Finally some smiles for the camera

Claire has the best temperment, except when the cameral comes out. She is fascinated by the light that comes on before the picture takes, so the smile dissapears. We are having a friend over today. Lily is 17months and has been a regular at our house before Claire was home. Today has been quite an eye opener for me. Lily doesn't want me to hold Claire and vice versa. Who knew jealousy was present before 2 yrs? Claire climbed on the coffee table today and thought she was really hot stuff. She kept trying to get my attention so that she could grin at me. Oh the joys of a stay at home mom.

that's a face EVERY mother would love!!!!

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
