We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our friends, family and even strangers over the last year and a half of this adoption journey. But there are several really unique donations that just stick in my mind and make me tear up every time I think about them. One of them is the story I'm about to tell you.
Toward the end of last school year, the parent of a former student sent me an email:
He had made another five dollars since her email! I just couldn't get over it. I still get a little teary whenever I think about it. I wrote his mom back and said, "Never has $52.35 meant so much to me!" And it's true!
Truly, friends. Every dollar that has been given to us has meant the world to us. We can't do this without you and we are so grateful to have you all partnering with us to bring our babies home. We are blessed beyond measure.
I'll leave you with a picture of Isaac and me. A few disclaimers: it was field day, thus the less-than-professional attire and the so-sunburnt-you-could-fry-eggs-on-them shoulders. And I'm sorry for the (ahem) cleavage - it's hard to avoid that when you are (ahem-ahem) ample-breasted and it's 100+ degrees outside. I now know not to lean down so far when having my photo taken with a student. How embarrassing. *sigh* Redirect your eyes to that sweet boy whose hard work and generous heart is helping to Make Way for our Ethiopian and Chinese babies!
