Today was bittersweet. As I was pricing and organizing for our garage sale we got a call from our agency to tell us that the little boy we were hoping to adopt is going to be adopted by another family. We knew this was a possibility but when I heard them say he wasn't going to be ours I realized how much I had believed he would be. So I looked at his picture on our fridge and said good-bye with some tears, thankful for his precious role in this journey. He will always be a part of this story. We have trusted that this is all God's plan and not ours so we are still pressing on with adoption and are still very excited to see what God has in store! He knows our family and our hearts and tonight I just have to trust...

Kingswood Rummage Fundraiser

I just wanted to quickly post that we will be having a garage sale the week of the famous Kingswood Rummage, April 26-30, and all the proceeds will be going toward adopting our little guy! We would appreciate any help we could get, but especially need manpower and baked goods to sell. So if you would be willing to give a couple hours of your time that week to either come and work at the garage sale or bake something yummy to sell (or donate snacks from Sam's Club!) we would be so grateful! I assume if you are close enough to help you also know how to get ahold of me so I don't have to post all my contact info for all the world to see =) We also welcome donations! Thank you so much for helping us raise the funds to adopt! No new news by the way - it will be awhile I think but I will keep you posted!
