Hi Young Family- love your blog. Do you happen to know where Mama Judy got the cat mugs? I have a daughter who loves black cats. Looks like the cocoa is from Harry and David, but couldn't find the mugs? Thanks, and good luck with your adoption, we're keeping you in our prayers!

That is SO fun, cool, and absolutely awesome!! I want YOUR connections!! How amazing, indeed, that God is so creative in providing for our adoptions! Glory to God!!

The Young Family - October 22, 2009 - 11:05 am

Oooo…I wish I knew who Anonymous was so I could email you:). Maybe you'll check! Mama Judy got the mugs at Crate and Barrell!

Can't wait to fill everyone in on Friday! God has a purpose for everything…and very cool that Katherine just adopted. Can't wait to talk about that this Friday with her. Pictures and I'm sure a fun story to come!

How fun and I forgot about the adoption connection! You and Katherine will be best friends forever I am sure. 🙂 Will be a great memory for your kids.

Jehovah Jireh my Provider His Grace is sufficient for me – for me for me. He has provided all my needs according to His riches and Glory…He has given His angels charge over me….Jehovah Jireh cares for me for me for me….Jehovah Jireh cares for me!!! ( part of a camp song that I love to sing here at camp).

I don't know the tune girl…but I'm singing that camp song with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A little pick-me-up…

I got the SWEETEST little goody basket today from one of the SWEETEST people in my life…Mama Judy! Any of you have those people in your life that are like your other momma? This sweet lady started out as one of my photography clients…but she quickly became a dear friend and I endearingly refer to her […]

That is awesome! What a special lady!

Kim - October 12, 2009 - 1:45 am

Just prayed for your sweet Mama Judy. Loved this precious post and the reminder that we should do more serving of others. The goodie basket is fabulous. You've got me craving candy corn. Haven't seen that yet in Hong Kong.
Blessings,
Kim

That is so sweet to have a person who just wants to do something for you- just because 🙂

What a great halloween treat! I love those mugs, my kiddos would love them. Do you happen to know where Mama Judy got them? Thanks!

Our weekend in Columbia…

Yes, we zipped everyday to the adoption conference in Franklin…but we stayed with our sweet family in Columbia. I’ve been doing online training courses…and needed a little break…a blog that is light and makes me smile… Here is Parker and Laney-Lu playing with cousin Tom. Tom has been Parker’s hero since Parker learned to walk. […]

what great pics…so fun..so wish we could have gone…ok, so i know i read where you said you were coming back around these parts…we need to make the next trip work out..so stay on me…and we'll make it work out, yay, kj

Amy - October 9, 2009 - 7:38 am

We are in the same boat. I had a goal of mid-october but things are delayed and so we wait! I am still hoping for end of October but I need to be more realistic. Are you guys hoping for a specific gender? Anyway, good luck – looks like we'll be going through this process together 🙂

The Young Family - October 9, 2009 - 8:06 am

Amy,
We didn't make a gender preference…completely open here…so we're guessing we'll get a boy b/c that list is shorter. We are just so excited either way! I'm with you…the sooner the better but I know a lot of waiting with the hoop jumping is ahead!
