People DO read my blog

You know, sometimes I get on here and type my heart out and I trick myself into thinking that no one actually "really" reads these posts. Boy was I wrong!

THANKS so much for the sweet emails I have gotten since my blog post on Sunday. I promise I'm not depressed and mom, I promise I will ask you for money if we really need it. I'm being silly, but seriously, I put that out there so that people would see that there are many different facets to the adoption process. It's hard when your heart tells you to do one thing but sometimes your checkbook holds you back.

I do FEEL better...sometimes just putting your feelings out there is enough and for me, that was certainly true. Just venting on the blog made me feel so much better and after spending some time in prayer, I realized that this is yet another way that the process of adopting our daughter has truly changed me (and in a good way). So what if I don't have a new pair of jeans in the next few months or if I don't eat out as much, I have a wonderful new daughter that the Lord has blessed us with and for that, I will always be greatful!

I just read your email from . Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl! I belong to the group because I hope to adopt from Tanzania (East Africa) next year. While reading your posts, I realized you're right here in Nashville, too! Best of luck with your beautiful family.

Hey girl just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you often and I am praying for your new family addition. I saw Grandmother and Papa Sam in Belk on Friday and then Papa Eddie at Lowes on Tuesday! They are all full of good reports.
