Connected by God ...


The first time I ever meet Emily (far left)was the night before I left to go to China to pick up Maggie ... We sat on Suzanne's bed w/ a couple more sweet friends and we prayed for my trip... I instantly felt connected to this woman ... We had been emailing and blogging for a few months prior and I knew our hearts were similar, but the moment we saw each other and hugged I knew God had sent me a sister to walk through the trenches w/ and a friend to enjoy the rainbow moments ...

Emily and her sweet family have left to go to Ethiopia to pick up their sweet son Abe ... Please check out their journey and pray for them ... I have asked her to just bring Abigail and Joseph home and she promised to try ... lol


THE BOOK (side note) ... A few writer emails have come back to me as incorrect ... If you have not received an email from me in the last week please email your correct email address (the editing will begin next week) ... One step closer to my babies in Ethiopia ...

There's nothing like good girlfriends. I treasure mine so much. God always puts people we need in our lives. I will pray for her trip to her sweet Abe. Oh, how I wish she could sneak your Ethopian babies home on the airplane for you!
Hugs!

It was great to see you and the girls at the volleyball game on Thurs. Do you ever do any private lessons? I would love to get Maci a few in. Just let me know. Thanks.

You and your friends are all so beautiful! How exciting for her to be in Ethiopia to bring home her son. Oh, if it were only so simple to load another couple on the plane. (sigh)

I will email you my email address. I did not receive anything from you this week on The Book.

It is wonderful who God brings to our path and allows to be our friend! I have just said a quick prayer for your friend, May God bless them on this special journey!

sar said...

i will be praying for them also! i am thankful of all the people God has brought into my life through blogging that encourage me daily!

i just wanted to thank you for your emails and your prayers...and just so you know, money literally fell from the sky, the very next day.

an old friend from high school [[her husband is a pastor, she a stay at home mom to her three kids under 3]] sent me a check! it wasn't that the check was so huge, but what was amazing was the fact that this family gave out of the little they had to help and encourage us! and to top it all off they said that until our baby is safe in our arms they want to send the same check EACH MONTH! wow!

...just wanted to share this joy with you! what an answer to prayer!!
