Support Adoption!

Back when we first started the adoption process, we were invited to an Ethiopian restaurant in Oklahoma City called the Queen of Sheba. Once a month, a group of families from the Oklahoma City area who have adopted or are in the process of adopting get together.  We have loved being able to go and meet other families who are or have been in the same shoes that we are in.  We also love the fact that Tate will grow up having friends from Ethiopia!:)

A few weeks ago, we went back to the Queen for the first time since we have brought Tate home. It was so neat to be able to introduce everyone to Tate!  We were also very excited to  meet a lot of new families in the adoption process!  These families are so much fun and are doing a lot of great fundraisers to help with their adoption expenses!

The Andrews' are "Recycling Love" highlighting many adoptive families until February the 18th and helping them raise money by selling some really great t-shirts.  Families earn $10 for every t-shirt sold!  We were able to meet the Linck's, Habuda's and Ellis' at the Queen! So check it out and buy a shirt!

 The Linck's are also making some yummy cupcakes for Valentine's Day.  We ordered some of the red velvet and they were delicious!

The Ellis's also have a really cute etsy store!  Clutches, key rings, coozies, t-shirts, and some other super cute stuff!  You must go check it out! I ordered Tate the robot shirt for Valentine's Day!  I can't wait to see him in it!

We also got to meet Lindsay and Brian who have some really great fundraising stuff going on!  Lindsay also has an etsy store where she is selling some adorable scarfs and headbands!  They are also selling some opened eyes t-shirts but you better hurry! The deadline to order those is tomorrow! My friend Laura already ordered hers! (Laura, you are the best!) 

Please go and check out these blogs and support their adoptions!

Thanks Shannon for the shout out! I know all of us truly appreciate how those of you that have already been down this journey support those of us who are still on it. You are an encouragement and a blessing! Just one look at Tate is a reminder that our hearts desire will be filled in His time...and it will be SO worth it!

Can't wait to see you again soon!

Oo, I love this post!! Those headbands are super cute, as well as the robot.

What's Tate think of all the snow? :)
