To start… Wes (and sometimes I) have been working on this car for over a month. We are happy to announce, it is finished! So, come buy it. $7800. Runs great (so much so, that I’m not scared to get in it and crank it up… like, it doesn’t act like an old car…) Needs very little to be 100% complete. Would be lots of fun if you’re into cars or a mobster.
Secondly, we finally built (okay, zip-tied) a pen for the kids to play with the rabbits in. They love it…
The kids can move around, the rabbits can hop around..
Or be held like a baby…
Judah stayed in the pen about… 10 minutes.
Lucy stayed in the pen for 2 hours. I’m not even kidding. I looked at my phone based on when I had texted someone. 2 hours and 4 minutes before she was ready to get out. Rabbit pen = Success.
And finally… If you’ve known me a long time, then you probably know my friends Wes and Laura. They have a great story of how God put them together, and they have the cutest little guy on planet earth.
I mean.. look at that cutie!
They are also some awesome believers and really want to follow God’s call to adoption.
Many of you probably don’t know this about me, but I was adopted. Not a full on, given up at birth adoption, but adopted when my mother passed away by my Aunt and Uncle. To me, that’s an even more incredible feat because they chose to take in a 12 year old girl. Who would want that?! Well, I’m forever grateful for them choosing to fully accept me as one of their own. Adoption means a lot to me.
And also to Wes and Laura. They are working towards getting enough funds to adopt their own second child. James needs a little sibling! They also want to help a child who may not be coming into the best of circumstances. Adoption is a win win for everyone.
I could not support a better couple for adoption. I’ve known Wes… a while.
This was us at my Junior Prom, back before Wes always kept a beard. I have some older pictures of us, like when we were 5, but I didn’t want to dig those out. Sorry, Everyone. You’re welcome, Wes.
And his wife Laura? Fantastic. The best little (seriously! Look how cute an petite she is!) Mamma you could ever find.
The Wes’ are also very close friends. We are always graced with a visit from them when they come to visit. They live in Denver. Dumb Denver…
They are seriously some of the best folks around, and if you’d like to help them get their next baby, I know they would be eternally grateful. Here’s where you can learn more about them, and here is where you can donate to help them bring their next child home.
Please consider giving a little. Adoption is an amazing thing we are blessed with and I know it changed my life. Help them change someone else’s.
