Russ and I are sooooooo excited about going to the Together for Adoption conference Oct. 1 and 2 in Austin, TX. Seriously....I don't think you know how excited we are. There are some amazing speakers and break-out sessions....which I hope to learn a lot from. But, I am equally excited about meeting other people that have or are adopting. I have mentioned a couple of times on this blog about how it can sometimes be a little hard not knowing a lot of people that have adopted, especially choosing to adopt first. Russ and I cannot wait to meet other couples that have walked that same road and share our same passion ;)
God is providing us with people that share our same passion here in Tupelo as well. 2 weeks ago a group of girls got together for dinner at my house. Each one is in the process of adopting. 2 domestically, 1 from South Korea, and 1 from Uganda. It was an amazing night of hearing what had brought each of us to adoption and how God was doing miraculous things in each of our lives. I cannot wait to have our next night...hopefully with more people that are interested in adoption.
I am so thankful for these "connections" and how God is weaving our lives together :)
