  1. Kathryn, I didn’t realize you had a blog! I love when I find people I actually know that blog too, rather than just someone out there somewhere… Ha ha also I am so excited for you guys and your adoption adventure. It will be in our future in the next few years so I love getting to know people that have done it or are going though the process. You liked Angie Smith’s book? I have been following her story for quite sometime but have never committed to actually getting the book, I would love to hear what you thought!

    • I loved the book. A friend from church recommended it to me last Mother’s Day. I learned a lot from it even though at times I was disliked how much it made me cry. It was great!
