We have been waiting for her since July but we've had our eye on her for 3 years!
Yep 3 years!
This doll is special for SO many reasons
She is handmade and has a scripture patch on her tummy that can be customized.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
~ Jeremiah 29:11
And we added some very special dates for our family.

I am so sick about what just happened to our blog. ALL of the pictures are GONE. Something crazy happened when I updated our Google + account and all of the pictures are deleted. I am sick about it. 600 pictures are deleted. Yes we have some here and some there but not all in one place and our blog is not in print! Did I mention I am sick about this?

Some old posts will go. I will add back the pictures I can and move forward. So I am off to edit 129 posts.
Here is a sneak peek at our Christmas card picture!
Now that makes me smile.
Take a deep breath-side to side- side to side - breathe in- breathe out.
That's what we tell Lia when she is getting all worked up.
Maybe it will work for me!!
There is even a beautifulwebsitedesigned to go right along with the book.
This is a must have for all families that have been touched by adoption. You won't regret having this book in your collection. I promise. It is by far the best one we have.
Valarie Westfall so eloquently puts into words the journey of adoption and what we as parents and our families felt while searching for the one we adore.
The images created by Richard Cowdrey in this book capture you from cover to cover and are simply beautiful.
We are the parents of a beautiful girl from China. As 1st time parents we wanted to share our journey of adoption and parenthood with our friends and family. Welcome to our every day adventures with Lia! And yes, we really do believe:
EVEN MIRACLES TAKE A LITTLE TIME
