A Grand Time in Arizona

It has been way too long since my last post. So many great things to share. Our family got the privilege of attending a wonderful adoption conference called Together For Adoption this past weekend. It was held in Arizona. We drove out a couple days early and I got to spend time with a blogger friend Mary . It was a sweet visit that probably could of lasted for hours and hours. She is waiting for another little sweetie in China and you can pray her file gets expedited quickly. There was so much great stuff we took in from this conference and so many great people and stories. People are truly living out the Gospel and being Christ's hands and feet in this broken world it is just beautiful. One of the things that stood out to me the most was at Dennae Pierre's breakout session. She said "If we think that because we have adopted we have done our part or are doing are part to care for the orphan, we are wrong. They are no longer orphans. They were once orphans but are no more". I just LOVE that. It made me think and process other practical ways our family can be caring for orphans.

We ended our trip with a train ride to the Grand Canyon with friends. The Canyon was beautiful. I would have Loved to sit and really just take it all in. However with little ones that is not always the case :) I had to watch them and keep telling them not to get to close or mommy's heart would burst out of her chest :) God was truly at work and is doing amazing things.
