When You Fall Off The Horse...

Even though our original adoption plans didn't work out as we had hoped, we have decided to "get back in the saddle" and try again.

Many months ago, I deleted our adoption blog.  I have spent half the night trying to build another one.  Luckily for us, the blog address that we had used previously was available again!

I wanted to approach it differently this time.  This new design is an extension of our profile on It's About  I won't be posting on it very often.  I will mostly just be adding photos and information.

So, my friends, we are asking that you please help us spread the word that we are hoping to adopt.  If you would like to link our adoption blog to yours, please feel free.

Our adoption blog address is:

Thank you for all the support you have shown us.

Much Love,

If You Need Anything, Just Let Me Know...

How many times in our lives have we said the words: "If you need anything, just let me know" to friends or family members that are going through a difficult time?  I have said those words many times.

Yesterday, a friend in need called me and took me up on that offer that I had made to her just a few days ago.  I have to say, I was so glad she did.

In our church, we are taught that if you are having troubles of your own, serve your fellow man.  I know that may sound weird to some folks, but I tested that theory today and, it's true.  I have been down about our failed adoption, and it is so easy to hide myself away and become a hermit, letting my heart be consumed by sadness over this.  My friend calling me was the smack upside the head that I needed to remind me that other people are going through trials and have needs too.

In the midst of helping her today, it gave me a reprieve from my sorrows and gave me a resolve to look for opportunities to serve others.

So, if you ever need anything, just let me know....
