For about three years now I have seen one of my best friend’s and her husband struggle to have a baby. It’s been heartbreaking. You know how you sometimes see people and think “Wow, those people would be amazing parents and should totally be pro-creating.” And then sometimes you see others and think…well..not so much. My friends are the first set. Great people, who would make fantastic parents.
Well last night my friends finally got their baby. They adopted her and she is absolutely beautiful. Not only is she perfect, but she is so lucky. She was wanted so much and has been blessed to be with two wonderful, loving parents and people. Plus, her Auntie B.o.B. is going to spoil her rotten!
Today, I am thankful for Madeline. You can read my their adoption story here.
What are you thankful for today?
That is amazing and congrats to them! There are so many babies out there who need great parents and she is so fortunate to have found hers!
What a blessing!! I believe people who adopt are VERY SPECIAL in God's eyes! So happy for your friends and you!
Wow! So exciting! Adoption has 2 very special places in my heart!!! What a blessing it is. Congrats to your friends for finally becoming parents!
So cool! Brought tears to my eyes, and I have't even read their adoption story yet…I will after I write this.
The look like wonderful people, and now wonderful parents. Children are a miracle, no matter how they come into your life. Your friends will be forever changed…in sooo many good ways!! Thanks for sharing!

Alright…now I am FULL ON CRYING!!! That was such an awesome and amazing story! Thank them for sharing their story. I am truely inspired by both couples! And I think Madeline is going to grow up with the double the love and support…sooo awesome for her!
I am crying too!!!
I am thankful for Autumn and Jay, and their loving parents, for guiding them through a most difficult time and bringing a blessing into this world. Thank you for sharing their story. ALL of those families are an inspiration, and as the mother of four, it is lesson to those of us who might face the same as parents of teenage boys and girls. I am blown away by the selflessness and love and reception to God's plan. Wow.
How beautiful is that picture, and story! Congrats to all of them! Your friends are amazing people and Madeline is a gorgeous name.
That is awesome.
This is still bringing a tear to my eye. So happy for them!!!
Cool for them. I am thankful that today is a rest day for me. These old legs are screaming at me for an off day.
That is awesome!!! Thank you for sharing this today. 🙂
Congrats to your friends!
It is always good to hear about good people getting good things.
YAY for Madeline! What a beautiful story.
I've been lurking for a while but this post has brought me out of hiding 😉
I, like a lot of people, know of similar situations that didn't have such a happy ending so glad to read of one that did.
Keep up the good work here
All the best
I'm thankful for great friends and our health!!!

So happy for your friend. What a gift. Adoption is so amazing.
today I am gratful to have my long run done and thankful for my mom who helped with the kids while I did it!
Thanks for dropping by and following B.o.B
I don't have that many followers. You probably noticed that my photo was on that "followers" list, just to pad it out a bit. It's all pretty sad 😉
Anyway, please come to Japan it's something I reckon everyone should do, at least once. I wrote and article for "Runner's Tribe" about it. If you need any more convincing.
By way of reference, I'm a sponsored runner for Ron's "Punk Rock Racing" team. Well, he sent me a cap!
Bye for now
