Hundreds of Strangers [But Not Really]
There is something to be said when hundreds of people are standing under the same bright blue sky for the exact same reason:
To promote adoption as a positive option in Iowa.
I was honored to start off the the statewide
Gingerbread Run for Adoption
for the second year in a row.
The 5k raises money to promote adoption in Iowa.
My entire family joined us.
Some of our dear friends (and adoptive-parents-to-be) made it, too.
And you know what
the coolest part was?
It wasn't the prizes or medals or post-race
It was this:
We looped around a beautiful lake on a gorgeous fall day in the company of hundreds of strangers [but not really].
You see, even though we didn't know the people around us, we knew enough to know they were special.
We knew enough to know that we all share a piece of the same heart --
a heart for adoption.
And that's pretty powerful, friends.
That's pretty powerful.
