Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Weekend blessings

Ok, before I get to the point of my post I have to apologize for the photos from the last post... I was so psyched to try to post from my phone but the photos are the pits...so I am going to try again soon and hope for some better pics...hopefully I can get it to work better!   
I just gotta say is there anything better than a big group of families getting together for a potluck picnic, eating off paper plates, letting the kids run wild and spending a beautiful afternoon together?  We are so fortunate to have several amazing families blessed with the heart for adoption so close by.  We spent a wonderful afternoon together yesterday and I am still buzzing with love for all of them! 

The volleyball court turned into a huge sandbox for the littles...  and my apologies to anyone who was scrubbing sand out of little hair last night.  As I was washing Finn's sandy head, Mina ratted on her and told me she was pouring sand on other kids...  So sorry, I am usually not the oblivious Mom that lets her kid terrorize the sandbox.   If you have a complaint leave it in the comment section and I will make sure Finn delivers a bottle of "No more tears -shampoo" with an apology letter.  

 All in all there was over 60 of us...  and 6 of those families are waiting for word to travel and get their babies!!!!  So exiting!    Thanks all for the yummy food!
 Ok, you just have to see this adorable family.  I just love them so.  Not sure if you remember but almost a year ago I wrote this POST...about finding Ty because the sweetest woman came to my house to buy something I was selling on Cr@igslist... and she was wanting to adopt.. Well that precious woman is home with her baby now 3 weeks, and she is just the most precious little thing... LOVE
  And this photo of sweet baby Lucy with her Papa just wrecks me...  I seriously tear up.  Something about a father and his first baby girl....nothing compares to that love.


The littles playing a serious game of corn hole :) 

 and the big boys played football for hours,  my Jackson had a blast.
 I love barefoot little girls running around giggling and getting all silly.  These two are going to grow up and be party planners... they love a good fiesta!
 Such a great day and I feel so blessed to have such an amazing support and friendship with all of these beautiful families!

Hi Amy! My husband and I live in South Charlotte, and we are paperchasing to our sweet girl in Changsha. Is this a local FCC group? We are looking to get plugged in with adoptive families in this area. Thanks!

AWWW AMY! You sure sent me on a WONDERFUL trip down memory lane! Your weekend looked like so much fun and I SURE do remember that entry! Look at my comment at the bottom! It was that week I got really serious about Will, and the first time I typed my "saying" that got me through the tough parts of the decision and eventually became the motivation for his name...he was "God's Will" Now God share's him with us and we named him 'Will' Thanks for the memory! and I'm sooo thrilled to see the new family!

We had an awesome time. Can't wait to do it again. :) My girls had sand in the hair, but it probably came from making sand angels. haha
