National Adoption Awareness Month 2010

This time last year, we were in the middle of our homestudy and paperwork requirements for adoption. This year, we have a precious baby boy who is 11 months old, yesterday. In honor of National Adoption Awareness Month, I want to send the following message to my sweet Nathanael:

"Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone, but still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute, you didn't grow under my heart--but in it." -Fleur Conkling Haylinger

Our family has been blessed by the miracle of adoption. This year I have been challenged in new ways to support adoption. I have been doing a lot of my Christmas shopping from people's adoption fundraisers. I have been praying for friends who are in this journey of adoption. I challenge you, as you read this to think of new ways to support adoption this month.
