adorable. Really, so cute.. but you are going to have to trust me on that because I haven't gotten their permission to post pictures yet. I mean, SO cute though.

And aside from the fact that reason number one left an empty spot in the old side bar, reason number two is because my friend Julie is AMAZING. This one you don't have to just trust me on because you can click on their picture and find out for yourself!


They are truly the cutest, greatest couple and they will be incredible parents. And, I hope this is okay Julie, but I just have to put a link to the blog post about your experience thus far. (click here) They had actually been selected earlier this year but had the most heartbreaking outcome. In all the years that adoption has been on my radar I have NEVER even thought that this could happen. You'll have to read it because I could never tell it like Julie does.

Anyhow, adoption is very close to my heart as I now have three adopted nieces and one adopted nephew. It is truly a miracle and a blessing to be a witness to this process. If any of you know anyone who could benefit from seeing their profile please share, share, share. It is rare that a couple gets randomly selected through their profile. It's usually through a friend of a friend of a friend. So keep your eyes and ears open!

What a profound story. I haven't shared this with you yet, but my sister and her husband or waiting for their little girl to be born any day now - through the blessing of adoption. It has been 8 years of deep yearning, trial, tears and faith. Tremendous faith. I can't begin to explain what it all has done to my own faith and my trust in His timing. I love the simple words, "And God remembered Rachel." This couple will have their beautiful children. He is mindful of them even now as they wait. I just know it.
Love you!
