Meet the Kuykendalls!

Meet the Kuykendall family. This sweet family of four is soon to be a family of five, as they leave in less than a week for their first trip to meet their princess in Ethiopia. Mark is a pastor in Tyler, Texas and I think it would be just rockin' for them to have a huge amount of $ from t-shirt sells to be waiting on them when they return from Ethiopia in a few weeks.
This family's journey to ET began several years ago. They were paperwork ready for an Ethiopian adoption when Marla became pregnant. Putting an international adoption file on hold is not a cheap task and so when the Kuykendalls began the process again, they couldn't just pick up where they left off. Paperwork, fingerprints and fees were due again.
We know that a LOT of people are worried about the costs of adoption. It's one of the biggest questions people ask the hubby and I and the reason why we felt led to Recycle Love. In my quiet time yesterday, I was reading Luke 6. Verse 38 screamed out at me "If you give to others, you will be given a full amount in return. It will be packed down, shaken together, and spilling over into your lap. They way you treat others is the way you will be treated." Just another beautiful reminder that we are to love one another.
Have a beautiful end to your weekend and make sure to come back tomorrow. You never know what day we might choose to have an auction, a giveaway or just a little fun! :)
