Monday Meditations




Whats on your heart today? I am praying for my First Friday friends. Its a special family that I have not seen in a long time. This community as seen so many Chinese babies come home, we have some biological babies, domestic adoption and families being created in other countries.

I love my First Friday friends. They motivated us to apply with our agency and helped us get our paperwork in before the May 1 deadline this year. They have welcomed us and they have let me play with their children. This is so much more than an adoption support group, it's a family.

First Friday friends, I pray for all of you today. I know some of you are about to have the family you have been dreaming for. I know some of you are struggling. Some of you are still waiting. Its been awesome watching your families grow. Thanks to Susan and Dan for opening your hearts to this amazing group!
Please also pray for Sheridan. He's having his surgery today and we pray for a speedy recovery with minimal pain...


Most of you have adoption friends where you live. Let's pray for each other today.
I will not forget to pray about China.

Hi Amy,
My best friend has recently adopted two little girls and is in the process of adopting two brothers from Ethiopia. Through these adoptions, she and I read a lot of blogs and somehow, we came across yours. I have been reading your blog for a while now, and have truly enjoyed it. I feel like I Have learned so much from reading it, but there is so much more I don't know.
My husband and I feel called to adopt from China as soon as we are able (I'm only 28, so we have to wait another year and a half). I am wondering if you would be able to give me some advice about good agencies to go through and any other information you think might be helpful for us to look into during the next year and a half.
My email address is ann14761@gmail.com.
Thank you!
