I saw this today on Amy's blog, and I couldn't help but share it here. I don't know the couple, but I do know one thing...children bless our lives, and I have been more than blessed. I was even blessed with two children less than a year apart (heee heee), and I can't imagine having that desire to have a child, and wishing and waiting, with no results. I wanted to share this with my blog readers in hopes that you would also pass the message along...they seem to be a wonderful couple with honest desires to have a family...
Dear friends and family,
As many of you are well aware, for sometime now, we have had the desire to have a family of our own. But as unexpected as life can be, four years ago today, we were told that we are unable to have children. Although this news came as a surprise, our decision to adopt has given us the hope of someday growing our little family.
At the moment, our adoption process is well underway, and we have been waiting patiently for sometime now. We have realized, however, that just sitting around and waiting may not be enough! Yet, we can't quite do it on our own. So, we have come to you for help.
We would like this announcement to reach as many people as possible, in the hopes that it may be received by someone who will be able to help. If it is possible, could you please forward this along to your friends and family, and perhaps invite them to do the same. We do realize, that this may be asking a lot of you and of those you know, and in no way do we want you to feel pressured to send this along, especially if you are not comfortable doing so. We are simply trying to do whatever it takes in order to experience the joy of having a family.
We greatly appreciate anything you can do to help us along, and more importantly, we appreciate your friendship and support.
Thank you so much!
Tim and Janay
