February Swap

Posted by Angie at 7:02 AM
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

Wow, what a month Brooke has had!  A month ago today we were praying and dreaming.  Now, she is a mother with a beautiful baby girl!  Her blog has all the details. 

So what do you give a girl who has received the best gift of all?  Well, I had something made...but it was delivered to her home, so it will be waiting for them when they get home from the hospital and will count as the March swap! 

So for February, my mom was a sweetheart and visited Brooke in the hospital!  As you may remember, Brooke's baby was born in my hometown.  My mom went by earlier this month to give Brooke a couple little pink baby outfits and spread a little cheer!  Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures, but that is what we are counting as the "February Swap."  My mom had a wonderful time!  As you can imagine, she loved buying pink ;-)

Brooke sent me the most adorable bookmark that says "Aunt" on it.  As you can imagine, it made me a little teary!  

So, this post is a reminder to all of you involved in Friends for's now March!  Which means you have 2 weeks to get your encouraging gift/letter/package of smiles ($15 or less) in the mail to your Friend!   Wow...March...will this be the month we get our own referral?

Much love,
Future Mama
