Little (and big) blessings

So the past few days I've been blessed in lots of little ways.

First, I found an online Ecuador Adoption Support group via Yahoo.  Chalked full of women who are thinking of adopting from Ecuador in the future (me), women who have adopted from Ecuador in the past (most of them), and others who are just about to go and get their little ones (lucky few!), it's the perfect place for me to ask questions and get some good, honest answers.  As I've said, I have the rest of this year to pray and get info and make contacts, and that's exactly what I've been doing.  And I am SO glad that God has provided me with this opportunity, because I have now been in contact with a wonderful woman that I'm so excited to have met:  Anna.  

Anna has been sharing her experiences with me about JoshuaTree adoptions, and not only that- she adopted her little girl from FHC! The same orphanage I've been in contact with!  Coincidence?  I think, when God is involved, there is no such thing as coincidence.

I've also been blessed enough to find a truckload (well, that's a bit of an exaggeration) of Snapple Peach Tea products on sale at Kroger!  Woot!  It's the little things...thank you, God, for simple pleasures!

Please continue to pray for me and all the waiting children in the world.  We're still expecting to hear from God every time we open my email or the phone rings :-)


  1. I had no idea you were looking into adopting lady! So exciting!!

  2. Hello...I think I messaged you on the yahoo group...but just wanted to stop on your blog and say hello. =) I'm hoping to get our blog updated tonight with where we're at in the process and continue to keep it updated. =) Blessings to you!

  3. Hope this little peek over your way finds you doing well. You were on my mind so I thot Id jump over to see if you had any new posts. Thanks for counting me as a blessing. I just want to be a reflection of HIM.

  4. Wondering how things were going with you. Hope all is well.
