Today is National Adoption Day so I wanted to share a couple of collages I have made. One for today and one for the National Adoption Month! Adoption has changed our lives so much for the better. Touched us in so many ways and changed me to my core! My daily life not only focuses on how adoption affects me daily with my sweet boys, but also my advocacy has given me such a wonderful joy to hopefully help build families and to make a difference! :)
Tomorrow (Sunday at 1 pm) we as a family will go to Bobby's Sister (and now my sis too) Beth's Memorial Service. Tuesday was a very sad and difficult day as she passed from this earth into the arms of Jesus. We were blessed to be there with her in a room full of love and family! Please keep her daughters and their families, her husband, grandchildren, neices, nephews, siblings and families and all whose lives she touched in your prayers! This has been so incredibly difficult and painful. I am blessed to have been able to call Beth my sister and I can't imagine my life without her love and care in it. She adored our kids, all 3 of them and prayed for the children of our heart to come. She took joy in knowing when we adopt a girl she will be named for her! :) She saw something in my Jeremiah that few really do! I so miss her.
In addition to that loss, earlier in the day on Tuesday Bobby lost his job. So we are thrust yet again into unemployment. We are hanging on as tight as we can to God and praying it will NOT be as long this time till Bobby is earning a good income. We are prayerful that God will show us what we are to be doing! We have already been blessed by people bringing a few meals this week, and being told a thanksgiving basket is coming early week and just the texts, emails, facebooks messages, cards in the mail, etc of love and support and sympathy for our family this week. I ask my bloggy friends to please just bathe us in prayer. I can't begin to express the overwhelming feeling in our hearts this week.
