I am stealing this from you....

I am also buying Tom's for as many people on my list as I think will wear them. :)

Jennifer said...

Oh my goodness... Toms Shoes... I will never forget the back and forth we had after you commented about going to the grocery store in Toms Shoes and I thought you were talking about your husband's shoes.
Yes, I know better now.
Glad you had fun in Tennessee.

Dear Emily,
I had never even heard of Toms until a month or so ago. One of my friends was wearing some and I thought they were so cute. I went shopping the next week and got two pairs. My favorite of the two are black and say, "Be the change you wish to see in the world." What a terrific reminder for everyone! I will encourage others to buy - not only because they are SOOO comfy that I wear mine almost every day - but because Toms is going to help others with the money that is made. How unusual and heartwarming to know that they are not all hung up on the profit margin - but are concerned about their brothers and sisters in Christ! Thanks for sharing this video!! Also, I continue to check your site for news on Abe - and when I have a free moment from subbing, working concessions, and holiday prep, I'm going to walk over and meet that little munchkin! (And you too of course!) Thanks for replying to my last email - I promise I am totally normal - just a bit kid crazy and mine are growing up TOO FAST!

I am going to add this to my blog as well. Love what they are doing! This is similiar to this disease
I first heard about it from listening to Frances Chan of Cornerstone Church in California. They support the mossy foot cause.

Dear Emily,

Thanks for your comments on my blog and for sharing the video ... cannot wait to buy some Toms Shoes!

It sounds like you girls had an amazing time. I am so glad you were able to come to TN for some fellowship & relaxation. And I can just imagine the sweet reunion with all your "babies" but especially Abe.

I cannot tell you how excited I am to learn about your friends in Hong Kong. Tyler & I were on Island Evangelical's website last weekend while researching churches. What a small world?! We would love an online "introduction" to Brett & Shannon as our move date gets closer (Summer 2009).

It is incredible how I felt an instant connection the first time I visited your blog. I just assumed it was becasue of our shared ties with TN, TX, and adoption. Then we learned about Corrine (and Mary Lauren), Abe and our Sam's diagnosis, and now a Hong Kong connection. I just love how God is revealing more common threads in the tapestry of our blogging friendship!

Kristi J said...
