I have said thank you innumerable times the past week and yet it doesn’t feel like enough. So many wonderful family members, friends, church members and co-workers have come around us this week to celebrate Ali’s adoption day with hugs, balloons, gifts, cards and encouraging words. Tthey’ve been cheering us on for the past 11 months. I’d be remiss to not also thank YOU: my blog readers.
I know a lot of you consider yourselves “lurkers” because you read but don’t comment. And that’s perfectly OK. I’m posting my thoughts all over the web and you’re welcome to hang out here—I’m honored that you even read what I write! Many of you do comment and I’m always delighted to see feedback from the handful of “regulars.” I’m thankful for those who have read along with our foster/adoption story, cared about us, supported us, prayed for us and celebrated with us.
From the bottom of my heart, Thank You! I wish I could send you all a card!
And thank you for sharing your lives with all of us! It takes a lot of guts to open up the way you do. I must say its FUN to see the growth and seasons God takes your family through. Way to go guys! 😀 Much love, The Carlsons
Congratulations!! I’ve been lurking here for a while but I thought I would come out of the unknown to say that I’m so happy for you guys and your sweet baby girl! I actually found your blog by searching for ways to design rooms for foster children. Thank you for the care and hard work you put into the room you had at your first house. That encouraged us so much as we are starting the PATH class this week to become resource parents. Reading your posts has been so encouraging and helpful since we weren’t really sure what we were getting ourselves into (and we still don’t really). Thanks for sharing!
I was just reading about your story on the Living with Kids tour and wanted to pop over and congratulate you on adopting your beautiful child. What a wonderful world 🙂
Best to you and yours.
De-lurking from DC to wish you all the best and to say that I’ve loved watching you navigate all of the changes (I started reading after your Apt Therapy appearance) with faith, hope, love and great design. I’m sure there will be more of all in the years ahead!
