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.
Friends for Adoption is all about support...thank you all for the encouragement and excitement over our first decree! We eagerly anticipate our final decree...hopefully within the next two weeks! Obviously though, I would not complain if it came tonight ;-)
Hot Chocolate, fires, hikes, and a new fall garden...hello October! So ready to get cozy with you. And Levi. But before we do, let's chat about September's Friend for Adoption gift.
This month, I have been thinking a lot about Taiwan, the special, special place Levi was born. So when it came time to find something that would encourage Brooke in her new motherhood, I discovered this etsy store which makes personalized onesies.
With the heart over Addie's birthplace, and Addie's birth mother, it couldn't be more perfect.
Once again, Brooke got me something really sweet...and ironically, also tied to Levi's birth (hint hint...he's a year of the dragon baby).
Also, this post is a reminder to all of you involved in Friends for Adoption...it's now October! Which means you have 2 weeks to get your encouraging gift/letter/package of smiles ($15 or less) in the mail to your Friend! I actually just put my October AND November gifts in the mail...I think I am about to get really busy!
