I am feeling extremely blessed these days……and extremely thankful! I have so much to be thankful for right now, and I am overwhelmed with God’s goodness and love for me these days! I have had the joy and privelege of talking to our baby’s new adoptive family on the phone several times, and I couldn’t be happier. We are still waiting for word on when we will be meeting face-to-face, but we are hoping that it will be early next week.
I am also thankful for a special day with Allyson. We went to tour Howard Payne University as a possible college for her. We had a fantastic time, and were very pleased with all aspects of our campus visit. We are also planning a visit to Hardin Simmons University, and possibly another place or two, but we are starting with these two. If you happen to be an alum of either of these two schools, please let me know………as I’d love to hear from you about your school. Allyson is seeking out a small school in Texas — but that’s about the only thing we know at this point. It will be a fun journey — a new phase of parenting, for sure!
