Waiting for the little things
Adoption is a lot of waiting as you can tell by now but we are not just waiting for the big events of receiving a phone call, making a relationship with a birth mother, having our child born, bringing them home and then finalizing our adoption.
As we continue to wait for the moment that we hold our child in our arms, we continue to trust God's timing.
We are waiting for the little things like every expecting parents. Todd and I had the joy of going to the beach with our friends this week and when we got home we both were like "we can't wait to bring our child to the beach with friends and family!"
Todd and I are celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary this weekend so we went to celebrate by seeing Brave, the Pixar movie, and in there was a ton of kids and families. We so enjoyed all the little kids laughing and talking about what they were experiencing. We can not wait to take our child to the movies, to have them enjoy the simple things of life and to have the joys of being a child with loving parents.
We continue to work on paying off our adoption loan through dedication, amazing gifts from people, and selling our tee shirts and coffee! If you are wanting to buy a shirt, today is a great day for that and we so appreciate all who have bought shirts and supported us in our adoption.
Todd and I have been going through our house in preparation for our next fundraiser... A YARD SALE! We are going to be having a yard sale at our house on Saturday, July 28 from 8 am to 2 pm. We will be selling all kinds of stuff and some of our friends are donating items too. So stop by, get some great deals and support our adoption! Hope to see you at our Yard Sale on July 28!
