The Ant of Adoption...

Sometimes I feel like this Ant...

I mean as look at this picture it looks like this ant is workin hard, really hard, who knows how long he has been working to push that drop of water and alone...I feel like this Ant in relation to the waiting game when it comes to us growing our family...I seriously feel like the slowest ones on the block at times, like I just can't seem to get to where I want fast enough since its been almost 7 yrs (since we got married) of us wanting to have children and just when we think we are growing or have grown it all changes in a blink of an eye and we are back to square one with no growth...waiting is HARD...I wish it was different and this was easier or maybe that I was just way more patient...The Lord definitely knows I have acquired way more in the patience department...he has refined me ALOT in that

But even though this is hard, I understand that He is preparing us to be who He needs us to be with this struggle and that He does have perfect timing in all things even if I say sometimes I wish his timeline was like I think of the fact that He is caring for the sweet little spirits that will one day pitter patter around our house...the same sweet spirits that will make it messy (can u believe that I actually look forward to that), the sweet spirits that will have lots of hugs and kisses to give, the sweet little spirits that may/ most likely pull on little Paris' tail (our dog) and may even do fashion shows with her as Abbe has, the sweet little spirits that we will share our world with, the sweet spirits that Abbe will snuggle and read with, the sweet little spirits that we will cherish forever, I totally feel better and ok with His timing.

Now, as I write this and I look at this Ant, I think of what I can not see in it...Maybe the Ant is almost there where ever there is,  maybe he has worked so hard and is about to get to his family or just dump this water drop on his ant seriously the important part is how we look at it, as a inspiration to not give up, to not doubt, to keep going, to hold on, to trust, and to push thru til we reach the destination we are called to reach...

No one ever said it was going to be easy but it will be worth it...

Adoption Media Blitz THIS WEEKEND!!

This photo is intended to be a pass-a-long photo 
Save and post on Facebook and others will like and share to help spread the word:)

As many of you know, we are trying to adopt. What you might not know is that you can help us by getting the word out to others that WE WANT TO ADOPT!!! You can help us to find a potential Birthmother!  PLEASE tell anybody and everybody you know that we are wanting to Adopt—a personal referral will greatly increase our chances of finding the baby that is supposed to be in our family. The more people that know about us, the better chance we have of being found by an expectant mother. 

Our PLAN is this!  To have as much circulation on Facebook and traffic to our Facebook Adoption Page and to our BLOG as Possible! 

 How can you HELP us do this?  

For Starters the BIGGEST WAY to help
Lift (save) the photo below and Post it on Facebook! We are asking EVERYBODY if they would make this photo their timeline cover photo for Saturday and Sunday if willing or at least SHARE it....more people will see it for the BLITZ!  Again, Exposure is key!  You never know who your networks know...when they press "like" it then shows in their network feeds and on and on!!!

 p.s. if you know me personally please tag me in your post so it links on my wall and my network sees as well!

This Photo will also be on our Adoption Facebook Page if you want to share directly from there!  This photo is perfect size for the timeline cover size for SATURDAY AND SUNDAY!

Another Way to help is: Copy our information (all info is below) and blog about it, link it, write about it, text it, tweet about it, and most importantly Please Facebook about it by sharing our blog or our Adoption Facebook Page…the possibilities are endless. Anything you do directly impact our chances and would be greatly appreciated!  If you have any questions, let us know! Otherwise go media blitz crazy!

With the assistance of friends and family letting their NETWORKS know about our desire to adopt...the more likely that we will find our baby!  The more people that see our blog, Our Facebook Adoption page, a comment, a Facebook picture, a parent profile or a pass-a-long photo the more likely a birthmom will find us.  

The more people who follow our blog, the more traffic that flows to our blog.  The more people who "like" our page on Facebook, the more likely that someone who can help us will see our adoption information. 

If you have any questions, let me know! Otherwise, go media blitz crazy!!!

I kept feeling like I was supposed to re-post this post from our personal private blog, so here it is...  I wrote these thoughts quite some time ago...  March 2,  2010 to be exact...right around the time that we first decided to look into adoption...  Isn't crazy how you can write something, have an experience with it and then go back and it is all new to you again like you never wrote

As I looked up the video to this post (linked below) It felt so different to me...I instantly thought about our quest to grow our family and how I have prayed and prayed and prayed and how my prayers have grown but then when I read my words below they truly felt profound...I am truly grateful for the peace prayer has given me...

Prayer is the one thing that no matter how alone we may feel or how bad a situation may be that we always have access to...We may not always get the answers we want but we always feel comfort from the Lord...

"Miracle's are wrought through Prayer"

March 2, 2010
I just listened to this little Mormon message and President Thomas S. Monson spoke about prayer. It spoke about how prayer changes things and he said that "Miracle's are wrought through prayer." It is interesting that I just listened to this message because last week I was reading an old Ensign from 2007 and it was speaking about prayer and really hit home to me. It said how Prayer many times isn't about praying for everything that we is about communicating with Heavenly Father so that we can be at peace and one with what he wants for us and then and only then are we able to ask for what he wants to Bless us with....The blessings are there we just have to align ourselves properly for it.
