My heart feels lighter
after hearing the news that our dear friends have been chosen by ABC to have an Extreme Home Make Over. Their door was knocked on this morning and news traveled fast. We've all been pushing for it for quite some time (but unable to talk about it much, due to confidentiality issues), and we couldn't be more thrilled.

He is my old boss,
as well as a cancer survivor
and a transplant recipient,
and she is one of the kindest and strongest women I've met.
Together they have adopted four beautiful children from Kazakhstan,
two of which have special needs,
and all of which are never without a smile.

The whole lot of them are truly one of the most inspiring families I've ever had the privilege of knowing,
and now they are on their way to Hawaii!

I just love when wonderful things happen to wonderful people.
