An Adoption Journey

The Gift

  • For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
  • For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23
  • If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God has raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Romans 10:9

Happy Birthday Sophie

Memorial Day

Dear Family and Friends,
Happy Memorial Day!
It's been too long since I have updated the blog. It's not that I didn't try to, it's just that I had some problems with uploading the pictures and got frustrated with it!
I hope your day is filled with good things as we remember those who have died to give us the freedoms we enjoy today.
Sophie is growing up fast. She has added new words to her vocabulary and now knows where to find her ears in addition to her eyes, nose, belly and mouth. She turned 18 months old yesterday. We have a doctor appointment at the end of the week and I am curious to see how much she has acutally grown in the last month or so.
We went to the nursery today and bought some flowers. I spent more than I had planned but the flowers and plants were just to beautiful. I got a huge hanging planter for the big porch on the side of the house. We got some petunias and a geranium (bright pink) as well.
Sophie and I visited with her great aunt and uncle over the weekend. She got a ride in Uncle Ivan's garden wagon and loved it. She showed them all her tricks and they were properly impressed!
I've decided I can't wait until Sophie is 5 to bring her to Disney World! I talked to my brother about it. They are planning to go there sometime in the Fall next year and if we can swing it, Sophie will be seeing Disney for the first time! She will be nearly 3 years old by then and hopefully be filled with the wonder of it all. Momma can't wait!

Me and my baby!

How much milk do you need for that casserole, Mom?

Me and my buggy!

Momma! If we take a left at South Street that will take us to the park......

Dear Family and Friends,

That's it for now - need some sleep (baby has been getting me up 2-3 times a night for the last week and it's catching up to me!
