Life Stitched Together love…

Just had to share my most favorite thing in Zeke’s nursery and his very first gift…a keepsake I will always treasure made by my friend Megan…

On one side of the quilt is his name. And on the other is his birth country and then a red thread of love all the way across the ocean to us…

It’s a thick quilt weight–and so well made. Megan also makes these with other country appliques–and they would make the sweetest gift for an expecting mommy. The really amazing part is 90% of the proceeds go toward adoption travel and the other 10% goes to a ministry…so 100% of this gift goes to help another one home and ministry Ubuntu Africa!

EVEN if you are not adopting–Megan can personalize quilts however you like with names or whatever you choose. Oh my…if you have a little girl or know a mom expecting a little girl–this is one of my favorite of her recent designs…

You can check out Life Stitched Together right HERE in the ETSY SHOP.



P.S. We have begun the 2 week wait for Article 5! It should be picked up in 2 weeks and then sent to Beijing…then we will wait a couple of more weeks for travel approval. We had a sweet package delivered to his orphanage today! SOOO…today–for the FIRST TIME…he saw pictures of our family. I recorded the book BEFORE we sent it just in case we didn’t get it back (but hopefully we will). SO…*this* is what our little man just got to see TODAY! I translated it in Chinese so the nannies at the orphanage would understand what it said and could translate it for him:). LOVE that he gets to hear our voices! Oh this just melts my heart! (You can purchase this book at any Hallmark!)

Oh my goodness! Love, love, love the applique on the quilt. We had planned on a litte Zeke too, but we got our twin girls instead. We now have two new little guys in our home that we will be adopting through foster care. We plan on changing one of the little guy’s middle name to Ezekiel.

I just love the book. How wonderful; I just teared up listening and imagining him hearing this from his family!

Hello….I love your “i love you ” book GREAT idea! I’m am praying you through and so excited that you are still leaving me foot prints to follow. Not by very much though! Our Article 5 will be picked up on April 23rd and Bell’a care package will be delivered hopefully tomorrow. OH how I would love to be in GZ on the same week. But we are still fundraising and believing. So not sure if that will hold us up any days?? Oh and I know it depends on when we get our US Embassy appointment too. Pray for us…. we will hear back from all three different funding possibles this week. Pretty awesome timing I know. God’s like that. Can wait to share pictures of each of us on the plane and then with our babies in our arms!! Gods love is so precious to us. Talk to you soon! LaKasha
