6 becomes 8 (And 8 is pretty great)

Our. Boys. Are. Home. It’s been a journey, and not a particularly easy one. Let me start off by saying THANK YOU to all of you who have been following our story, praying and/or providing encouraging words as the days (and years) went by. We have felt (and are still feelin’) the love!

When I Wait, You Strengthen my Heart – Psalm 27:14

Just wanted to write today and fill you in on our adoption progress. The boys’ passports have been applied for!! I’m so happy about this I can hardly stand it. Today, they went into the office to get finger-printed. This is getting so real. And to be honest, I’m having a hard time concentrating. I’m a little jittery (okay… probably doesn’t help that I’m on my third cup of coffee), my mind is racing about all that I need to do.

Cancer Can’t Steal Everything

Her hair lay clumped in her hands as the tears streamed down her face. A tribe of women surrounded her but she kept her gaze down. Lindsey was not alone, but at the same time very much so.

What Makes a World Changer?

“Be the change.”
“Make good things happen.”
“One person can do so much.”
“She believed she could so she did…”
“You have the power to change the world.”
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
“If you can’t feed one hundred, if you can’t feed fifty, if you can’t feed ten, FEED ONE.”
We see these quotes all over the internet, in the books we read and on our apparel (check out our shop for some inspiration). We are constantly encouraging our friends to “make a difference” and often times feel like we aren’t “doing enough.” We see all the big organizations and celebrities doing their part and we wonder how ours could ever matter.

But it does. Your part matters…
