I have been wanting to start this blog for awhile and now it's finally happening! This is all happening because of a beautiful baby boy that has captured our hearts. I want to document our journey with him and share the beautiful gift of adoption to all those who come across our blog. The name One Stitch at a Time came to me as I was sitting here knitting. I have been doing a lot of that lately. While we will be able to come up with most of the money toward our adoption, we still need to earn some money to be able to bring our baby boy home. One of the ways we are doing this is through an idea I came up with, which is Scarves for Sean. My goal is to sell 50 of my scarves to earn $1000 toward our adoption expenses. So needless to say, I have been knitting quite a bit since I started this goal.
The idea of one stitch at a time means a lot to me. For one, as I am knitting these scarves, it is one stitch at a time that is bringing us that much closer to being able to hold our son in our arms for the first time. With each stitch I do, we are that much closer. It is also a metaphor for our family though. As we start this journey with Sean, we are growing in so many ways as a family, one stitch at a time. It is my hope that this blog will be here as an inspiration to all those wanting to adopt, for all those who have opened their hearts to special needs adoptions, to all those who have a child or know someone with limb differences... basically, in one way or another, I hope it is an inspiration to all those who visit.
One stitch at a time our family is growing and changing and being blessed in so many ways. When I knit a scarf, it takes awhile but the end result is something beautiful that is both warm and comforting. This is how I feel about our family. One stitch at a time our family is evolving. Our family is growing in so many wonderful ways and in the end, it is our hope that we have created a place of warmth and comfort for our children along the way... one stitch at a time.
