I JUST CAN'T LET IT SLIP BY!!!

It is November!!!!

It is my very favorite month!!!

Yes, it is Thanksgiving and that truly is my favorite holiday!!!

Yes, it is my birthday and that is always fun!!!!

It is also my mom's, sister's and Dad's birthdays. Lots of celebrating and family time!!!!

But, it is also my favorite month because.......

IT IS NATIONAL ADOPTION MONTH!!!!!!!

I love adoption!

I love that God has chosen to adopt us into His family. What a family name to carry.

I love that we have been able to adopt. What a joy our boys are to us!!!

I love that so many friends have been able to adopt!!!!

I love reading blogs and stories about adoption!!!!

I love encouraging others that are considering adoption!!!!

I love praying for all of those kids out there that are waiting for families!!!

I love how my girls always ask "can we adopt a little girl?"



I have thought a lot about how I can be involved in caring for the orphans even though bringing home another child right now is not where God is calling us.

I want to help the desperately poor, so less children need to be placed for adoption.

I want to encourage young girls to wait till they are married, so less children need to be placed for adoption.


I want to be part of supporting people to go to those in need, even though I cannot go.

I want to pray more and fast more for those little and big children that do not have a family to call their own.

I want to start an adoption ministry through our church or community.

THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS I WANT TO DO, SO MANY NEEDS I SEE IN THE WORLD AND SO LITTLE TIME AND RESOURCES IN MY VIEW, BUT.... I KNOW THE OWNER OF THE CATTLE ON A THOUSAND HILLS AND THESE ARE HIS CHILDREN!!!!


Jesus Loves the Little Children
all the children of the world.
Red and yellow black and white
they are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world.
