OPRAH WATCH OUT ...

I am going to be on ONTHEHOMESTRETCH.COM live on Sunday @ 10 AM talking about adoption ... Debbie Alan is local TV personality and just a super sweet woman ... I have been seeing her at the YMCA lately and of course you can't help but noticing my two Asian beauties running and screaming up/down the hallways when we go like they own the place ... She stopped me one day and asked me Maggie's story, so I shared and she asked me to share on her show about adoption ... Well you all know me ... When some says ADOPTION my ears perk up and I can talk for hours (well, I can talk for hours anyway) ... Let's pray that someone listening will feel the calling from the Lord to step out into FAITH and begin the adoption process ...

BOOK UPDATE .... story #2 has come in and I get amazed every time ... If you are just reading this for the first time I am putting together a book ... Scroll down to read the post or email me for details (s.oatsvall@comcast.net)

SIL UPDATE ... Just talked w/ MIL and SIL says Malawi won't process the visa till the American hard copy paperwork arrives, so we are looking at a travel home date of somewhere between April 17th ... Please continue to pray for her !!!!

First time to comment...woohoo!

I'm so happy you're going live! You've already touched the lives of so many APs, so I can't imagine how many others will be touched when they hear your story.

Started writing our adoption story today (although that 1000 word limit is messing me up...lol). Can't wait to get a copy of the book!

See Gwen...this 1,000 word stuff is tough for others, too!!! :) God is surely doing some Mighty stuff in all our families!!!!

AND SUNDAY.....you just speak His words!!!! I can't wait to hear how others are moved by what you will say!!!

Be Blessed,
Diane

How exciting that so many more will be blessed and touched by your adoption story!! I certainly will be praying that many take a U-turn about adoption after hearing the journey to get your sweet little ones here.

Anita said...

I emailed you and hope you received as my email has been goofy lately. We wanted to contribute Kaylin's story to your book too if you still need more families. Just let us know. And can't wait to hear how the interview goes.....I KNOW it will be wonderful and what a God-moment to have handed to you!! WOW!! Hugs! ~Anita (another COP Momma)
