Good News from Friends

The Breedloves and Jocelyn passed court this week, and we are so thankful that they're soon to be on their way to bringing their babies home. Both Amy and Jocelyn have been such supportive friends to us through everything--the good and the bad--and we rejoice with them today! It's a little bittersweet knowing they're going to be seeing Abenezer before we are, but I'm so happy at the thought that he's going to get hugs and kisses from Jocelyn and Amy so soon. Both these women have hearts of solid gold. Congratulations and Godspeed, you guys!

I don't think you could have better people to go love on Abenezer while he waits impatiently for you :) Hang in there. We still have all of our fingers and toes crossed!

You are so sweet to rejoice with those who rejoice, even in the midst of your own mourning...
still praying hard for you, sweet lori!

It just kills me that you haven't been able to rejoice too. I hope your day is soon-really soon. You're in our thoughts and prayers!!!

Jocelyn said...

Thank you Lori for such nice words. I hope that we will be rejoicing with you very very soon. If I get to meet little Abe, he is going to know how much you and Ted are fighting for him! I am thankful to have you in my life too!!

hi. we don't know each other but you left me the sweetest comment about my experience passing notes to the stranger on a plane.

as i come here and read your experiences, i wanted to take a moment and wish you luck and let you know i'll be sending good thoughts your way.

pass along the story to whomever your wish. the more folks that embrace the bravery of human interaction, the better.
