I was working on my computer yesterday evening, inbetween packing and repacking for Africa when I saw an email come in. It was from my sweet friend Lori and I only caught a bit because of how the computer shows the email coming in....I caught the "urgent" in the title and I saw the "ASAP" in the body of the letter. I guess I am feeling in a 'heightened alert' state with heading in less than 36 hours to Uganda, so I thought, "Oh no! What is wrong?"
I quickly opened the email and here's what it said:
Ok girlfriend....look at the attached pic ASAP. We insist that after Uganda and China...you come to Kansas to adopt!! Love Ya! Lori
After reading the letter I thought, "Oh boy, must be an entire family that needs to be adopted...." So I opened the picture and found this:
If y'all remember Lori was once a blog lurker, who came out of the shadows, we became great friends and she and her family came to visit us in October for almost a week. We had an absolute blast with these down to Earth fun-lovin' family who we now have the privilege of calling precious friends.
Our kids now text all the time and have become great friends. Infact earlier yesterday, as a family, we were laughing about something K-man (Lori's husband) said/did while he was here. Wouldn't want to embarass him, so I won't post it, but every few days we laugh and laugh thinking about what he asked us??!? (Peaked your curiousity I bet, but mums the word from me.) =) And for the record, you owe me big time K-man for not telling the world....and I mean BIG TIME!!!
PS....According to Lori, Brendan photoshopped the picture
and worked really hard on it -
but K-man gets the credit as it was all his idea!!
