Weaving Families New Blog and Forever Families Friday


I don’t think it’s any secret that I LOVE Weaving Families Adoption Ministry. Check out the side bar to find their rather large button….I just couldn’t use an itty bitty button for this amazing ministry. The Caswell’s just created a new blog for Weaving Families and have started “Forever Families Friday”. I never planned to share personal stuff on the AAB blog or talk much about our children (well, for now just our 1 child), but adoption ministry and orphan care is really all tied in together if you think about it, so I’ll be answering their weekly question here. If you’re an adoptive parent, please join us!

This week’s question……

“When we received our referral, we shared the news with our family by…………”

We were so boring. I had this huge plan for how we were going to tell our families and in no way was a phone involved. It looks like I’m reserving those plans for our umpteenth adoption because when it came down to it, we got the call at 8:04 pm, jumped up and down and cried a little and then each ran to different rooms with our cells to start calling every body. See? Very boring. We did go to a cigar store because Danny just HAD to buy “It’s a boy!” cigars for everyone (that are now rotting away somewhere, I’m sure). We ran to Walmart for printer ink while we waited for the pictures to be emailed because our agency was giving out so many referral that night that they were calling every one first and sending out pictures a few hours later. The next day we framed a couple of pictures to give to our parents. And that was that.

Thanks for sharing Terry! We had so many- well I had so many plans to share creatively but they all fell through. Once you get that call you just have to tell. I can't figure out how in the world I lasted so long with Gannon.
Thanks for your continuous support and encouragement.

FUN!! I didn't know that story. Funny how emotion crowds out plans. I think this is a great idea for the AAB blog.
