An Unexpected Blessing

National Adoption Month at the Library

As you know, a few days ago I placed posters in four of our local libraries about “National Adoption Month.” It took me two days to get to all of the libraries and as I was driving home from the last library I was thinking about whether all of the effort of making the posters and traveling to each library to deliver them would actually make a difference to anyone. I was not expecting much of anything in return but, did it on the hope that it would make a difference for someone.

When I got home I checked my email and found this from the first library I delivered the display to:


Thanks so much for the beautiful display you created!  I’m sorry it was so crazy last night & we didn’t get more of a chance to chat.  I’m attaching a couple pictures of the display we’ve put up, although there are more adoption books we’ve put out that aren’t in the pictures.  My husband & I are actually waiting to be matched right now, so adoption is a cause dear to my heart!  :)


I wrote Heather back and happily shared about our adoption, offered to go to lunch with her and be a supportive friend whenever she needs it.

It was a tender mercy from God, letting me know that the efforts I made will make a difference.

    Thanks Shelley! I prepped everything after Julia went to bed and delivered them while she was napping. My Mom was great to take care of her for me.
