lurkers come out

Well, last night was First Fridays and we missed it again. Michael is sick with the flu and I had to work. That's the second month in a row we have missed and next month we will be on our Disney Cruise with my family so that's 3 in a row we will miss plus it looks like I am working the first Friday in June! Ugh!

I know you have read about First Fridays before but it is an incredible ministry. Its a monthly gathering of people who have adopted, waiting on their adoption, or are thinking of adoption. Its grown and includes families who have adopted from other countries as well.

This has been such a support from us and we have made some lifelong friends.

So, I hope if you are in the Atlanta area that you will attend a First Friday one day.

So, I noticed our blog has been getting some new hits. Some are from my weight watchers board.
If you rarely comment, would you do so now? I would love to see who reads this.
In case I do not make it back to the blog before Monday, please say a prayer for Miss Shelby. She was adopted last year from China and is having her palate surgery on Monday. Pray for the doctors, nurses and techs to just love on this sweet little girl and her precious family!

Hi Amy!!!

I am off to my accountability group with my girlfriends--a group of gals whom I meet with once a month. We keep each other accountable for the sin as well as the good. It is an incredible fellowship. Before I took a shower and after I took my synthroid, I thought I would check a few favorite blogs. :-D

You asked for comments...hope your hubby feels better fast and that he is on Tamiflu, and I hope you don't get it!

What time is Shelby's surgery? One of my godchildren's name is Shelby. I will be honored to pray

Have a wonderful weekend----

Hi Amy!!
Lurker her...revealing myself.
I actually don;t consider myself an actual lurker becaus eI think I have posted once or twice (maybe my imagination) and I think you have posted on mine (about my obsession with buying shoes for Maddy even though we are still waiting for her referral!!).
Anyway, we are a few hours Northof you in Greenville, SC and hope to road trip down to Atlanta this summer while school is out (I teach 4th grade) to check out a First Friday. We are getting closer (but not close enough) to getting our referral. Hopefully by the end of this year...we are LID 3-1-06.
Well, I hope Micheal gets better soon and hope you both have a great weekend! Blessings~Patti

Well you know I am not a lurker, as I read everyday and comment when I can. Thank you so much for remembering my sweetie in your prayer list. Her surgery time is 9:30am on Monday. Of course I am worried worried worried about my baby girl. I have no idea how I am going to make it through watching her in so much pain but I know I can do it with all of you praying for us. I know you will take care of us the best way possible. I am blessed to have you as a friend AND a nurse!

Hi Amy,
Not really a lurker :-) But I just noticed that you have CCAI along your sidebar. We're using them as well.

Hope your husband feels better soon!

I read your blog several times a week, but not sure I have commented.Does this make me a lurker?? My Daughter's blog is waiting for lauren elizabeth..and you are on her blogroll...Enjoy reading about your faith during this long wait. May it go quickly for you...Linda

Sharon said...

I am praying! Hope you are all better soon!

Missed you at FF, and sorry to hear that you'll miss again. Have a GREAT time on your Disney cruise. I'd love to do that someday. Take lots of photos to blog about!

On another note, how can you check to see who is visiting your site? You mentioned that in this post, and I don't know how to do that.

Yuck! That stuff seems to be going around quite a bit. Hope he feels better soon.

We are not lurkers... we think we are blogger buddies!!
First Friday's sounds like a great group. We just attended an activity through our local FCC. Keeps us going through the long wait. We are figuring it will be 30 months when we get our referral.....
