official poll results :-)

Just popping in a moment to announce the closure of our first blog poll! It was fun to watch as everyone voted. Thanks to all who participated!

Here are the final results (also visible at right):

Your blog favorites...

stories of the children, 83%
pictures of the children, 76%
life in Bolivia, 43%
learning what it's like to run a children's home, 43%
reading of missions & missionaries, 40%
learning about adoptions, 20%
(But you who love adoptions are a passionate minority, right? Right!)

Obviously, this was a multiple choice poll. It would be fun to plan one that was NOT multiple choice, hm.....

And to end, a very random picture, but what other picture do you add to a blog post about a poll?

This is from Sunday after church, when lots of us from Casa de Amor ate out with the Holman family. I was shocked to see how tiny the new baby appears when I'm wearing her!

Never mind the "what in the world are you talking about?!" look I'm giving Joe Holman. I've had a lot on my mind lately, what can I say.

Or the bossy finter pointing at Caleb (is he snitching from my Texas Chocolate sheet cake?!)

New baby is still doing great, just now starting to really grow although she still fits in all her newborn clothes. As for me on the other hand, I am so incredibly overwhelmed by an enormous task list with lots of deadlines (to the tune of non stop 16-17 hour days) that I've been too stressed to wear her since Sunday or Monday - would hate to shock her little system!

Back to the race...

If you don't let people vote for multiple things I may not be able to vote! There's no way I could have picked just one on the latest poll!

Jennifer - I love all of your stories. I really do like the adoption stories - probably the best of all!

Your new baby is just so beautiful. You are such a good mommy to her! I love how you wear the little ones when you can. You are giving them the most precious gift - to be held and snuggled and to have that intimate contact from a mother. Without you, they would miss such an important aspect of their early months.

So, from me - THANK YOU for the gift you are giving and HAVE GIVEN to all of the little ones you care for. I pray that you will be strengthened.

God bless you, Jennifer.
