Generosity

I am in awe of those around me. From the beginning of this adoption process, I have been surrounded by people who have given me so freely, so kindly. I am humbled by the generosity of others. Just yesterday I had two women bring me bags of
supplies for the orphanage and then last night another lady gave me $20 to buy more supplies. Then another person today brought some by. It's amazing! Plus the wonderful families who are going to take care of Anna while we're in Ukraine and the family caring for our puppy, Maggie. It seems that whatever obstacle or item needing to be done is taken care of - even the money that we need: This foundation gave us a grant of $2500! I am overwhelmed by the love that we have felt and continue to feel from such generous people. Thank you all for your prayers and all of your kindness towards myself and my family.

That's so wonderful that people have been so kind and generous to you! I wish we could help...I think of it in the way King Benjamin said it: "If I had, I would give"! We are remembering you in our prayers, though, and wish you all the best in your efforts. Love ya!

I am glad everything is working out for you. Let me know if you need any help. I can't believe you are leaving in two days. We are going to miss you. I am happy that you will have your new children soon. I know you are longing to be with them. I hope you have a great time in Ukraine. Your children will be very blessed to have you as their mom.
