Plug for Peder Eide

Okay, so the concert was Thursday night, and it was so well done. Peder Eide has a wonderful adoption story, and such a passion for adoption and orphan awareness. He is the father of 5, three bio kids and two adopted, the most recent one, a beautiful little boy from Ethiopia. My kind of guy!

So, if anyone out there has thoughts about doing their own benefit/orphan awareness concert, I would definitely recommend contacting him. His music is great and he is a ton of fun. Lots of kids were at the concert, too, and if our own kids are a measuring stick, the kids love him. We got 2 of his CD's and the kids have been singing his music all over the house for the last 2 days.

Hey, on a side note, if you have a spare minute, you are welcome to swing by and help us rake up our leaves....

Sweet video, and good job with the event. We especially enjoyed the video showed there (do you have a link?) and the families speaking. We were moved. Sorry we didn't get a chance to talk! Our FAVORITE part of the whole night was watching your 5 kids interact... and I lost it watching you stroking your newest daughter's hair! I can't wait. Jen (and Jeff)

Okay, Duh, I did not pick up a CD. I am so bummed. My kids have not stopped singing "Taste and See".

Great video. I wish we had something like that to go to. Whenever I think about you guys I am in awe of the amazing plan God has for us, if we can only be open to it. His plan is so much more than we can even imagine. I hope the wait is bearable.
