Mark, Kate and Charlie

I just wanted to spread the news--my former boss and his wife Kate are getting ready to adopt Number 2! I was around them when they got their first little guy, Charlie, and it was such a neat experience to see. You can tell by the way they look at him, that Charlie is LOVED. And I mean A LOT! He is sweet little boy and they have been amazing parents.
Here's just an example: The first time they left Charlie to go out to dinner, I offered to watch him for Mark. I think it was Kate's birthday so they were going to drive to IF for dinner. I am pretty sure they weren't even gone 3 hours and I think Kate called atleast 3 or 4 times. I didn't mind at all because you knew that she just wanted to know how he was, what he was doing and if he missed her. (I am sure he did!)
The point of this post: Sometimes adoption goes a lot better if you can help them. I know that my little blogging world isn't as large as it could be, but you never know. I put a button on my blog and I will also put a link to their adoption blog HERE. If you know someone or know someone who knows someone that is thinking of giving up their baby for adoption, I would HIGHLY recommend this family! Let me know if you have any prospects! I would love to see them get another baby!

That's terrific news! Being a PRODUCT of adoption, I'm ALL for it! I think it takes very special people to adopt a child into their home. It's evident that your friends, Kate and Mark are special people. I am one of those FIGHTERS when it comes to adoption... I think it's sad when people "feel bad" that I've been adopted or "don't want to be rude, but can I ask a couple of questions?" ARE YOU KIDDIN ME? Of COURSE! I love talking about it, it's NOT rude at all (it's like me asking them, "I don't want to be rude, but is it SOOOO WEIRD being right-handed??? I just couldn't imagine how HARD that would be!!" ridiculous!! Anyway, Becki, sure glad you're supporting this sweet family, they deserve the best!

Becki, I love it. Thanks for posting this for us! And I don't remember calling you that many times the first time we went out!! Total separation anxiety. Sorry! And remember when we ran to my house in the rain to shut the windows in Charlie's newly painted nursery! I miss seeing you. Hope things are going good with your honey!
