Dim the lights & grab some popcorn...

If you are like me, often when you see video links you don't take the time to watch them. And because of that, if you're like me, it takes about 100 people reposting the same video to make you realize, hmmmm...maybe I should actually watch this.

I'm a little slow, but I finally did watch these videos. And I HIGHLY recommend that you do too. They are soooo good. Just be sure your Kleenex is handy. There are three; I'll introduce each one:

This is an awesome testimony of a guy who was adopted into a trans-racial family. Watch it and be moved.

My friend Kim is selling some great shirts that she designed after seeing the video above. Check it out and see if you don't want one for yourself!

And then I saved my favorite for last. This is the Vogeltanz family's "Gotcha" video, which is the day they picked up their little girl in Ethiopia. But it is soooo much more than a gotcha video. It is the heart cry of so many of us who have or who are adopting, and so beautifully expressed. I have never met this family, but I have a special love for them because they are church planters as well, and they did so with dear friends of Joe and mine from seminary. Watch and be blessed.

And once you've wiped your eyes enough that you can see clearly again...go check out Erica's Africa cookie cutters! They are adorable, cheap, and help fund her adoption! I LOVE mine!! Fun for so much more than just cookies...get yours before they're gone!
