Blog Hop--Fundraising for a Cause

Welcome to my blog hop!  What a great time of the year to get some shopping done while supporting an awesome cause.  Join our fundraiser HERE through the end of October. We are thrilled to be going back to China to adopt two children this time around, a boy and a girl with similar special needs. Both kiddos are one and in different provinces.  I just found out that travel will be 18-20 days total, plus the flights there and back.  I'm going to miss my at-home babies! We are planning to travel in December.  About us:  we are both special education teachers and are honored to be able to parent the four children that we have.  We adopted our son Christian in 2010 from China, and we are THRILLED to be going back.  He was just explaining to his friend today that his new little buddy brother is going to have an arm just like his, and that his little brother and sister will have little legs that kind of look like his arm. We haven't yet explained to Christian that his sister will need an amputation first. Both of our new babies are so perfectly made, and we are so ready to hold them in our arms. 

Christian tells me every day how much he loves this family. 

I am one lucky Mama, let me tell you.
