My creative cousin

If you want to feel inspired today (and maybe cry a little) go to this post by my cousin and look up her video. It is really good.

(Becca, I pray for Stewart!)

Don't forget to pray for our troops!

Could you help?

My friend Chris author of this blog made the following post on her blog and I asked her if I could copy it into my blog since I am too lazy to reword it. This really is an easy way for our friends and family to help out those of us trying to adopt.

Hello everyone. As many of you know, we hope to grow our little family through adoption. We appreciate the services of the LDS Family Services. The website that aids so many of us adopting and helps birthmoms know that they can receive counseling and information about their options is It is not a well-known site and can be a difficult site to find unless you know the web address. Recently, had a link to this website, helping adoptive couples and birthmothers alike feel love and support, as well as providing an easier way to find and contact LDS Family Services. It has since been removed, as it was a temporary link, much to my disappointment. So, I ask for your help.

Positive feedback is a strong way to show a need and support for something. I ask each of you to take just a few minutes and send feedback to about how important it is for birthmoms and adoptive couples that a link to be added permanently to the main webpage. To do this, please visit and click on the feedback link on the top of the page. You will be directed to a comment page, where you can add your voice to this need.

I know this may not directly affect many of you, but for those of us who depend upon the sacrifice and love of others to build our eternal family, this would mean so much. Thanks everyone!

If you have 90 seconds, would you mind? Thanks so much!
