Adoption Maternity Shoot

For the past two months the waiting list number has not moved. The first month I was an icky puddle of emotional mush on the floor. Then after the Master chiseled my heart a little I have come to a place of peace. Waiting on His timing. Celebrating the life I have now. Pulling my family and friends closer to me as I lean on them for support. 

So what have I been up to? Well, having this adoption maternity shoot done. I am totally in love with how it turned out and am so thankful to Stein Photography for helping me to preserve this portion of the adoption journey.  

Another thing I have to tell you is the launch of our next fundraiser. Nick and I are firm believers in the fact that it takes a village to raise a child. Keeping in that spirit we are doing a puzzle fundraiser. Each piece of the puzzle will be ten dollars. We will write your family's name on the back of the puzzle piece. I will mount the puzzle on plexiglass and the completed work will hang in Sophia's room. This will be a forever reminder to her of how many people loved her before she was even known. If you would like to be part of our village you can donate in person or through the PayPal button on this blog. Just let me know in the comments what name you would like on the back of the piece. I am so excited to get this started! Here is a picture of what the completed puzzle will look like.

Thank you to Emily Rose from Pop Art Pug for helping us with the image for the puzzle!
