Special Friendships

Well, she's been posting about me on her blog lately so I thought I'd post a little something about her on mine. Isn't it just amazing how God brings the most perfect people into our lives at the most perfect time. I have met two amazing women through this process and know they will be lifelong friends. Even though I have never met either one of them they have both become such special people in my life. One, Missi, I look to as kinda a big sis. One that knows this adoption thing in and out and is, I think, living vicariously through me on my journey now. She's someone I can't wait to share news with because I know she's probably as excited as I am. If she could, she'd go get another baby tomorrow. I love her sweet loving heart. The other, Carrie, has been my go to girl. She adopted her sweet baby from Kaliningrad about a year and a half ago and we met through, I think, the Kgrad yahoo group. The first time we talked on the phone I knew she'd be someone I could just have a ball with. She's so fun and positive and everytime I talk to her I'm more and more excited about what life has in store for me. She's helped me with everything from hotels to doctors to phone cards, you name it, if I've got a question she's my girl. So, thank you God for puting these two wonderful people in my life and thank you Missi and Carrie for being such precious friends!!


  1. Ooooh. Your too sweet to me. We need to catch up when I have time to call. Hope all is well. XOXOXOX

  2. OK after reading your last post about shopping, I started looking at Ebay. Boy am I addicted to that now. I had never purchased from the site before, and once I started bidding, it was like keep bidding and don't stop. Thanks for making me an addict (LOL). Hope all is well with you. Sally

  3. I just found your blog yesterday, so I haven't had a chance to read through all your posts yet. My husband & I do missionary work with an orphanage in Pravdinsk, Kaliningrad. I wish with all my heart we could bring all the children home with us from our trips, but as you know, it's much more complicated than that!! I'm giddy reading these posts about your prep to travel to Kaliningrad. :) We're going back for the third time in June '11 and moving to Kingwood, TX sometime soon. Waiting on God's time is tough! But I am praying over a little girl in the meantime while I'm waiting for Him to work out the details! Congrats on your sweet baby girl! :) And, nice to meet you. :)
