beautiful hair & a special opportunity

Last week, my friend Cate braided Destany's hair for me.  I'd been stalling -- for quite some time -- because it's not so easy to lean over to twist and braid those beautiful curls these days! 

Destany had a wonderful time hanging out with their family, and we are both loving the creative style Cate did!  She has three daughters, so she has more practice at braiding than I do, and braids much more quickly than me.  Now I have the luxury of re-braiding a section at a time to keep her hair looking neat.  What a treat.  Thank you, Cate!


Incidentally, Cate and I met on an international adoption hair care website with over 2,000 members.  At the time, we lived less than two miles apart.  To meet another family that loves the Lord, is passionate about adoption, and lived just down the street.....well, let's just say we both knew it was no coincidence! 

Not too long ago, I posted about the desperate need for godly families to love and support our modern-day orphans and widows -- including through adoption.  I also talked about how Andy and I long to support other adoptive families in their journey to bringing more children into their home.  Well, here is our first opportunity! 

Cate and Sean are selling some beautiful pendants on their blog, to raise money for their next adoption.  I would love it if you would check them out!  It is such a privilege to be able to support them as they begin this journey again.  Their three daughters, who came home as toddlers and preschoolers, cannot wait to have a baby in the family.  And we can't wait to see who God brings to their family!  We love you guys, and will be praying for you all along the way.

Kiara, I will definitely be looking into Cate and Sean's pendants. We have been so blessed to have you ladies spend time with us and teach us about hair and skin. My little girls are just blossoming here and we know that however long we are given as their parents, it will be life changing for us and for them. God truly gave us an enormous blessing when He brought these three little ones into our lives and again for me when He led me to your group. Thank you so much!

Hi Cherie,
I'm glad the group has been a blessing to you! We're so glad to have your family involved. :) I pray for your family when I think of you all -- especially for the long term plan for the girls. I know God has a plan, and I hope it is for them to be with you! :)
I'm glad you'll be checking out Sean & Cate's pendants. They are so beautiful!
