Tomorrow we’ll be walking for adoption. We’ll be walking in honor of  Sam’s birthparents. We’ll be walking in celebration of our family. We’ll be walking in gratitude for the HOPE that adoption brings.

 

Rumor has it that a certain boy will be wearing a superman costume as his way of celebrating the day.  Jon and I will be wearing orange. It is the adoption color…which is my favorite color.

 

Hope to see you there!

National Adoption Month! November 3, 2010

November is National Adoption Month! This picture was taken seconds after I met Sam and his beautiful birthmom for the first time. Pure joy, pure love, pure delicious curly-haired sweet-smelling heaven.  We were lucky to spend a lot of time with Sam’s birthmom in the hospital. She is the one who taught me to change a diaper. She taught me how to feed Sam. She taught me how to take care of her sweet baby. Most of all, she taught me so much about love.

Love you Holly & Greg! You are loved, appreciated and remembered every single day. XOXOX!
