I Got Mail... and News to share!

Today when I went to the mailbox, there were 3 package slips waiting for me. I was starting to get a bit anxious because before we left stateside, we sent 2 boxes with belongings that wouldn't fit in our suitcases... 5 weeks later, they arrived! The third package was some books I ordered off of Barnes and Noble's website, and I'm so excited to "dig" right into them. They really caught my attention, because they're written by one of my favorite fabric designers, Amy Butler, and the projects look awesome. I can't wait to grab some fabric now and just start sewing!
So, you're probably wondering why some child-less lady would purchase a book full of projects for "little ones"... and that's where my NEWS comes in. For awhile now, Jason and I have felt led to be parents, and after doing some research, and praying A LOT about it, we feel like the Lord is telling us to adopt! So, this past weekend we took the "plunge" and started the process through an organization called Christian World Adoption (CWA), and we couldn't be more excited. We sent our first package of paperwork away this morning, which pretty much began this whole process... but there's still a ton to do ahead of us. We would love to have your advice/guidance and prayers during this journey... God is good, and we know He will provide!
Pin It!


  1. That is wonderful news Karen! Best of luck to you guys during this journey. There are so many children who need loving parents. Any child would be blessed to have you...

  2. OH my goodness, that is the most wonderful thing I have every heard. You guys will be amazing parents and adoption warms my heart. So very excited for you guys.

  3. We've been praying with you. Adoption has enriched our lives beyond what we imagined. May you be abundantly blessed!

  4. You and Jason are going to be WONDERFUL parents! Just lok at how well I turned out. Emily says I'm almost tolerable now, and you only had two years to work with me. Seriously, we are praying for you both, and can't wait to hear all of the wonderful news coming from your adoption adventure!

  5. You guys are going to be great with the kiddo(s). Your craftiness will come into use. I can see you baking in the kitchen, arts and crafts in the living room, it's gonna be sweet! Congrats!
    Btw, I love Amy Butler designs, too!
