Woman's World Magazine....Featuring our Family!

Our family is featured in the February 1st issue of Woman's World Magazine....

We are so humbled and honored to be featured in this publication. The story is called, "Grace....Undeserved Blessing."

Take a peek at a copy (Page 40, Kevin says) at your local grocery or retail store and let us know what you think!

Edited to add: If you would like to see the article, send me a email and I will forward you a scanned copy!


  1. What a beautiful family!!
    Thanks for commenting over at my place!

  2. They couldn't have picked a nicer family to profile!!!

  3. Thanks I will for sure go get a copy today. WE were featured in there 2 1/2 yrs ago just a few weeks before we traveled to Columbia for our last two daughers....Down Syndrome is making there way out there through the vision of Woman's World.

  4. Rita, I didn't know that! How cool. Is there any way that I could read it? Yay! Woman's World!

  5. Congrats on your article! My aunt just called my mom to ask if we had seen it, or if I 'knew' you from blogging. Went to RR site and found you there. I have a 6 yr old daughter w/Ds and we have been contemplating adopting through RR.

    You have a beautiful family!

  6. So neat! I'll check it out. And please let Kevin know that I am so sorry I didn't call him when he was in town. We all ended up gettiNG the stomach flu and Polly's surgery was rescheduled. Ugh. Anyway, would love to have him over next time he's in town.

  7. I can't wait to pick up a copy tomorrow morning! We'll be sure to use it to share with my parents when we 'break' the news this week! Go Vikings!

  8. How cool is that! Can't wait to grab a copy tomorrow... so glad they chose you guys! Just think of all the people who will be thinking about adopting after seeing this! Get ready, Andrea! :-)

  9. The disappointing part is that they did not mention Reece's Rainbow. Don't know why...but perhaps people will google Down syndrome and adoption and get RR!

  10. Michelle, How Fun! Thanks for finding us...and blessings on a perhaps adopting in the future. Your daughter is beautiful!

    Gillian...I read on your blog you were sick..Bless your heart! We are continuing to pray for Polly!

  11. I looked for the magazine today at Wal-mart and couldn't find that issue. Did I miss it? The date you gave was the 1st. It's only the 2nd of February. I would love to read the article for myself if you have a way of sending one. How exciting!
