A Heart Full of Gratitude

We had great success at our fundraiser, yesterday! We had a yard sale/bake sale/craft sale/hotdog sale and car wash. All total we raised $1905! It was a Success! We are so thankful for all of our friends and family who came out and helped with the big event. There's no way we could have done it without you! How blessed our boys are going to be when they come home to so many people who love them already.

I am always amazed to hear other people tell our story and talk about our boys. I can hear the love and excitement in the voices of our friends and family as they share about Samuel and Joseph. It blesses us to know that they are passionate about seeing our boys come home and join our family.

I am, especially, thankful to God for allowing us to walk this road. We are finding Jesus in the most unexpected places. In the generosity of friends and strangers, we see Jesus. In a willingness to sacrifice time and resources, we see Jesus. In every extra mile driven to come out and support our family, we see Jesus. In every encouraging word and uplifting phone call, we see Jesus. In every item priced, donation given, truck loaded, cake baked, item sewn and car washed, we see Jesus. It has been our hearts cry to be the hands and feet of Jesus and in the process, we have experienced blessing after blessing from His hands and feet here on earth. Thank you.

The road less travelled really is the place where we meet Jesus face to face.

Hidden in Christ,
