SO THAT'S MY FRIEND AMY!!!! The number of children blessed to have her as a mother are now 12!
12 is a good number... don't you think? After knowing Amy I know this is her gift- being a mother.Some people don't like twelve. They say it's too many. I celebrate that Amy has such a grace and courage in the gifts God has given her. I celebrate the lives she has changed by surrendering her own life to serve others.
What makes it worth living???
Looking back and seeing this.....
Looking out on a field and seeing this.... Soooo I think for Amy.... 12 is AWESOME!
So, Amy and crew, the next time some sad little person asks you WHY you would EVER want to adopt 5 more kids...
I know that not everyone celebrates our adoptions the same way they do pregnancies. I know some people don't see the 12th child the same way they saw the first. We KNOW that's not at all God's view. God celebrated each of your babies before the world began. We know that and we are REJOICING with you and with them. I can hardly wait to meet them.
So for everyone who wants to celebrate with Amy would you consider donating a gift of money to help them get started with these 5 new kids? I have placed a Pay Pal donate button on the top right hand corner of my blog. It's SUPER easy. Just push the donate now button. I will send every penny I collect to Amy.
EDITED TO ADD!!!!! Thanks to Elizabeth (and her friend) Amy now has her own BLOG BADGE!!!! Take a look- it's on my side bar. If you want to you can add the blog badge to you blog for the next week or so and it will take your readers to this post so they can attend the virtual shower. How cool is that? Thanks Elizabeth!
I considered a gift card or buying gifts but I know that Amy is so thrifty that she will make the money go farther than I ever could! Let's help them out! Thanks for coming to our virtual shower. Make sure you leave Amy a comment below to give her new kiddos a shout out!
