Three things stood out to me as being particularly terrific, and here they go.
- Adrienne ATE! I am so grateful to each of you who gave me some helpful advice on my previous post, and I feel like I gleaned so much from what y'all had to offer! I went out yesterday and bought several of the food products reccommended, and the Gerber 'lil crunchies were a HUGE success. And when I say huge, I mean that she ate somewhere in the neighborhood of 25 of those little suckers. It was fantastic. A sweet little girl from the next table over borrowed my camera for a while, and when I got home I was so happy to see she had captured her in action, chowing down.
- Three of my previously unknown to me blog readers came up and talked to me last night. It was so cool to be able to meet those ladies and hear a little bit about them and their stories, and be able to put faces with some of the many "unknown faces" I write to on this blog. I was so thrilled they took the time to come up and say hi!
- Life Choices gave me the opportunity to share our story of adoption with the group last night, and I was so humbled to be able to tell about God's story of Poppy and Adrienne. I can't imagine that I'm ever going to be able to get over what God has done, and that He is allowing me to see part of the big picture by showing me that it wasn't just about our little family. His purposes are always bigger. He uses everyone who is willing to be used, regardless of what they may feel their qualifications are. It still blows me away. That's why I was so excited to be able and share a brief (and I do mean brief... five minutes is not enough time to get it all in, but I tried!) version of our story, knowing that God will continue to use the story to bring about His will in a way my mind isn't able to comprehend.
