I wanted to take just a moment to thank everyone who is helping Rachel and the kids while I am away. So many people are blessing us with meals, babysitting, bath help, Sunday morning help, play dates, fun outings, and prayers. I can't tell you how much it touches our hearts to be so blessed by so many of you. No thank you card or gift could ever really express the depth of gratitude we have for you. Sure it may seem like just a meal or just a play date or just a simple task, but it really isn't just any of those things.
What you are really doing is standing with us and declaring that you want to see our little girl come home to her forever family and you're willing to do what you can to make that happen. Nothing declares the Gospel of Jesus louder and better than love put into action. We simply just feel so loved by all of you, and that's not something every family who adopts can say they have. So if you are one of those people who donated money to us, donated money to our Both Hands project, came to our Both Hands work day, prayed for us regularly, sat and listened to us talk or cry or celebrate through this process, made a meal, babysat, helped with baths, sat with our kids on Sunday morning to help Rachel out, provided our family with a fun outing or play date, or anything else similar, thanks so much. You have touched our hearts in a deep and profound way, and your actions touch the very heart of God and His desire to see every orphaned child with a Mom and Dad.
