Cuteness ahead

I can't believe that few short years ago this was my brand new baby!! My how time flies!! She is growing into such a beautiful young women. She has had a big life change with obtaining a new sister and having to share the spotlight, and has handled it with grace and understanding. She loves to see her sister grow and learn. She loves to hear about when she did the same things that her sister does at this age. It is hard to see her with her older cousins and fitting in so well, we aren't ready for her to not think that WE hung the moon, but it will happen.

She speaks often of our trip to China and how much she enjoyed all the families we went with. She thinks maybe it is a good idea for HER to adopt from China when the time comes. I told her I thought that was a wonderful idea.

She has taught us so much about parenting and we are better for her being here. Thanks for being such a good kid. We love you.

I feel like we are going to blink our eyes and will be looking at grown up school pictures of Jena and Claire. Keeping my fingers crossed they turn out as well as Hannah! One of the first things Stefanie tells everyone about her trip to China is "I made a new friend named Hannah" This is usually followed by asking me "when are we going to Texas?"

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..

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
