Cookout for Little Man

About six weeks ago, JT's cousin Brian and his wife Heather approached JT about having a cookout for us. Well, it all came together and yesterday they hosted a cookout for us at their home just outside of Louisville. Approximately eighty people showed up and we raised lots of moolaaaa...I don't even know how to spell that. God has truly, truly blessed us. Almost all of JT's family came in support of us. Several adoptive, both those with their children here and those waiting, from our agency and another agency came to support us. Then, several of my dear friends from high school, yes high school, made the trip. We are so blessed both in our adoption and those around us!
