You are appreciated

We are often so busy with our lives that we don’t take time to talk- I mean really talk to our friends. We are busy doing life, and as much as you would like it to, sometimes that doesn’t include your friends. I know life changes have put distance between us and friends whom we love and wish we spent more time with. We want you to know that we miss you!

Even with all that is going on in our lives, you still find ways to support our family, and I want to just tell you all that it means so much to us. We have been head down into saving for our adoption, and that means sacrificing dinners out, coffee dates, and other excursions. And of course, having a child at home means nights out are few and far between as it is, but now, we feel that we should put money in our adoption account rather than pay for a babysitter, food and drinks, and a show on a Friday night. Even though we have all but disappeared, y’all are still very present in our lives. We appreciate the messages from folks checking in to see how we are and how our adoption is going. And the donations to our adoption fund, towards our online auction, and to our yard sale have been so helpful. We appreciate that you would support us in this way and that you want to be a part of this journey alongside us.

We just cannot thank you for the love you have poured out on us. We don’t deserve to have friends like you. We are grateful for your support, and are comforted and encouraged to know that we have folks in our lives who will stick with us and love us through all seasons. We promise we won’t stay locked away forever.

You guys rock at this one:

“Love one another with brotherly affection. Out do one another in showing honor.” Romans 12:10

And here’s one of my favorites:

“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17

Y’all are definitely teaching me about encouragement and friendship. Thank you.
