Having said that, I want to introduce you to two of my new friends:
I can't remember how I stumbled across Leigh Ann's blog, but she lives close to my brother in Arkansas and I SO hope we can meet one day! Leigh Ann's six year old son, Evan, has been diagnosed with autism. Visit her blog to find out what three best friends from Tennesse -who have never met Leigh Ann - have decided to do in honor of Evan. I don't want to give all the details here, but what an inspiration!! The world could be such a better place if everyone cared like these girls do!
I met Melanie just last week through the blog, Pink Lemonade and Peonies. Melanie and her husband have adopted two beautiful little girls, but you have to go to her site to read all about it. I just had tears in my eyes as I read her story ("Our Journey to Chloe") and was reminded of how so important the family relationship is and how God honors those who are willing to share their hearts and homes with children who would otherwise not know what "family" really means.
I hope their stories inspire you as much as they did me. Love to all!
