Thanksgiving Reflections

God has richly blessed our lives...
  • Salvation by grace through faith
  • Our son accepted Christ as his Savior in 2009
  • A marriage of ten years
  • Two wonderful sons
  • Our parents (each set) have been married for 40 years
  • A brother, 2 brother-in-laws, and a father that have served our country in the military
  • Siblings that are serving God and raising their family in service to Christ
  • 11 nieces, 4 nephews and 1 great niece whom we get to see many times each year
  • A church family that encourages, uplifts in prayer, mentors, and inspire us
  • We have stable jobs that allow us to provide for our family
  • Our son has a Christian school to attend and learn values from godly leaders
  • Our youngest son has a daycare with Christian values and loving workers to care for him
  • God has led our family to begin the adoption journey in 2009 and our Annalee will join our family in His timing
  • The adoption process has moved swiftly and smoothly so far
  • God has provided our every need as it has arose in this process

Thank You... God, our heavenly Father, for all Your great blessings...for our wonderful friends, family, even strangers that have and are lifting our family and adoption up in their prayers, many who we may never know, but have bestowed the greatest gift on us...for those who have mentored us in our lives: teachers, accountability partners, friends, and fellow adoptive families that have enriched our lives and provided a path that is much more colorful and smooth than one we would have to traverse all those who have actively supported our adoption through signing forms, taking pictures, writing letters, mentoring us through the steps, donating yard sale items, buying coffee, buying cakes, and just speaking an encouraging all of you we offer our humblest thanks!
The Ragsdale Family
