and for some reason that reminds me A LOT of the 1990's.
maybe that's when it started?
maybe it's because secretly in my head, Jazzercise is Zumba's ugly cousin.
anyways, i digress.
I WENT because my new friend Heatheris also adopting, but from Ethiopia,
and tonight's class supported their adoption process.
heather and friends after class
they are adopting baby Arthur and were matched with him just two weeks ago,
and they waited more than a year for a match!
now, they are waiting on a court date to go to Africa.
we have been able to share so much together in such a short time, and i love their precious family.
she's been a great friend to get to know.
and our adoption update?
well, i've thought about giving you guys an update several times, but it just isn't the right time yet.
i'm not trying to be secrative, but i don't think i'm quite ready to share the newer details with the whole of the intranet yet. :)
so, thanks for being patient and thanks for your prayers.
i will just say, it's been a much different process than we ever imagined and we have some big decisions and possible changes to make and we're still in the thick of it, so i'll share more when we know more and make a decision.
i had to wait a while for the supplies to come in from the vendor, but they arrived last weekend
and ta da!
a couple new lovlies are born.
i don't want to be that friend that keeps saying, give give give. buy buy buy.
i'm totally aware that can be annoying.
and the Lord continually reminds me, I need to be giving of myself and time as well.
so, no pressure friends.
but if you're interested i'd love for you to hop on over to the love is rising etsy shop, take a look around and if you like, make a purchase for you (or a friend) and help us be one step closer to bringing our sweet baby home.
here are some of the lovlies i posted this weekend.
