Coming Up on Our Blog

I have a three things that are going to be coming up on the blog that I wanted to share:

1. Do you remember this post?  I poured out my heart a little about adopting older children and it got me to thinking that maybe I should have people who have adopted older or waiting children guest post for me.  SOOO, starting February 21st, I am going to do just that.  I have a handful of people that are putting together a post just for you about their stories with adopting a waiting child.  I'm excited about it...hope you are, too!


2. Our adoption auction was a huge success!  I am still contacting, mailing, etc., but, it looks like we made right at $1,200!!  Therefore, I am planning to do it again mid-June. :)  If you might want to donate, let me know and I'll put you on my list of people to contact in May.  Otherwise, watch for the auction in June...there will be something for everyone.

3. I am thinking about an organizational overhaul for the blog.  I'm still formulating how to do this in my head, but I'm thinking something like a specific day for talking about adoption, one for family happenings, one for crafting, and one for a weekly spiritual truth.  What do you think?  Do you have any advice for me?  I love your feedback! :)


P.S. It looks like we will be going back to work this week.  Hope we remember how to work more than one day a week! ;)

P.P.S. Our agency made two referrals this week, so "unofficially", we are sitting at number...


  1. So excited to hear from the guest bloggers. We are adopting a 6 year old boy and I'd love to hear other stories.

    I'd also like to donate an item for the next auction, let me know!

  2. I would love to donate for the auction again.
    Also, I like the idea of having a different themes. Some blog advice I have read says whatever theme you decide for a certain day stick to that theme for that day.. be consistent so if Thursdays are spiritual truth day you don't suddenly do a craft on Thursday. I don't know why they say that but I guess it messes people up that like routine.
    All the best! Glad the auction was a success.

  3. Congrats on the auction total! That is wonderful! :)

    I'm looking forward to the guest bloggers as well.
