“The deepest losses offer the widest openings for us to receive the miracles in our midst.”

I have been privileged to see adoption in my families lives, however, Josh and I will soon be able to experience this first hand. As you may know, 5 weeks ago our adoption profile was published online. We are hoping that by spreading the word about our desire to adopt, we will find the child meant to join our family.

My excitement at the prospect of being an adoptive parent grows every day and my awe for the birth mothers I know does as well. I love everything about adoption and have such a love for everyone that is involved in this truly selfless process.

We set up an adoption blog so please feel free to refer anyone to it that might be interested in learning more about us. Josh, Oakland and I know that there is a little miracle out there for our family and we talk about this sweet spirit(s) so often. We are thrilled about this process and hope that you can help us build our family through adoption!

   My Sister-In-Law showed me this video and I absolutely love it.

I'm so excited to be able to comment on your blog and you know who I am! :) I am SO excited for you to be able to adopt! What a sweet time in your lives. Your little Oakland will be such a sweet big sister! She was so cute playing with my little Sadie on Sunday. I have been reading your blog for several years now! It's such a small world that I finally get to know you in person! You are such a sweet, strong and inspiring family. I love that I get to know you other than reading your blog! I just watched all the videos of your sweet Mac again. I had tears in my eyes. What a special boy. I feel such a love for someone I never knew! Thank you for being such an inspiring writer and now for being a friend. I can't wait to get to know you more! I am rooting for you! I will help spread the word for adoption! Hugs!!
