Surrounded by Love

God has surrounded our family with AMAZING people.  This process of adoption has been a really difficult one.  We've had emotional highs and lows.  I have gone to family and friends in tears because of disappointment and I have gone to them in celebration of a new step toward bringing our son home.  And now we are facing a new challenge of being away from my husband, my kids away from their daddy.  It has only been 6 days and we have 6 months to go.  But we are doing alright, we are getting through it because of the people we are surrounded by.  I am amazed by the true, genuine nature that some people have.  I have witnessed some truly selfless acts of kindness and am so overwhelmed by the love.

We recieved an annonymous note about a month ago with a donation towards our adoption.  I am still in awe of the selflessness and kindness that it took to give that gift to our family.  If you are reading this, thank you for this gift of helping us bring our son home. Big hugs to you and your family.  We will never forget it. 

Thank you to everyone who has been there for us emotionally.  Your kind and understanding words and prayers have gotten us this far!  Thank you all who have taken care of our family, fed us, watched our dogs, and babysat our kids (you know who you all are).  From the bottom of my heart, Thank you!!  Love and Blessings to you all.
