I got the awesome chance to meet one of the couples The Burton's that started Project Love One a non profit. They are a couple who were in the process of adopting a 14 year old from Columbia while we were in the process of traveling to get our precious Mia in China. They brought their sweet girl home soon after we got home. They are helping fund raise for a Foster home very close to our home. We have had the privilege to meet some of these kids, and also watch some of them get adopted to Forever Families. This Non Profit Project Love One is doing this run to raise money to help Bethel Foster Home make a Rec area for the kids there. If you feel God calling you to donate to this please go to the link. Joe and I are running the 10k (I couldn't talk him into doing the Half with me LOL). I have found I Love running especially if it is for the Orphan, it makes it all so much more meaningful and enjoyable. Would love some of you runners to come out and run with us too. :)

We were blessed to have a Special visit from Jennifer , we got to meet them on our way back from Disney World in February before we traveled to meet Miss Mia. When we started the adoption process I stalked the Internet trying to find all the information on China adoption that I could. I met Jennifer through this process and she was just so sweet and answered so many of my questions. I really love how God orchestrates friendships through this wonderful adoption community.
One Crazy thing is Jennifer's husband's parents live in the same town as us, and even Crazier we used to live around the corner from them before we sold our home in August.
It was so neat to see her girls and how they had grown soooo much since February. They have a sweet family and Mia Loved her boys. She really took to Bryce and it was just precious. :)
Mia's new buddy. ( Wish we lived closer)
Jennifer and Mia (don't you love my sassy girls look)
