Ted from HOGL emailed us on Tuesday night confirming that they received the hard copy of our home study. That was great news! He was also asking why we were requesting a baby girl. Greg and I have talked and prayed about adoption for years now and we both feel that the Lord wants us to adopt a baby girl from Asia. One reason being, since we have been involved with the Free Chains project through World Causes, we've felt led to adopt from Asia to help fight the injustice of sex trafficking. We realize that sex trafficking is a major issue in many areas of the world, Asia being one of the highest. We tried our best to explain that to HOGL and are praying that can see our hearts and reasoning behind our request for a daughter and realize that we aren't just being picky. We haven't been matched yet. I heard from the grape vine that they may have an unmatched baby boy at HOGL now. We are trying to be patient and continue to pray each day for our daughter.
We are currently in ATL so Greg could help out with the Do Good conference. My sister in law has introduced me the the cutest baby clothes ever! There is this lady who designs super cute and trendy baby clothes called Matilda Jane. I love almost all of them. They are a little pricey and you can't buy them online unless there is a sale. They have home shows like Pampered Chef or you could find some some of them on ebay. Here is the website to check them out. I will definitely be recommending these clothes to clients who have little girls who don't know what to wear for a photo-shoot! Here is a link to her website:
