Thursday Thirteen

Today Is:
National Day Of Prayer
For The
Orphans Of Guatemala

There are THOUSANDS of Guatemalan Children stuck in government red tape waiting to come home to parents who are heartbroken they have to wait so much longer to bring home their babies! Please go to JuJu's blog for more info

Thirteen Reasons Adoption ROCKS!

1. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.
2. No extra Baby weight - on the flip side -
you have no one to blame for those extra few!
4. They are usually sleeping through the night - on the flip side they have usually slept with their foster moms - STILL trying to break that habit!
5. You get to choose the sex of your baby - THAT's AWESOME!
7. You have this other family that you are connected to for life!
8. It is one of the greatest ways to be reminded of God's awesome love
9. NO stretch marks
10.All the cool kids are doing it - Hahaha - JK
11.There are SOOO many children that need great homes
12.You get to travel somewhere exotic and bring home the COOLEST souvenir!
13. It is SUCH a blessing!

I admire you so much for adopting! You make very good points...maybe one day when we can afford it, we'll have a 4th by adopting! Plus, Annie is such a cutie and sweetie pie, she's reason enough to consider ;)
