I dare you not to cry

If you ask our kids about Holly’s cancer they will tell you something like this, “Yes, mommy has cancer, but she has the best kind. The doctors are going to cut it all out, then we can adopt and have more babies!”

We were in the beginning stages of adopting when Holly was diagnosed with cancer. It got pushed onto the back burner, but these two videos reminded me how much it is still very much in our hearts. They both made us cry.

    Oh my goodness, that second video is truly heartbreaking. Is that where you were planning on adopting from?

    And yes, we cried 🙂

    We are talking about adopting from Ethiopia or domestically — which is why both videos hit our hearts. Don’t know if we would adopt from there specifically in Ethiopia (not even sure if you can).
