So I haven't blogged in a while...mostly because there was/is a bit of a storm that we were trying to get through that almost felt like it was going to steal our dream of adopting. Have you ever gone through something that wasn't because of something that you necessarily did but it still affected you? Those storms are tough but I know they are necessary. The thought of not adopting is painful. It's almost like finding out you're pregnant and then miscarrying...someone may feel as if that is a bit of an unfair analogy but during the course of our marriage, I've experienced two miscarriages and know all too well what that feels like in your heart...this has been what I've been going through. Never for a minute did I think that this adoption journey would be easier, yet I see how it's making me stronger and I'm maturing as a woman more and more. For that, I am so grateful.
So what's next...I'm working with a great young artist to develop the design for t-shirts. We were going to work with a third-party to sell their shirts but after researching it more, it looks like it will cost so much more to go that route. This way, we get to get really personal. It feels great to be moving towards progress. Until next time....embrace compassion for others!
When you get a chance (hopefully right now...smile), check out what's been going on in the life of Ms. Katie and her amazing 12 daughters...that's right, I said 12 and Katie is 20.... http://kissesfromkatie.blogspot.com/
Much love to you!
