Jill, I say your blog on the blog list on Kari's and a few other adoption blogs I read. We are with AWAA adopting from Rwanda. I just read that you are in TX and that your husband is deploying- just wondering if you guys are stationed at Ft. Hood? We live in Temple, about 15 min from Ft. Hood and thought it would be fun if you were an adoptive family close in our vicinity! It is super hot here right now, but Fall and Winter are mild and super nice!! Laura Bowers

I've missed you, Jill! Hope you are feeling well. Keep us posted about Marshall's deployment - glad you are near family during this time.

JILL!!! We were in Killeen this past weekend and heard your news through the grapevine! I am sorry you have had to put your adoption on hold, but what a wonderful reason to need to do so! Congrats to you and Marshall. We'll be praying for you during the deployment and pregnancy.

Love,
Amy & Amelia

Jill--
SO relieved to see you back here :) I've been wanting to call, but was ashamed at how slowly I'm progressing through Hope Lives and didn't want to admit it! I've just read some GREAT books--when you have time (in like 3 years) I'll pass them along to you :) I hope you are doing well, call me when you are up to it!
many hugs,
apryl

Just too fun! Praise God for the little one. Jason is deployed too. Where are you in TX. Maybe we could catch up?

Jeannette Eisenhauer said...

Kind of hard to keep my excitement in...

Jill, what a LOT of news! I just checked your blog for the first time in about a month (I've been behind on my adoption buddies blog-stalking) and wanted to see how adoption #2 has been progressing... wow! Hope you are liking TX. Wish we could meet you at the AW reunion. :(

Jill, Haven't visited in awhile. It's amazing how people you even feel a kindred spirit with you don't check up on for way too long! Congratulations on your pregnancy and second adoption. You will be so wonderfully (and sometimes crazily!) busy.

Love,
Danielle
