Adoption Community Link-Up

Yes, the title is correct-I promise!  

I just want to share Britt’s family birthday dinner with you first.  On Monday evening, we headed to Texas Roadhouse to celebrate with homemade rolls and cinnamon butter.  Is there really any other way to party when you’re three?  😉  At one point, I looked over and Bowen was eating the cinnamon butter WITH A SPOON!  NOOOOO!!!!

M and G came to party too!

In this moment, I said, “Bowen, can you open your eyes a little more?”.

Then I got this…

And even when you think she’s not listening, she always is.  I moved my camera to this cutie and she made Bowen’s face.  hahahaha!

This cutie is THREE!!

And she MIGHT {can you hear the sarcasm?} have a sense of humor.

These two!  One is pre-Bowen and one is post-Bowen…can you tell who is who?

Lots of family fun surrounding our booth and celebrating Miss Britt turning THREE!


Okay, I get asked a lot about recommendations for adoption blogs and I decided I’d just have a little link-up where you can add your blog!  If you’ve adopted, been adopted or are in the process {lots of us would love to follow along}, PLEASE link-up!  Hopefully, we can all find some new blogs to add to our daily reads!  And I’ll post later on Instagram asking the same-for those of you who don’t have a blog.  😉

    Hi Erika! I love following your blog and sweet family. I am a single gal that has not personally felt called to adopt, but I am a part of a church community that has many adopting families. What I have felt called to do is to help them fundraise and assist with the financial burden of adoption. That being said, I started a little Etsy shop and all proceeds go to local adopting families at my church in Raleigh, NC. I share this to show that there are lots of ways to be involved in God’s call to care for the orphans. 🙂 All glory to Him.
