Some of our greatest friends, Matt & Rachel, are beginning their process of bringing home their baby from El Salvador. They are at the beginning of their race and I hope that their journey is peaceful and quick. I know that adoption is one of the most emotionally draining things I have EVER done, but it is also one of the most rewarding things as well. God revealed so many things to me throughout our process that I would not change a thing.

Anyhow, go visit their blog and give them a comment full of encouragement. Especially those of us that have adopted or are in the process. Love on them for a minute and allow your words to encourage them.

Here are some pics of us last year before they moved away from us. We love them and miss them. They are friends that even though you don't live close to and talk to often, they are deep, special, life long pals!

Love you guys!
