A different kind of not "me" Monday

This Monday is going to not be about "me" at all.  Instead I would like to talk about a "friend" of mine.  The ONLY reason I put the word friend in quotes is because I have never met Vanessa in real life, I know her through the PR.  But from what I know of her she is a wonderful, caring, loving woman that would do anything for anybody.  I am grateful for the opportunity to be able to call her a friend.  Matter of fact she has no clue that I am typing this.  So Vanessa I really hope that you don't mind, and if you do please tell me and I will take it down ok? 
The reason I am writting about Vanessa on not me Monday is because some things are just NOT fair for her and her family right now.  That being said I realize they are firm believers in God and that they know he has a plan for them.  But still I would like for their story to go out to a few more ears, just in case you know somebody that might be able to help them ok? 
They would love nothing more then to adopt a baby...yes they have been blessed with two children, but they would still love to give a child that needs a loving home one also.  I took this "It's not fair" blurb from Vanessa's blog.  Why because it's NOT her Monday!!! 

It's Not Fair

Today I'm feeling melancholy concerning our adoption. I am so very happy when I hear that others have been able to adopt, yet it is my human nature to automatically feel a little down for myself.

It's not fair:

*that money talks
*that we don't have the funds to automatically say yes to any situation
*that we aren't as "marketable" because we already have a little babe at homw.
*that we have it so strongly on our hearts to adopt, yet nothing has happened
*that we have been waiting a year and a half now

In the back on my mind, I know that God has the perfect plan and the perfect child waiting just for us. But today, I just want to scream, cry and shout that it is not fair!   ''

I have been thinking about your blog, Vanessa for the last few days.  Everybody there is a link back to her blog over to the left.  Please if you believe in prayer to so, if not keep them in your thoughts.  Thanks!
