a piece of my heart

okay- if you've read my blog before- you know that once i talked about the desire i have to adopt.  this is not something the Lord is calling us to do at this present time...but it does not lessen the heaviness on my heart of wanting to care for those who don't have a mom and dad to call their own!  i have been sooooo unbelievably moved by so many people over just the last year who have chosen to go down this path.  and this thought of blogging about it has recurred so many times in my thoughts!  i have read complete stranger's blogs about their journey to adoption- but i would love to have a place where all the people in my world can read each other's stories and connect!

so here is what i am proposing...

i would love to share YOUR adoption story.  have you adopted?  are you in the middle of an adoption?    are you yourself adopted?  do you have any tips or websites or information you can share with someone who might be thinking about it, but doesn't know where to start?

leave me a comment or facebook msg me or email me- your story deserves to be heard {read}!  feel free to leave a link to your adoption blog if you have one!

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.
James 1:27
Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. 
Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.
Isaiah 1:17

And you just reminded me that I need to update our adoption blog, so I'm headed to do that now. Also, your potato soup recipe looks SO yummy... I think I'm planning on doing potato soup tomorrow night for bunco. Maybe I'll incorporate your recipe!
