Flat Reed: Foster Family Gifts
A while back we went to Loveless Cafe (one of the 1000 places you are supposed to go before you die). We had been wanting to find something special for the foster and agency gifts, so we thought we might find something there. We were looking around when Abbey spotted these guitar shaped gift baskets. Since we live in Music City USA, it was the perfect basket (By the way ... I have an eerie feeling that I have already blogged about this, if I have, forgive me!).
We filled the basket with goodies and items specific to the Volunteer State and the lady fixed them up nicely. We are going to give one of them to the agency and one of them to the foster family. My mom, Reed's Enna, is also knitting a red afghan for the foster family.
We are so excited. Our flights really came together today. I called the Atlanta office of the airline we were wanting to fly and this nice lady was able to get us a really good price on the flights out. So good, in fact, that we were able to get seats in elite delux class both ways! We are really going to appreciate having that room.
Other people have had a hard time getting flights lately. I am so thankful that ours came together so quickly.
Now, I am going to work on the hotel!
Nearly 3 years ago, when we first decided to start a family, I bought this diaper bag for Abbey for Christmas. It is so hard to believe that we are finally on the brink of using it. I think God was waiting until we were able to put Reed's name on it. He certainly has a plan greater than our own.
