I started remembering everything that has gotten us to this day. I was in church on January 30th when I got the email from Andrea letting me know Dariya was ours, I wept...
Over 200 people or families donated to help us bring Dariya home. Some people we don't even know, I am overwhelmed.
135 people attended our pasta dinner and silent auction (a lot of the same folks that had already donated but, they came, supported us and donated again)...I am overwhelmed.
36 golfers played in our All for Dariya golf tournament. I am overwhelmed.
The people who have prayed for us incessantly, I could not be more thankful for our family, friends, small group and bloggy buddies...I am overwhelmed.
My parents who have put their lives on hold to stay here at the house with Aidan & Alayna, I am overwhelmed.
The people who have volunteered to take the kids to give my parents a break...truly overwhelming.
The RR volunteer staff that go above and beyond the call of duty to help us adoptive parents, they answer every question, can be reached at a minutes notice and are always a wealth of information and guidance. Superheroes in disguise. From Andrea to Michelle to Lu to Courtney to Mel to Nancy! I am overwhelmed.
The RR families that are on this same journey to bring their own child home. Some of these people are etched on my heart for life. I am so thankful that God placed these sweet people along our path. I am overwhelmed.
I will spend today basking in the glory of how God has placed YOU in our lives to help us follow his plan. We would not be packing and getting ready to travel without you. Thank you for supporting us, loving us, praying for us and donating so generously to Dariya so that she may know life outside a brick building in a loving family and grow up with siblings who will dote on her everyday.
I am thankfully overwhelmed with your love.
