First Friday



Hey guys! To all of you Atlanta folks, First Fridays is happening next Friday at 7pm!!! The website will be running this weekend so I will post it as soon as I can.

Whats First Fridays? Its a blessing. It is a place for people who have been there done that, people who are waiting for their China babies and for those who have questions. Dan and Susan were called by God to start this ministry and God has really been working. I will warn you that I have not been bringing my tissues but will try to remember this week. There are so many happy tears shed and this week will be no different. Referrals to celebrate and babies home from China to meet. I am just too excited! This week there will be special music and a special guest from Love without Boundaries.

I can not put into words on what this group has done for Michael and I. I have posted my story before but had Michael and I not asked to go on a different boat for an excursion on a Disney cruise, we probably would not be adopting from China and certainly would not have heard about First Fridays.
There are so many families who attend and are happy to answer questions for you. We have met new friends here that I know will last a lifetime.

First Fridays is meeting at NorthMetro Church on Barrett Pkwy in Kennesaw. I received a Christmas card in the mail today from a family who had been hesitant about First Fridays but will be there next week. I love meeting new friends.

Please email me at amyschristopher@comcast.net for more info and I can point you in the right direction.

For those First Friday friends, thanks for being our friends. Thanks for being kind to us, for letting us into your lives and for praying for us. What God has done through all of you is truly a miracle. I can not put it into words. We are still in the waiting stage but our lives have been forever changed. I probably need to get permission for the title of my blog but as I sit here the words of the song are in my head
"Where love takes you in and everything changes A miracle starts with the beat of a heart "
I guess I will end this now before my tears flood my keyboard.haha!

You are such an inspiration for us to continue pushing First Friday forward and God has been working in such a huge way, and every single person who comes to First Friday is part of this ministry. The amazing part in all of this is that God continues to burn in our hearts that adoption isn't something to ever be taken for granted, I guess that is why we always shed so many tears....I think the emotion and tears we all share really makes God smile!

Hi there! I am just trying to get the word out about my new blogging business where I will "stylize" your blog for a small fee. This money I raise will go towards supporting a humanitarian trip I will be going on this summer for a month to the Dominican Republic. Please see my site for full details:
