Sharing Our Story

You all know that I'm an open book....if I have not shared about something specific...you could just ask and I would/will share. I feel strongly about sharing because.....really.truly......I know that one person's story can help another person's situation. We need to encourage and help each other. Whether it is about the bump in our marriage many years ago.....mistakes I've made....my pre-knowing Jesus days.....moving from our newly built home.....or our adoption....I don't mind talking about it. 

I have been encouraged by so many other people....by reading and talking with other's about their life situations. In fact, just this morning I was so encouraged....reading about someone else who is moving from their dream home to a new surrounding. Oh, how I could relate. Don't we all desire to know that we are not alone? That someone understands?

As you also know, we never....ever....thought that we would struggle with infertility. Coming from a large family...I thought I was the Italian fertile Mertile. I believe that is why I kept trying....year after year...to conceive. But God! The Lord had another plan....I believe it was his plan for me from the start. Adoption! Glorious, wonderful.....adoption.

Our adoption story......part 1, part 2, and part 3.  You all know I like to use my words....and it's not a story that could just fit on one page. Whichever path has brought you to the road to adoption....be encouraged.

I read your adoption story a long time ago before your other blog went private. Loved reading it. I went into social work specifically to work in adoptions. The short time I worked in adoptions I LOVED helping families feel complete and loved being a small part of those children having a family who loved them.

I too like Tara remember reading your journey to R&S. I too think there is such power in sharing ones story. You never know who you are going to have an effect on. Thanks for sharing yours with us Mimi!

Mary, your adoption story part 2 with the crazy doctor.... oh my goodness, it's just as funny now as it was the first time I read it. If I need a good laugh and having a hard day, I swear all I need to do is revist that story and picture you in your big white bag filing paperwork.....

That is one of THE funniest stories I have ever read in my life. Your just adorable!

I learned this weekend the power of sharing your story, and the bond that comes with doing so. So glad we met in blogland and have had that chance. Hope you are well.
