Flashback to Halloween

SO the KIDS were awesome! Gavin did the best job as a first time trick or treater! He galloped from door to door and only got frightened a few times. We are so happy they love dress up but, I'm excited for the HOlidays. I have SOOO much catching up to do on this blog and about my Works with Adoption advocacy- all good news!
 Brielle was a VAMPIRESS
 Aria was a werewolf , and a pink princess and Belle for various parties
 Slade was a scary Dragon ( he looks so vicious;)
Gavin was our lil' buckaroo cowboy! So darling!

so some cool adoption stuff

that has happened in the last  month or so...

first off- my Mother in laws FB post "Today I am thankful for two women who chose adoption over abortion. I don't know if they could possibly ever know the joy that their choice brought me and my husband. It is, in my eyes, one of the most selfless acts of love that could ever be shown. I will be forever thankful and hold a special place for you in my heart! Two other women made that same choice which brought me two of my grandchildren. You also have a special place in my heart! Thank you all!"

I too agree with everything she said! I'm one lucky lady/momma in many, many ways b/c of the Miracle of Adoption!

A couple weeks Back... i was honored to take pics of a sweet tiny girl that a friend of mine had and she and her boyfriend had chosen to place her with an adorable couple down south. I was able to meet them too.

Today someone who was visiting remembered when i was running the FSA Region here and stopped me to get info about a very special Birth mother who needs to meet Her sons birth mom. We chatted for a second then a lady in my church came up to me and told me of her daughter who is considering placement and that i needed to share my testimony of the Family and open adoption with her. 

I feel honored that God has used me as an instrument and will continue to use me, to be able to tell others that OPEN adoption can be amazing! It really can. 
Yeah, not everyone will have birth families come stay with them or have vacations together. But, for us it works. We are the LUCKIEST family ever! BLESSED is a more appropriate word. We are FAR from perfect. We don't the MOLD for the NORM of Families made through adoption- but, who ever said there was a mold to fit into?
We are us, genuine flaws and all. I LOVE sharing my experiences and LOVE meeting those who have been blessed by this Uniquely Beautiful Process. 
Thanks to everyone involved in my Craziness! BTW!

Oh- and i SOLD my LAST adoption onesie on my Etsy store today too:)
