A Few Familiar Faces

You may recognize a few faces in this picture...that's because you've met them before. Shortly after returning from China, our team came up with a grand idea...to run a half-marathon (13.1 miles).
And after training for 9 weeks, that's exactly what we did last Sunday!
Vince and I ran our first half-marathon in Nashville (2004) and haven't had an opportunity to train for one since. But now that we've been granted some down-time before becoming parents, we've decided to make the most of marriage (pre-children). We had a great time and the weather was beautiful! We hope to run another in the spring.
Jeana, Terri, Brian, David, Kendra, Michelle, Luann...you are my gazelle-homies!

Chosen Lives

This month our church's downtown art gallery, The Bellwether, is hosting an extra special exhibit! The exhibit features photographs of adoptive families in our church. Along with the photos, each family's adoption story will be displayed.

The exhibit kicks-off tomorrow night, and we are so excited! Thurs, Nov 15th we're also hosting Adopt Talk; the community will have an opportunity to hear the family's stories in person, as well as ask questions about their experiences.

All the stories are absolutely miraculous! Our goal is to raise awareness in our community about orphans in our city, our state and our world.

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves,
for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly;

defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Proverbs 31:8-9
