I wish I knew what Mike and I had done to deserve such an outpouring of generosity from so many folks. We have received a ton of baby items (car seat, stroller, bassinet, bouncy seat and more!) from some great friends and family. I looked around our guest room last night and just smiled at everything we have been collecting for our new baby. What a miraculous sight! Knowing that we are actually going to use this stuff one day is beyond what I can comprehend right now. It’s been a long time in the making and I can’t believe we are getting closer to creating our family. Mike and I have been so overwhelmed by everyone who has wanted to help, whether that’s through donating outgrown baby items, praying for us and our adoption journey, or showing interest in what step we’re on in our process. I’m starting to understand that whole “It takes a village” saying, and we’re finding out quickly what a great village we have! Mike and I could never express our gratitude for the things folks have done for us, but we do hope that one day we can pay it forward and be part of someone else’s village when they need it most.
