To our Adoption Donor

Because of you -today I was able to hear this baby girl’s laughter.

Because of you -today I was able to sing to her, rock her and tell her how loved she is.

Because of you- one day I will watch her take her first step.

Because of you- one day I will kneel beside her bed and listen to her bedtime prayers.

Because of you- one day I will take her hand and walk her into her kindergarten class.

Because of you- one day I watch her discoverer her strengths and her weaknesses.

Because of you- one day I will watch her drive a car for the very first time.

Because of you- one day I will watch her walk across the stage and receive her diploma.

Because of you- one day I will watch her take her groom by the arm and say I do.

Because of you- one day I will hold her babies and tell them their mommy's story...

Her story that YOU are a huge part of.

Her story that wouldn’t be the same with you.

Her story that became a part of who she is- because of who you chose to be.


Every day is a chance for us to be someone’s hero. Thank you for being ours.

We too thank you donors for giving us this adorable, precious little grand daughter. She will be very loved (and probably spoiled) by all her family.

Amy,

Thank you for reminding me today that there are people out there that have a heart for adoption.

When we sent our adoption letter out (with hesitation) we knew that God would provide. There has been negative feedback but God continues to provide in His time!

Havyn is beautiful...beyond words!!!

Love,
Christie

And to your donor...you have not only affected the Blocks but others as well!

Hi! My name is Lindsay Svehla, and I’ve been addicted to your blog. You’re such an inspiration to me and I hope to one day to have a family like yours. God has put on the hearts of my best friend and me to help orphans in Ethiopia. I was just wondering if you knew of any organization or people we could get in contact with about setting up a mission trip next summer. We’re really excited to see what God has planned for us, and our church has graciously supported us in funding. Thanks for all your help, and God bless your family.

Love in Christ,
Lindsay Svehla

What a beautiful expression of gratitude. Truly a blessing that God provided a donor who stepped out in faith and because of this persons faithfulness and obedience this angelic girl will be given so many opportunities. Amy, I believe the Lord has big and special plans for this child.

We are currently in the process of saving money for an adoption, and praying for a miracle that it doesn't take us years and years and years to save this money. This post brought tears to my eyes. What a precious gift!

Yes!! We just opened our adoption fund at our church in Austin as several of us await our kids from all over! Mine from Rwanda!

The sacrifices and choices that we make are a blessing to others. I am so thankful to be able to share a small part of this blessing in your life.

May your donors be blessed beyond comprehension!!
