Hey Lindsey! I was just over on my adoption agency's blog, and I happened to see that you left a comment over there. (The post about staff member Lisa P.) It appears we have the same agency! How cool is that!

It's a small world, after all.

If you ever want to email me, send it to mamitaj at gmail dot com. That is not my regular address, but I check it often enough.

Love,
Julie

Chris and Lindsey, I've been a blog stalker -- can't even remember how I came upon your blog in the first place. I went to OBU a couple of years behind Chris and remember him from my involvement in BCM -- he probably doesn't know me! Anyway, I've been stalking for a couple of months, and I'm just so excited for you two! Praying that these next phases go so very quickly! Jana (Barsaleau) Brown
