One Thousand Thanks

A few weeks ago I tried to create a blog post with every name of every person who has helped us in some way. Donated stuff for our 7 yard sales, donated money, donated time, cooked a meal, watched a kid, prayed, spread the word, bought our stuff, held our hands…

Like I said, I tried. It literally became impossible. I had hundreds of names. And with every blink of the eye one more name came to mind. That friends, is how you bring a child home. When there are too many names, too many acts of kindness, too many acts of obedience. So many that eventually everything comes together and a miracle happens. A family has a child and a child has a family. So thank you to all of you. More than we can even figure out how to say. People always say things like “words aren’t enough.” Well, people say that because it’s true. You were used in a great way, and we pray that God blesses you as He has blessed us.
