I think that sums up quite nicely how we are feeling! I am overwhelmed at how well the cookbooks are going, I feel so blessed at the many people who are supportive of us and our daughter! If any of you are reading this please know that we are so incredibly grateful it is so hard to put into words. I feel like our daughter will be welcomed home with so many people praying for her and embracing her.

Blessed that we are actually number THREE on the waiting list for our little girl's referral. WOW, each little step feels so surreal, our dreams are becoming closer and closer to being our reality!

We feel so blessed that a big decision that was weighing heavily on our minds and hearts has all come through as we hoped and prayed. We feel at peace and have high hopes that this was exactly the direction we were supposed to head in!

Blessed with the amazing family I have. Two of the sweetest little boys a mother could ever dream of, an amazing husband and best friend (definitely blessed that I can still say that after being together for over 14 years lol). We have wonderful supportive extended families as well, and are so blessed that our boys (and soon our daughter) will grow up being surrounded by so many members of their family.

Every night we pray and thank God for the many many blessings he brings to our lives. Even though we have faced hurdles over the past year that were more then we ever have had to face before we still felt the hand of God through it all and felt blessed! Hope each of you is feeling blessed today!

p.s. I made a little change to our blog, can you find it? If so what do you think?

The Welcome Home Cookbook

Over the past year we have been in the process of adopting a baby girl from S. Korea. In an attempt to ease the financial costs of international adoption we have decided to put together a cookbook of recipes from our family and friends. The response was overwhelming and we are so blessed to have a wonderful cookbook full of tons of great recipes (over 300) that would be a wonderful staple in every home!

We are asking for a $15 donation ($18 total for shipping if needed) that will go towards supporting the mission of Eastern Social Welfare Society (ESWS). Part of our adoption fees include a donation to ESWS to help support the children they are finding forever families for, including our future daughter!

Please feel free to email if you are interested in more information at and we can work out the details to get you your cookbook!
