Will you help us?

So, for those of you who are new to this blog, you may not be aware of our deep desire to expand our family of two. It's been a long and grueling journey through doctors visits, surgery, hope, disappointment, tears, frustration, more hope, more visits, more frustration and finally the turning of a page and taking of a different road.

As time has gone by and we've been feeling better and better about our decision to adopt, peace has come into our lives. At least a measure of it. We've finished our paperwork and we've been approved. Now we get to wait. But really, who can just wait? We've been counseled to "get our name out there", to "tell everyone you know", even to pass out business cards in order to get the word out and help that special little someone come into our lives.

I confess, it feels a little like selling ourselves. It's hard to "market" yourself; it just feels awkward. However, there are some things I can do. I may not be going door to door, but I can spread the word other ways. That is where you come in. David and I would be ever so grateful if all who read this would spread the word. A huge percentage of adoptions occur through word of mouth. We have a profile on and there is a link to it on the sidebar of this blog. It's the first picture, just click on it and it will take you there.

We don't know how the right person will find us, but if we are doing everything we can, then somehow it will happen. The Lord helps those who help themselves right. So here's helping ourselves and hoping you will help too.

Thank you for reading, and thank you for helping.

Lora and David
