I just love these t-shirts friends of ours were selling to raise money for supplies for an orphanage in Congo. Our kids were so excited about them that they bought them with their own money. I love their sweet hearts and their hearts towards orphans.
We are all also VERY excited about the adoption of our newest cousin!! We have all been praying for years for this precious girl and are in awe of all that God has done. Here is the back story ..It truly is His story.
Please join us in praying for a swift Visa process so Mercy-Brian can be HOME at last.
Also, dear friends of ours have begun their journey to adopt from Colombia.
They have an Etsy shop where they are fundraising and selling these awesome shoes.
Last night at TKD there was a beautiful and multi-cultural family. I sat there for an hour an a half debating whether or not to ask them where their sweet children were from. I texted Jim and got his opinion and asked our 17 year old son if I should ask. They were both like, "Just do it!" Ha! I was so nervous and didn't want to offend. I finally got up the nerve to initiate a conversation and low and behold two of their children came home from China and they used Madison Adoption Associates too. The mom and I had an awesome hour long conversation about all things adoption. I was so blessed and encouraged by her heart and testimony. Her too cute for words son was so funny. He said, "Hey, I have an idea you give my Mom your number and she can give you hers and then you can talk about all of this on the phone." Love it.
If you are an adoptive family do you encounter other adoptive families and do you ask "The Question"??
