Every so often, I come across an adoption blog that really stirs those feelings of...maybe one more child...maybe we should consider it...The truth is, this is not the time for us to add another little one, but we can certainly help support another family who is on the journey to adoption.
The Emerson family is in the process of adopting a little girl from Haiti. I was so excited to read about their adoption and learn what it is like right now for those who are adopting from Haiti. They met their little girl, Beatrice, while on a mission trip. It is a really amazing story...you can read about it HERE.
I love the shirts they are selling. They say: 147 million minus one. I knew the shirt would look adorable on Grace. Sometimes I really love the attention that our adoption t-shirts bring- it is fun to be able to answer questions about the statistics on the shirts, to show our love for Africa, etc. and, you never know whose heart you might stir (I wear various adoption t-shirts all the time), but sometimes it feels a little weird for us to be advertising the origins of our family as we are out and about. But, this shirt was too cute to pass up. One little problem...it is not "fancy" enough for Grace. If you remember, she really prefers sparkles, glitter, ribbons, and jewels on her clothes. She does NOT want to wear a "regular" t-shirt. So to solve this little dilemma, I decided that the shirt (which is pretty big on her) can be pajamas until she grows into it. Perhaps by then, she will be a little less "fancy" all the time and she will wear the
shirt in public ;)
