The Cater family in our church organized a fundraising potluck for our adoption tonight. Diane Cater has been an amazing blessing to us in so many ways, but especially in encouraging us in adoption. Being an adoptive parent herself, she understands the struggles and joys that we’ve had, and has believed in adoption for us when we’ve doubted adooption ourselves.
Dozens and dozens of people gathered for a great time this evening in the Cater home. There was plenty of food, fun, and fireworks. And then some more fireworks. We may not regain our hearing for a few days, but it was well worth it!
I’m so thankful for a church family who believes in us, sometimes even more than we believe in ourselves. Thanks to everyone who made this Independence Day one we’ll always remember!
