back in june, i wrote this post sharing how overwhelmed we were by the outpouring of monetary support we've gotten from our friends and family.
it is one thing to receive prayers and love from others (and believe me, that, in and of itself, is pretty stinkin' amazing), but to go one step further and give sacrificially is quite another. makes me cry. every time.
i wrote that post four months ago and still, the gifts continue to come. they've come from close friends as well as from others that just wanted to bless us even though we don't know them as well. and through their giving and their hearts for our little family, we've become closer. it's total crazypants. just this past friday, another incredibly generous friend sent us a beautiful card and a check. blows my mind.
and remember when i was really down about having to update our homestudy? friends of ours read that post, asked us how much we needed, and right then and there gave us what we needed to cover ALL our homestudy update fees. amazing.
this journey to choi boy has been filled with so many ups and downs and we've really learned so very much. one of those lessons has been on generosity and hearts that are cheerful in giving. we have been just so blessed by all the friends and family that have showered us with their love and support, and as we have received, we've learned so much about giving. we hope that as opportunities arise for us to be on the giving end, we will also be able to give with cheerful and joyful hearts...
