After high school, I lost touch with one of my very closest friends. We lived in separate states, had busy lives, and grew apart.
Eleven years later, God was like– Not so fast, ladies.
Lisa came back into my life with the help of Divine Intervention and the great and powerful Internet. I am so thankful that we reconnected. Turns out, we still have a thing or two in common– we both married burly hulk-like men, we both left sunny Southern California for the wilds of the eastern coast, and we both know a thing or two about traveling an anything-but-typical mommy road.
So today I’m excited to introduce you to my friend Lisa. I want to share a bit about her life as the mother of two sweeties who came to her family through the blessing of adoption, to show off her handmade goodies, and to let you know how you can support her next adventure!
|The Maxfield Crew: Matt, Caden, Koral, and Lisa|
Aren’t they dapper? Let me tell you something: Koral is 4-years-old and has better fashion sense than I do. She was adopted from the South Pacific Islands of Vanuatu as an infant and became a big sister when two-year-old Caden joined the family from Ethiopia. You’ll notice in the following photos that Caden regularly sports a cheesy grin that could charm the pants off of someone who… really likes to wear pants (I’m not good at sayings, but you get the picture).
If there’s one thing you should know about my friend Lisa, it’s this: she is brave and she is bold. She loves her children in a way that allows her to do things for them that would leave most folks balking.
But everyone needs support. And that’s why I’m asking you to help the Maxfields with their next brave, bold, beautiful plan– to bring home baby-number-three from Ethiopia.
“And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.” Matthew 18:5
