I’m still in complete shock that we have a beautiful little girl on the way via adoption.

I’m humbled every time we buy her clothes or pick out decor for her room or plan for the next year. I’m honored every time you guys share your stories with me and how my struggles and our triumphs have inspired and encouraged you; or how you’ve shared us with your friends and family.

This month has been quite special for me, although I’ve been quite quiet about it. It’s NATIONAL ADOPTION MONTH….. And, Saturday was NATIONAL ADOPTION DAY!!!!!!

This month, will forever be special for us. It represents everything that has changed us. Infertility brought us here, but I know that it was God who gently led and guided us this way.

Gently with grace and love.

Although our girl, H, will be adopted……. A fact that we are very proud of and want her to be very proud of – I’m guarding against making her feel as if she’s “separate but equal” in so many words. I want her proud of her background and unashamed of the life God has given her, but always knowing and secure in the fact that although she is adopted, she has a place in this world that she can never be removed from.

This year will be the last year we experience the holidays as a couple…… The holidays are always so difficult for me and I’m thrilled to share such a magical time of year with our girl. It’s honestly a dream come true! </strong><br /><br /><a href=”http://unashamedgrowth.files.wordpress.com/2013/11/20131124-210106.jpg”><img src=”http://unashamedgrowth.files.wordpress.com/2013/11/20131124-210106.jpg” alt=”20131124-210106.jpg” /></a> Love our not so complete table’s centerpiece! I found a box full of white mugs while I was pulling everything out and decided to Sharpie holiday greetings onto them. It curved my desire for arts &amp; crafts for a minute. Who knows what I’ll be working on in the near future. I’ve already begun thinking about the things I could make for H! Lol.
