Cole's new family's story is wonderful and I hope Stephanie's blog is able to raise a lot of money for them.

However, I LOVE YOUR BOWS!!! Do you sell them? If so, where?

I just read your story of C's adoption on your other blog -- wow, what an amazing story. I had no idea such things could be done.

Our DD#2 is also a VSD baby, so this hits so close to home for us, it's amazing. So, did you travel in June of this year to bring C. home? We were in China from June 20 - July 2 to bring home our sweet Ella. Is it possible we were there at the same time?

Thank you for the sweet post on my blog! I just may take you up on that offer. When we adopted from China, we knew many people to "help" us along the way. This time around we know no one. I guess you could call us "domestic newbies". If you ever want to e-mail me and share more of your story, I would love to hear it. How you came to adoption, both domestic & international. What it was like meeting the birthmoms for the first time. What the wait was like from birth to placement, etc. You have a gorgeous family! I hope I too will be so lucky! I DO KNOW God has a plan for us, and I am trusting Him. It has not been easy, and I have cried many tears and asked Him why. I am just now beginning to see the bigger picture.
Thaks again for the support, it does mean more than you know!
Hugs- Jill
Cute bows BTW!

That's awesome and what a great idea. Love the hairbows you made too my friend. Just a quick note, that the camera photo is actually of the Canon XSI. It is a little newer model than the XTI. The only reason I know is because I have the same one. Thanks for blogging about this and I need to get over there. :)

Hugs, ♥

Stefanie said...

Stacy, you are so sweet!! Thank you so much for your support :) And for donating those gorgeous hand-made bows, they are wonderful!!
Hugs to you and your beautiful family!

Hey Girl!
I just noticed this.
Mary Elizabeth is from Kunming!
Very Cool!
She is 3. Turned in August!
We adopted her from the CWI in Feb 06. She was never in
Im excited.

Andrea said...

Oh! I forgot. Stacy and I spent 2 days at the CWI. I held every baby in the 0-6 months room.
If your baby was there...I held her!
How sweet is that?!
