Thank you doesn't even come close!!!

I have no doubt about what God can do, yet it is still amazing to watch Him work!!!

My heart is laid wide open. This morning as I began to check my email, I noticed an influx of donations to our adoption fund. Immediately I knew God was moving and that I had to check up on Wife to the Rockstar's blog. Just as I thought, she had posted about us. 

I am a strong believer in the inherent goodness of people, but I cried...sobbed as the outpouring of support(emotional and financial), encouragement, blessings and love poured out over me and my family. I have had some truly amazing experiences in my life, and this adoption journey ranks up there among the best of them. 

I want to thank each of you for reaching out and making dreams come true. Every bit counts big time. You will never know how you have not only helped us financially and emotionally, but touched me to my very core. I can't seem to stop tearing up. If I could give every one of you a gigantic hug, I absolutely would. If I have not thanked you via email, please forgive me. I think I connected to everyone except 1 (the email keeps being returned).

Courtney, I know you give all the glory to God, but I have to say you are truly one of His greatest gifts to me, with a heart beyond measure!

I am truly blessed by my family, and close friends who are nothing but prayerful, supportive and thrilled for us. They all know who they are and how very much I love them.

Again, though words don't cover it, THANK YOU!! God bless you. God is so good!!!

You know what I am going to say....

It is all God.

You are just as much a blessing to me.

It was no accident you guys moved in behind us. God has been in this from the very beginning.

Love you.

I found you through Courtney's blog. Congratulations!!! I am very happy for you. You mentioned about meeting the birth mother and being nervous. I invite you to read this letter I wrote to my son.

If you ever want to talk, from a birth mother's perspective, I'd be more than happy to correspond with you! My email is:


p.s. Courtney & family are moving up (close) to my neck of the woods. Small world.
