EVENT DATE Oct 31, 2015

THE STORY:

From Richie and Lyda . . . . .

Wow WHAT A DAY! Our hearts are just bursting right now...so much love and so much support and JOY was shared today during a rather ludicrous event! The weather couldn't have been much worse for a 5k. But you wouldn't know it by the MANY happy smiling (dripping) faces gathered under a few ez up tents! We feel so loved and so thankful for the incredible people that showed up today and ran or walked their hearts out in the pouring rain! Some of you drove for long distances to be here. THANK YOU. We hope you are all spending the rest of the day snuggled up by the wood stove with a good mug of hot cocoa or coffee. :-)  You people are the best and the bravest!  

And to ALL of you who were not able to be there and donated so generously to adoption and in support of us...THANK YOU. We are overwhelmed by your kindness and having your thoughts and prayers for this has been so very encouraging and uplifting and makes a HUGE difference for us both...emotionally and physically! <3 You are all so special and dear to us in your many different ways. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From the Bowes Family . . . . .

Our hearts are overflowing with thanksgiving to the Lord, and for all our AMAZING friends and family!!!  It was such an awesome time of tremendous support and encouragement from our dear family and friends.  Thank you to all of you who came out to show your support for adoption and for Richie and Lydia.  We can't even begin to put into words how much you have blessed us all.  To see you all show up even in the midst of the heavy rain (could we even call it torrential?) to run and walk . . . . wow, our hearts were deeply touched by this expression of love!!!  We have THE BEST family and friends EVER! 

And to all of you who were unable to be there, but were there with us "in spirit" through your generous donations, a tremendous thank you from the bottom of our very, very grateful hearts!  You also, have blessed us beyond measure!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  

With very grateful hearts filled with much JOY!

The Bowes Family

Dear Richie and Lydia, We are excited for what the Lord has laid on your hearts and how He is providing so far! May He continue to provide above and beyond all you could ever hope for (Ephesians 3:20), and may He make all your paths straight with this process (Proverbs 3:5-6). We are praying for you. Love to you both! The Bridges family (Tom, Bea Ann, Christa, and Kate) 1 year ago
