    For our Jewish friends

    That is really interesting! Thanks for sharing, Annie - I love to learn about the history, background and reasoning behind beliefs and traditions in faith. I really would love to attend a Passover meal one day - there is a Messianic Jewish Temple down the way from me - so I have no excuse not to check it out! Laura

    Baptisms & Christenings

    Infant baptisms have always been a favorite spiritual experience for me - I believe the souls of all present are connected by God in a very special way during these ceremonies - what an awesome venue to declare before God your committment to this life and to celebrate this gift mmmmm - happy thoughts.

    ThirstQuenchers: Encouragement for the Parched

    I just had to share a story that helped renew my faith in people and timing and situations... Last week, I was hurriedly cold-calling on MD offices and I had my digital camera in my purse. I was in an MD office, speaking with the receptionist when I felt my phone on vibrate - I glanced at it and saw "ID Unavailable" - which always means ABRAZO - so I quickly apologized to the nurse, left the office and plopped down in the building lobby to take the call. Wow - it was about a birthmom call, and I was intently listening to all the details, digging in my purse for a pen and writing down all the info. I was so excited that I unintentionally left my camera sitting on the lobby chair before I zoomed away in my car to get back to the office. 30 minutes later I realized my camera was gone. I was frantic b/c it had about 200 pics on it from Christmas to family vacations and I was sure that someone would steal it! Yes, that is embarrasing that I immediately thought that way... I rushed back to the building, jumped out of the car and ran into the lobby. The building seemed empty except for 2 of the sweetest people sitting in the lobby, a man and a woman, waiting for their rides. I asked if they had seen a camera in the sitting area, and the woman exclaimed, "Oh, is that what that was? Yes, yes - I found it and turned it into the Dr.'s office right there." I jumped up and down, ran into the MD office and sure enough, the camera was waiting for me. I went back into the lobby, and with tears of gratitude, thanked them for their sweet hearts and courtesy and honesty. The lady said, "oh no, no! That's just what I do. You were the blessed one, weren't you? What a blessing - what a blessing! That is so wonderful and I was happy to do it. I never take anything that doesn't belong to me, that's just not right! You have a blessed, blessed day and New Year!" All the while, the man was just grinning and nodding his head with "Ummm-hmmm - Yep - uh-huh" to all the woman's words. I left with a full heart and a huge portion of gratitude What an awesome thing to have such angels in my path --- at the very time when I needed a shot of faith!!

    Who Birthmoms Are

    I agree - but that it should be on Network TV, so this positive and beautiful love story can be seen by even larger audiences, who may not :tune-in" to the Family channel... Laura

    Picking & Choosing

    I cannot imagine using an agency that did not get to know the birthparents and the adoptive parent on a very personal, one-on-one level. Thank heavens for this dedication - because God works through the eyes, ears, voices and hearts of the folks at Abrazo for the best of the children and the families with whom they are matching. And I agree, too, that we have to listen to the whispers that come from deep, deep in the soul that tell us we're making the right choice.
