This month has been incredible and has gone by so fast! We had the chance to go to the Families Supporting Adoption National Conference.  It was on the anniversary of our application process starting, it is amazing the journey that we have had from even the last year. We have learned and gained an incredible amount of knowledge, friends and are grateful for this experience. There have been ups and downs in the process and our lives in this last year as well. A lot of changes and more still to come I am sure.

After the Adoption Conference we had the opportunity to go to BYU Education Week! Oh how I love this experience, last year was my first year and I truly hope to continue to go regularly for the rest of my life. The year they had a whole series of classes on Infertility and what a blessing this class was. She brought up important points and helps for dealing with Infertility and how to handle some situations that come up. Oh how I hope they continue to have that class in the future for those who were not able to go this year. 

Summer seems to go by too fast, this year especially. Fall is on the horizon

My how time flies

It has been one year since we have turned in our application and officially started our homestudy at the agency. Oh the things we have learned and the people we have met along the way.

Today is the National Conference and we can think of no better way to celebrate then at the conference.

Special Post: Gibbs day

This is Gibbs
Today is the 5th Annual Gibbs Day.  Have you never heard of Gibbs Day?  What is Gibbs day you ask?
I will tell you what Gibbs Day is the celebration to remind us of when we started dating. It is called Gibbs Day because he helped to facilitate our dating experience. And in honor of him, we celebrate this day each year. August 4. 
How is it he helped? Well I (Chriss) was over at a friends house playing cards, I had left my cell phone on the couch. When Gibbs came over to visit he noticed the cell phone and asked if he could play with it. Sure why not, what could he possibly do with a cell phone, right? Start asking if guys in the address book of the phone were married or single is what he could do. About the time he got to the C's I began to wonder why he was asking. Turns out he was sending them text messages, and Brian responded. He drove an hour and a half to come and visit me. After that night we have been together ever since. 
Gibbs definitely got the ball going, we are appreciative of that and look forward to Gibbs day each year. Here's to you Gibbs!
