Beware of Fan Girl

In my "normal state" I am NOT a fan girl. I'm not one to stand in line and collect autographs at a concert. I stay far away from book signings. I'm not great at talking to people I don't know (unless they are extroverted chatterboxes...I love those people...they keep the world spinning for the rest of us!).

But I have just purchased a ticket on a little dream and I have a plan to be a BIG.OLE.FAN.GIRL...at...drum roll...

Together For Adoption Conference

Let me tell you...there are some people I am hoping and praying will be there!! They've written their adoption journeys in the form of blogs! I've read some of them as a book, from the beginning to the end! That's not easy! Blogs are set up in reverse with most recent posts first. So you have to be dedicated to a lot of clicking to start at the beginning and keep your spot! 

I am hoping the following will be there, cause I feel like I know them even though they have NO IDEA who I am (These are linked if you would like to visit!):

Andrea from Babe of My Heart and Wiphan .

Gwen and Suzanne from 147 Million Orphans . Gwen ( Oatsvall Team ) and Suzanne ( The Journey ).

Then:

Author Kim de Blecourt who wrote of her adoption in the book: Until We All Come Home . (Spoiler, I already know she'll be there!)

Now I don't know if she (3 she's) goes to such things but I would love to see:

Kristin at Spread More Love

Jean from There's No Place Like Home 

Laurel from A New Journey of Faith 

Then those who I would love to say to: "Your journey challenges me to go deeper into what is God's best for me" would be:

Tina from Kacirek Family

Lovelyn at Moments with Love

Carolyn from Project Hopeful

Megan from Blessed with a Burden and author of Miracle on Voodoo Mountain

She likely won't be there but:

Katie Davis, author of Kisses from Katie


There's more, people, more!! I can't wait!! I NEEEEED this!! I need to renew my calling. I need to be soaked in it! 

To top it all off, my firstborn and his wife to be will be married and living about 15ish minutes from the conference so I can crash at their house and get some visiting in!! Cancel Mother's Day and my birthday and my Christmas present!! I've got all I want this year!!

  1. Girl... your blogspot on adoption is likely as good as anything else anyone would have to say!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. :) It's just like opening the mailbox and seeing mail from a friend!
