Friends for Adoption is a "buddy system" that links adopting families together so that they can encourage each other through the twists and turns of the process. Each month, you and your Friend send and receive encouragements (with a $15.00 limit) in the mail. This post is about my gift to Brooke. Even though my husband and I are saving up for our own adoption, we believe we should support others financially, with prayer, and with encouragement as we are able. Find out more about Friends for Adoption, including how to sign up, here.
Happy December 1st! I love this month, but before we jump into all of its adventures, I have one last little moment from November to share with you. Last month was a busy one, with another His Hands baby going home, decorating projects, Thanksgiving, and, of course, musings about the adoption process. It was also incredibly busy for Brooke, with a fundraiser, adoption law changes, and agency changes. So, I decided going simple would be good for both of us, and sent her something I knew she would enjoy.
A gift card to Starbucks! I don't actually drink coffee, but I know that those who love it, realllllly love it. I imagine it to be a relationship similar to my relationship with hot chocolate in bed after a long day. Yum.
What did Brooke get me? It's adorable! Hop on over to her blog to find out!
Also, this post is a reminder to all of you involved in Friends for Adoption...it's now December! Which means you have 2 weeks to get your encouraging gift/letter/package of smiles ($15 or less) in the mail to your Friend!
