30 Days of Thanks continued...
Giving Thanks: Days 9-12 | The M House
Day 9
I am thankful for our adoption agency. We chose a small agency for several reasons. We knew it would take longer for us to adopt, but we wanted that personal connection that you can't get with the larger agencies. Our agency was with us every step of the way. We couldn't have asked for a better group of ladies.

Day 10
I am thankful for small miracles. Part of our finalization for the court required us to list all our adoption expenses. Every adoptive parent we talked to told us not to worry about the money; it will find its way to you. I can remember thinking they were crazy. Looking back, I am amazed how right they were! Small miracles... :)

Day 11
I am thankful for nutty bars. (I have to give myself at least one silly!) Seriously, though. I love nutty bars. They are my favorite. All chocolatey, peanut buttery, cookie goodness wrapped into one crispy temptation. Mmm Mmm Mmm I know it's oh-so-wrong, but boy can they cure a bad day! LOL

Day 12
I am thankful for the unexpected. Huh? Well, not always, but in the case of our daughter I am thankful for just that. In adoption, it's best to be prepared for the unexpected. Today, we have a healthy baby girl thanks (in part) to the unexpected. Sometimes life just works in mysterious ways.

  1. Hi Kerry, visting from Pail and wanted to congratulate you on your adoption. I'm a fellow baby-loss mommy too so I know what that experience can do to your hope and confidence. I am just so happy to hear of these wonderful stories about couples finding their path. My son is about the same age as your Z (born 12-18-12)!

    Glad to meet you!
