Help!! Please :)

I am feeling very overwhelmed this week. On top of working eleven hours a day, we are trying to put together an adoption fundraiser, make changes to our profile, take out another adoption loan from our bank, and this weekend is my family reunion so I am going to be baking/decorating a lot of cupcakes.

We also have an appointment this week to look at a house. As if I didn't have enough stress, Adam thinks we should put an offer in on a new house. He's been obsessed with this house for months and the price just went down. I agreed to go look at it. I honestly have no intention of moving from this house for a long time.

Tillie from A Nuttier Life is helping us change our profile and is doing an amazing job. I am very excited about the changes. I don't know what I would do without her help.

I am now looking for some help from all of you. Please :)

We are looking for a quote to go on our cover under our names. I am thinking maybe something about family?

If you know of any good quotes (or maybe even a short poem) that would make sense for the cover of an adoption profile, please leave them in the comment section.

  6. I will think on this and let you know!

  7. It's already been written on your comments but I just want to second my favorite quote. I have it on the back of note cards that I send out as thank you's and such. "The love of a Family is life's greatest blessing."

  8. wow, I can't add another one, these are all wonderful.
    Good luck with picking one and with the changes. GOOD THINGS ARE COMING

  12. These are all so sweet. I hope that you find something that feels just right. Have you thought about something that touches on the perspective of the birth family as well? I wish I had something to suggest...

    (break for a quick google search - these are a few quotes jumped out to me, not exactly about family, but more about love.)

    there can be no more hurt, only more love. ~ Mother Teresa
