Last night I had the privilege of attending a mom’s night out of sorts.  My dear friend Sharon hosted a gathering at her house with the purpose being to learn how to do their daughters’ hair.  Ali, who is great with child (sweet Caroline is due very soon!) came to teach.  Ali has three sisters and is expecting her third daughter so she was armed with great tips.  I thought it was such a great idea!  Of course I do not have any daughters (yet!) but I do have hair accessories in the form of Bows for Life! She graciously invited me to bring my bows and share our adoption story with the hopes that we could raise more money for Zoe.

There were about eight of us altogether and I ended up bringing home almost $120 for our adoption!  They were incredibly sweet, generous women and I look forward to seeing some of them again soon at our Parent Practicum in a few weeks.  It just thrills me to have to come home and make more bows because so many of the ones I’d already made have sold.

God is so good and His grace and provision continue to bless us beyond measure.  Somehow, going through this adoption, knowing we’re depending 100% on His provision, brings an extra measure of joy as I do my weekly jobs that contribute to our family financially.  Whether it be watching other children, keeping the nursery at church, or cleaning an office; blessing upon blessing.

May I never lose sight of the One who owns it all.


Thank you Sharon and Ali.  You’re both precious to me!
