Happy Valentines Day - Share The Love!


Happy Valentines Day From Our Family To Yours! Yes, its a Hallmark Holiday but I LOVE it. My husband always laughs at me but its true. Pretty sure it has something to do with red being my favorite color. :) Hallmark Holiday or not its pretty cute and the chocolate dipped strawberries courtesy of my in-laws make it that much better!

As I was thinking about this day and how I could use it to help others I thought a spread the love theme would be fun! We want to pray for you! We want to help bring your babies home through prayer/support and we want to hear about your journey. So, leave a comment, update us on how you're doing and in the next few weeks we'll share links to your journey's, pray for you, and watch as your stories unfold.

Before I end this post I must encourage you to go watch my precious friend Emily's video - read her post - I was leveled to tears. What an incredible God we serve.

The T-Shirt orders have been placed - they should be here soon! I'll have them all shipped out before we leave for Ethiopia!

We are 4 1/2 months on the waiting list for Baby Smith #1, who may be a boy or girl, under the age of 2. We are excited, anxious, tired, nervous, anxious, joyful, hopeful, frustrated, and anxious to have our baby home. =)

We are having our first fundraiser! We are calling it "Show Some Love Adoption Auction" and it has been so much fun. In fact...if you'd like...we would LOVE a shout out or post on your blog...I'm sure that would help make it an even bigger success ;-)

Much love,
Future Mama
