First of all, I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who have taken a moment to look at Spencer and Whitney's adoption blog, shared the link to their blog, written them e-mails of hope and encouragement, and in other ways helped the Lord to bless them. You have lifted hearts. I know that Whitney and Spencer are deeply touched and so, so grateful for your thoughtfulness. (If you want to learn more about these wonderful friends of mine, read THIS POST.) And I also want to say thank you to all of you. You've made my little bit of trying to help be so much more than it could have ever been alone. Dealing with infertility is lonely. Thank you so, so much for helping my dear friends to not feel so lonely. You are givers of hope. It means so much to them. Which means so much to me. I really can't even tell you how much.
Also, if you'd like to add Spencer and Whitney's adoption blog button to the sidebar of your blog (and I hope you will!), you can see THIS POST on Whitney's regular blog that gives instructions for how to add the button to your blog. I'll be keeping their button up on my sidebar until I hear the good news. :)
Second of all, for those of you who may be new readers (Welcome!) I just want to say that Spencer and Whitney are so far from being the only people in the world who struggle with infertility. And even in my own circle of friends they're not the only ones. I've shared before about my long-time friends Emily and Richard who are also hoping to adopt. I also encourage you to go and look at THEIR ADOPTION BLOG. And I know that Emily and Richard would appreciate your kind words and prayers and sharing on your blogs and Facebook and Twitter just as much as Whitney and Spencer would.
And, third of all, I just wanted to add a quick reminder for all of you to go and enter THE LAST GIVEAWAY OF THE YEAR! :) It's such a fun giveaway. I just know it'll brighten your day.
Just like bright colors and dear friends. :)
