I love my dad, I love my students, and I love all of you.

I love my dad because he does incredibly thoughtful things, like sending me flowers at school during an especially difficult week:

I love my students because they taught me how to take a photo of said flowers on my phone and then text it to my email (did you know that such a thing is possible???!!!) in order to post it on this blog.

I love all of you because I am completely overwhelmed by the outpouring of support we have had over the past week.  Thank you for your remarkably thoughtful blog comments and emails.  Thank you for posting about our desire to adopt on your blogs and your Facebook accounts.  Our adoption profile had 800 views yesterday--800!  Truly, I am speechless and so very touched.  From the bottom of my heart--I really can't say this enough--thank you.

I am a lucky, lucky, lucky girl. 


  1. I hope that this blitz of media can help you guys. If it doesn't happen soon, know that we all still love you!

  2. I added your button to my blog. I will pray that He will bring your precious babe in His perfect timing (or ASAP, whichever). =)

    I happened upon his Dental Boards dancing routine. Please tell him there's nothing I love more than white boy dancing. Good job!

  3. Congrats!

    Okay, totally random question, how do you text a pic to your e-mail??

  4. I learned that text to email thing last year. Awesome!

  5. You're amazing. That's very cute of your students to teach you that and so sweet of your dad to send flowers.

  6. Okay Rach, I didn't know how else to reach you, but I have an idea for you:
    Another friend of mine has been trying to adopt for a while and as you know, nothing is final until it's FINAL, but she and her husband have just been selected for a baby and she told me about it after reading my blog post for you. Her suggestion is to take business-type cards to OB's offices and advise the OBs that if they have anyone who comes to them pregnant and hoping to place a child for adoption, they could give the mother your information and she could contact you directly. You've probably already thought of this, but if not, I thought it might be worth a shot. Love you!


I love hearing from you!! Thanks for the comment!
