Thoughts on 2nd Mother's Day (May 13, 2012) & Gotcha Day Celebration (May 8, 2012)

Happy Mother's Day!
I can't believe it has been a year that we have had our precious Grace in our lives!  She is a blessing beyond our wildest dreams.  This Mother's Day is so special, and it is amazing to look back and see how far God has brought us as a family.  One year ago, I was thrilled beyond words because we had our baby, yet there were difficulties because Grace was still grieving the loss of her foster mom which is an amazing testament to Grace's heart.  This year has been a journey into the heart of Grace, and I can stand before you today and tell you that just this morning, my darling daughter informed me that she LOVES Mommy and Daddy and then called us "my Mommy and my Daddy"!  When I came downstairs this morning, even though she had already seen me numerous times this morning, she still came running up to me yelling "Mommy, Mommy" and threw her chubby little arms around my neck to give me a big hug and kiss.  What a sweet and precious gift to receive from God on this 2nd Mother's Day!

"Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him." (Psalm 127:3 NIV)

Gotcha Day - May 8, 2012

Here is a quick look back over the past year in pictures!  I was interrupted in the middle of putting up these pictures, by the sweetest baby in the world to give me my Mother's Day card.  I'm trying not to cry right now! :)
