Unbelievably Beautiful


I received this blanket in the mail last week from Kim at 'Isabella Bison'. This photo doesn't come close to doing it justice. Her mother made it for my Sophia. It is so beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes. I wish you all could smell it, it smells so wonderful. I cannot imagine how many hours it took her to make it. There is so much care in it and it truly is just perfect.
Thank You honestly doesn't seem like enough, but here in this post I will say thank you. I want your Mom to know Kim that this will always be treasured. I will have Sophia photographed with it when she comes home, I will put it at the end of her bed and I will save it for her so she will have it when she is grown and has her own children.
When I opened the box, I thought to myself, 'this is a gift that a grandmother would give'. And since my Mom is gone, it really touched my heart that Isabella's grandmother would think of my daughter and make her such a treasure.

Starting An Adoption Ministry at Church...


I am working closely with Kelly/Truly Blessed and a couple of other ladies at our church to begin an adoption ministry. We go to a large church where there are so many families who have adopted and yet we have no support group. Our church has been leary in the past of allowing one to be started and is just now giving us the green light to meet at the church. We are trying to put together a very firm foundation for our group and good goals that are attainable and a timeline for when we would like to have certain projects ready to launch. We are building a list of adoptive families and are hoping that we can encourage our church to see the need for this ministry.
If any of you have started a group at your church, I would be very interested to see how you did it. Any advice would be cherished. You can e-mail me at timnkim@ gmail.com. We have Shaohannah's Hope info.
Please pray for us.
