All week my husband, a few friends and family members have had butterflies thinking that this is the week----and I have finally had a little relief from them! This morning I woke up to a dream that the four of us were getting ready to meet our new family members for the first time and a little girl was wrapping herself around my skirt. It was so sweet and comforting. Thank you to Ryan's folks and our awesome sister-in-law, Lora, for the hard work, sweat and occasional gross-out (who donates thongs?!) at our garage sale. We made $1300! That is a plane ticket! Courtney, Heidi and I have been "chatting" all week on facebook and have made a pact to call each other when we get a referral. They are the other 2 mamas waiting for a referral this week too. I love my new friends and sisters.


  1. That is so awesome that you are getting to know your soon to be travel buddies! Mandy, Kelly, and I did the same thing before our trip. It was so helpful to have them to lean on before, during, and after the adoption. I'm so excited for all three of your families to get over there and tell us about your kids and your trip! Congratulations on a successful garage sale.

  2. Hi! My name is Torri and I live and work in Rwanda. We too are nearing the end of the adoption process here. I volunteer at the Home of Hope orphanage where all of our children are coming from. There is some information I would like to share with you, if you are interested. Please feel free to e-mail me at Congratulations! Torri
