"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

Calling all Lurkers

Ok, so now you know a little about me. But if your new to my blog I'll give you a little rundown..

1.) I fell in love with 'the orphan' early this year. My husband & I began the process of adoption but we are currently at a standstill. Nothing more than getting all the paperwork & never going further. Why? Because to put it simply, we are very scared of the emotional issues attached with older child (or toddler) adoption. I'm more than ready to move forward but this is a two person team & I'm sure that we won't be filling out any of those papers in the near future.

2.) My husband is an avid mountain biker. We travel all over Michigan to attend races. It's fun.

3.) We recently were introduced to BMX racing. My 6 year old was hooked on day one!

4.) I have two kids. Caleb is almost 12, Hunter is 6. I've been married for 12 & 1/2 years now and I'm only 31. Uh umm... I mean I'm twenty-eleven. That's better.

5.) I have 3 sponsored kids through Compassion International. I LOVE them. I want so badly to go visit them all, to shower them with gifts and goodies. I hope I have the chance to meet them someday. Sponsorship is addictive! It's one of the most rewarding things I've ever done.

6.) I am a local director of a Foundation named "The for a Day Foundation." We throw parties for children with cancer. Makeovers, goodies, pictures, and visits with firemen & beauty queens. (If you want to start a chapter at a local children's hospital ask me how!)

7.) I love Ethiopia. I think the people are beautiful. It's number 1 on my list of places I want to visit someday.

Ok, now it's your turn! Tell me about yourself. My blog hits vary from time to time but I'm so curious who you are and how you found my blog.

Don't be shy! I don't bite.

And I encourage you to ask the post the same "call out" on your blog and leave me a link! :)

  1. So, I am a "follower", so that is a step up from a lurker, right?

    Compassion is the bond that unites us, but I have enjoyed learning more about you and your family the last couple months :)

    I have also wondered the same thing, when I see so many people have read a post but I have 1 comment. Who are these people??? :)
