Last Sunday a group of us from our church's orphan ministry, Father's Heart, worked at the Steven Curtis Chapman concert. We specifically were there to answer questions about adoption and help promote his "Show Hope" campaign where money is collected in change buckets and then the funds go toward grants for those going through the adoption process. We had a great time and it was so encouraging to talk to so many other people who feel called to adopt.
Then last Thursday, Emma had a short performance at school with her music class. She sang, played recorder and the xylophone. She was SO nervous (look at pic to the left). She kept looking up at me and I would mime deep breathing so she could try to relax! She did great...look at the concentration going into playing that xylophone.
