Month: December 2007
It’s been a great week loving on Angel and helping her get to know her forever family. She’s doing well, each day getting a little more familiar with us. Yesterday our God-child came and spent the day and night with us. He’s 3 1/2 and he is so amazing (he and his family live in FL). My family was also here for our Christmas. Grandma and Grandpa got to hold Belle for the first time and she did pretty well. She’s still pretty fussy unless mommy, daddy or sister are holding her so we’re taking it slow with other family and friends. We had quite the house full with all my family, the kids, our God-child, his brother and grandparents. It was so awesome. Even though it was exhausting I love having people over.
Today is me and Hubby’s five-year anniversary. By the grace of God our marriage has grown stronger and every year has been better than the last. Even though he doesn’t read this very often (where’s the love?) I’ll send this out into blog land: I LOVE YOU HUBBY! YOU ARE AMAZING AND I’M SO BLESSED TO BE MARRIED TO YOU! We were able to sneak away and go to a movie although it wasn’t very romantic. We fed Angel and then she fell asleep. Princess was with her. We rushed to the theatre to catch a matinee (Alvin and the Chipmunks!) and rushed home, the whole while checking our phones and worrying about both our girls! Welcome to reality! Here’s a few pictures of the kids to enjoy.
We pray you made great memories in 2007 and that 2008 brings you closer to the Lord and the ones you love.
Please pray for Tami, Prince’s cousin and a friend of ours. Tami’s husband Scott helped Hubby and I with Sunday school last year and I’ve often went to Tami for advice on adoption as they have two adopted children. We just found out a few months ago that Tami and Prince are cousins on his mom’s side.
Anyway, Tami just found out she has thyroid cancer. Please pray for healing for Tami and peace and comfort for her, Scott and their two kids.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6
Crying, burping, poopy baby – what else could we ask for! It’s been a good day loving on Angel, helping her get to know us. She’s already a mama’s girl so I’ve been trying my hardest not to hog her so Hubby can get some good bonding time.
We’ll be taking a bloggy break to have some much needed time with our new baby. Thanks again for your prayers. We know it was a miracle that Angel is home with us already.
Have a very blessed Christmas.
What a journey this has been. I write this as Missy tends to a fussy baby girl needing a diaper change. Who would have thought that we would have a child so quickly, let alone by Christmas. These last 2 weeks have been such a whirlwind for us. The emails, the phone calls, hurry up and wait, she might make it home for Christmas, she might not….and now, our baby girl is home. Missy and I have a new baby daughter. The Prince and Princess have a baby sister.
What a journey this has been? The journey is just beginning. This stage is ending but another has just begun. As our family moves forward we look to God to reveal what wonders He has in store for us. This blessing will forever change our lives. Thank you to everyone that has supported us through kind words, thoughts and prayers. Please continue to pray for us and that the initial transition to our home would be quick for our Belle.
May God bless you and Merry Christmas to all.
