Welcome Diana

 So excited to share our newest contributor to No Hands But Ours, a longtime friend of mine and mom to four beautiful daughters. Diana blogs at First a Pearl, then Three Rubies, please join us in welcoming her to NHBO!


What a fun blessing for me to be asked to contribute here at NBHO.

Adoption began for us with our first dossier in 2005. That small leap of faith plunged us into the most amazing journey of our lives. We say to this day if anyone ever told us we would have four girls, three from China, we would have laughed...Loudly! God's plans never cease to amaze me. So, here I am seven years later with four daughters, three from China. All special, unique and amazing!

In 2007 I gave up my briefcase to carry Ruby Mei's diaper bag, and I have not looked back! Other than a super cool volunteer job with Pearl River Outreach I am blessed to stay home to raise my crazy crew! It is definitely the hardest (and most rewarding) job I have ever had!

So my goal is to add something special here at NBHO! I hope to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone like I did with each adoption!! I promise when you do, the blessings will be plentiful! I look forward to sharing the journey with you wherever you are in your call to adopt!
