This Thanksgiving I am especially thankful (see post below-watch video) but so is Anna Grace!

At her school this year they made a video and they went around the entire room and asked each child what they were thankful for ; they were saying cookies, m&ms, etc. and then they went to Anna Grace and said, "What are you thankful for?" and she looked at the camera and said "I am thankful for a home."

How amazing is that? She continues to just amazes me. While all the others said cookies she was thankful to have a HOME. God is SO good! I can't imagine a day without Anna Grace and find myself wondering what we did without her! I can not wait to finally have Andrew home!! Double Blessing!

This Thanksgiving I am thankful for
  • My Family
  • Adoption
  • Health
  • Friends
  • a home
  • Anna Grace

Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!!

100 Good Wishes Quilt....

I have a huge favor to ask of you all. As many of you already know we are in the process of adopting our sweet boy from China. A tradition in china is a Bai Jia Bei or 100 Good Wishes Quilt, we plan on creating a Bai Jai Bei for Andrew. We made a 100 Good Wishes quilt for Anna Grace and want to do the same for Andrew!

Here is some history about the Bai Jia Bei or 100 Good Wishes Quilt:

“To welcome and celebrate a new life, there is a tradition in the northern part of China to make a Bai Jia Bei, or 100 Good Wishes Quilt. It is a custom to invite friends and family to contribute a patch of cloth with a wish for the baby. Part of the patch of cloth goes into the quilt for the baby, and the other part of the cloth can go into a creative memory notebook with the wish for the child. The quilt contains the luck, energy, and good wishes from all the families and friends who contributed a piece of fabric. The quilt is then passed down from generation to generation.”

What we need is a 7”x7” square of washable cotton fabric. The fabric can be anything you would like, maybe something that represents adoption to you or something special for Andrew. (Honestly ANYTHING is fine!) Along with this piece of fabric we need a 2”x2” piece of the same fabric attached to a piece of paper that you have either written or typed a wish for Andrew (either is fine!), this can be something personal or a favorite poem, song lyric, quote, bible verse, etc, but it should have a special significance for you. Remember to sign and date the paper and also include your address. This paper will go into his scrapbook and be cherished forever.

If you would like to send a quilt square for Andrew email me at! I would love for anyone to send one! Thank you!

Here is some information that might help you......

  • His name is going to be Andrew Hudson
  • His room is knights and castles (not that it matters)
  • We love the cars theme but ANY fabric will be so cherished!
Again thank you all so much!
