It's like being published in "Martha Stewart Magazine"--only better--it's not about "home-making tips" it's about "Making-homes-for-children without one - tips". One family at a time.
This website was the vision of a very special friend that you've heard me mention many times, our story here, on my blog--Kelly--she sent us the picture of Izabella hoping she might be our daughter--the night before our agency called with a referral to the same little girl! God uses this faithful christian woman in ways that are so deeply moving.
If you've adopted, waiting or paper-chasing, thinking about adoption as a way of growing your family, or even if you're just curious about all the ups, downs, twists and turns of adoption--this site is one you'll want to follow--it will not disappoint you, it is sure to move you, you will occasionally find some comfort when you read a post from a mom that's feeling the same way you are--and you thought you were alone. It will enlighten ALL. It's a very spiritual site that advocates for orphans--just as God calls us to do. As he laid on my heart to do.
Today--I am honored to have a post--published on this site. I am humbled, honored and blessed with this--truly. Deeply.
Visit and see us today--on this special site.
AND just cause pictures of our Izabella is what most really want to see--and the published post is titled "Mommy"...here's a picture of our Izabella and I during a visit with our very, very special friends Shayna, Stella, and Zophia.
Shayna and I have been friends since 1995--However, I actually knew her family before I knew her (when she was assigned to work with me from our West Union Headquarters office--in our WDM office--she was my marketing assistant.) Since then--her family has become like my second family--before I met and married Dan and brought home Izabella--and I love them all dearly--and they are so good to me--as I have moved through some very important milestones in my life--they are always there for me/us now.
Needless to say--we were friends when we were both single, we'd often talk about getting married and having a family. I about adoption, of course. We talked about how it would be so great to have children the same age to play and grow up together. Of course we don't have control of such timing--but as God would have it--Zophia was born in February of 2006. As the years rolled by--it was looking less likely we'd realize that wish. A year later--we started our journey to adopt Izabella from China--3 years later we brought home a 28 month old daughter--that is just over a year younger than Shayna's Daughter Zophia. So...it always moves me--when we get together and I see the girls play. God is sooo good.
