hope


isn't this gorgeous?
you can go here to order one.
she is selling them and giving some of the money to families that are adopting.
not ours, but someone's...someone that is opening their hearts and homes to a sweet child!
so, go and get one! :-)

the word "hope" has new meaning to me during this adoption process.
it started months ago...when pat and i would pray at night, he would pray almost daily that our boys would "have a sense of hope" even when they didn't know where it was coming from. we don't know what their situation is, but it is likely not one with much hope. and we pray that God would give them HIS HOPE in their little hearts...

that is exactly why our daughter's name is Hope....when my dad had his heart attack I was only a couple of months pregnant and the word "hope" stuck out to us in many ways, but mostly that our hope is in Jesus and that we are in turn to show that hope to others....so, what better reminder than to name our precious girl Hope! Love the necklace and it's meaning. We are praying for your family and your sweet boys!!
