My first Sunday snapshot...Claire

This is my first "shot" at Sunday snapshot.  I am going to highlight Claire our middle child.

This was our first glimps of our girl.  We were blown away.  She is named after my mother-in-law and my grandmother. It was love at first sight.

Our girl has found her family


She is always ready with a smile


She loves to have a good time


She is truly gorgeous

She is soooo thankful for everything!!

And then there is this...

And thanks to God...she is all ours.

We love her so much it is palpable.  She was our LONG awaited sibling for Hannah and another sweet blessing from God.  She will always be our princess daughter and the one who wants to teach and not do.  I see great things in her future.  I just don't want her future to come too soon....I would like to hold onto her toddler hood a little longer.

Ni Hao Y'all
Head on over and see all the other Sunday snapshots.  It is amazing what you will learn

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

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
