Mara said...

I have been reading your blog for a while but this is the first time I've commented. I am so thrilled for you!! As someone who has gone through fertility issues myself for my first child, and I'm considering adoption now, I have so many questions!! I an so excited for you! Would you mind if I e-mailed some of my questions. This is is so inspiring to me!

Mara said...

I am so excited for your family!I have been reading your blog for a while (I love it!) but this is the first time commenting. As someone who had fertility issues before having my first child and now considering adoption, I feel like we have so much in common. Could I e-mail you with some questions about the adoption process? I've done research but it's so different than asking a real person!
Congrats again!

Ms. Jarvis said...

Abby,

I'm a long time follower of both your blogs but I was so touched by your recent post! I'm so happy your family has decided that adoption. How blessed your family will be...

Best,
