No more training!

We have officially completed our adoption training! No more Tuesday evening drives to Columbia! That being said, we have both really enjoyed training, and we've learned a lot. We've had many conversations about things we never would have thought about. Last night, we had the opportunity to hear a birthmother speak. She was a beautiful young lady, my age. Her story was truly heart-wrenching and I had to fight back tears. It is so humbling to hear her side of the story. I won't share her story because it isn't mine to share, but it was very eye-opening to hear what the birthmothers really go through, even though each birthmother is different. It is humbling to know that a woman will choose life and experience so many different emotions so that we can have a family. Wow.

We have a few more fundraisers in mind, but we won't start them until after our yard sale Easter Weekend! I have my hands full with fundraisers right now. We are praying hard that we will be able to turn our paperwork in very, very soon!

Don't forget! Our Jim N Nick's fundraiser is Next Thursday, the 25th! Hope to see you there!
