New Friends ... THANKS BLOGGINGLAD !!!

(Kelly, Kristy, Me, and Kasey ... I am the stinky one in the workout clothes ...!!!)


I can't tell you what a blessing blogging has been to my life, at first it was just a way to keep in touch w/ our Pingjiang Families. We wanted to keep our girls in contact w/ each other and we became our own unique family. I can honestly say that the blog world was a life line for me the minute we choose Maggie from the COP list ... You have encouraged me, prayed w/ me and for me and at times after bringing my sweet, spicy girl home you were my only outside contact and support ... I praise God for how He uses you in my life ...

Now on to the super, cool, amazing encounter w/ my new friends ... Kristy, Kelly, and I stumbled across each other in blogland the way most people do by just going from a friends blog to another and another and another ... We started emailing and finally had a play date yesterday ... Can I just say instant friendship .... We talked non-stop from 11-3 and could have talked for two days ... They have amazing stories to share and their heart for Ethiopia and the people hurting in their community captured me ... They also had their younger sister there (Kasey) and she also wants to adopt from Ethiopia ... What an amazing legacy these sisters are going to leave.... I can't wait to get together again ....Thank you ladies for embracing me and allowing me to ride along on your journeys ...

Lord, you have blessed so many of us during our adoption journey by sending us strangers that know our hearts and encourage our spirits !!! This is just another reason why I feel THE BOOK is going to be a tool the Lord uses to change people's hearts for adoption and send some people on a the journey of a lifetime ... (reminder Aug. 1 deadline .. contact me w/ questions s.oatsvall@comcast.net)

HAVE A FABULOUSLY BLESSED DAY !!!
