Girls morning out!

Yesterday, Sophie and I had a girls morning out! We dropped the boys off at Grammy's house and then headed up town to visit daddy.

The bank where Shane works was hosting it's annual adoption expo. Several agencies along with CAS (the agency we used) were on hand to pass out information and answer questions concerning adoption.

We spent some time at CAS's booth, talking with potential parents and answering, as best we could, their questions concerning the adoption process. I remember being in their same shoes just a few years ago. It was actually at this same adoption fair, two years earlier, where Shane and I began our adoption quest. I remember being full of questions and feeling overwhelmed by the process. I pray that as these couples we met yesterday embark on their own adoption adventure they would be filled with peace. I pray they would walk this journey with confidence, trusting that the Lord has the PERFECT child picked out for them!

Looking back now though I can't think of anything that grew us more as a couple
or brought our family more joy!!!

Speaking of adoption...

I got the most exciting call from one of my sweetest friends yesterday. Jessica and her family received some much anticipated news!!!!! Go here to read about it and share in their excitement!!!!! God is so good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a great opportunity to talk about adoption. I think it is great for people hoping to adopt to be able to talk to people who have had such a blessing already!

I read your friends post and had goosebumps! I am so excited for them and I will keep them in my prayers.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

It is so neat to see where God brings people. Who would have guessed all things blessing from God, even just a few years ago. He is good!

I love your blog! You have a gorgeous family and your little Sophie is a doll! YAY for girl time and these are great pictures!

Your little girl is beautiful! I am also interested in domestic adoption, I am so glad it has worked out so wonderfully for your family. Do you have an open adoption, or closed? I am open to either, but I was just wondering....

God bless!!
