Yard Sale Week!

Our yard sale for the adoption is this Saturday and I feel like I have a million things to do! Which is why I’m thankful to have so many friends and family helping us out. After school, I made signs with Alison. And now Jeremy and I are headed to meet Taylor J. at Ameris … Continue reading

Just to be clear…

Just to be clear…

Adoption is not a means by which to get pregnant. Nor is it Plan B. Adoption was God’s Plan A for us from the start. We just didn’t realize it for a while. We have all heard the stories of couples who tried to get pregnant for years and couldn’t. They decide to adopt, and BAM,  they are finally … Continue reading

Day Trip to B’ham

Day Trip to B’ham

As I said on Facebook this morning, I’m not sure why the expression is “bright and early”, because there is certainly nothing bright about waking up at 5 a.m. and being on the road by 6. Jeremy said there are lots of people up at this time and headed to work. But I am not … Continue reading

Look What Came in the Mail Yesterday!

I didn’t want to risk overkill since I had posted yesterday and shared the link on Facebook. So I decided to wait until today to share this photo. I apologize that it’s kinda vague, but I didn’t think I needed to post all our identifying info on the internet. 🙂 Anyway, the letter is from Homeland … Continue reading

Hoping For An Early Christmas

Hoping For An Early Christmas

Jeremy and I recently mailed in applications in the hopes that we will receive some grant money for our adoption. They are both awarded around mid-December. And what a Christmas it would be if we were to receive one (or both) of them! The first grant we applied for was through Help Us Adopt. Jeremy actually found them through a Google … Continue reading

Prayers Appreciated

Prayers Appreciated

In the world of adoption, there are so many factors that us adoptive parents have no control over. And that’s an extremely hard place to be in some days. Your prayers are coveted by us. I feel like I can speak not only for Jeremy and me, but Alison and Stephen and Carla and Clint … Continue reading
