Two years ago today...

...we adopted this amazing girl!

How thankful we are that God saw fit to set this precious girl into our family!

  1. I so remember this. You guys posted a great pic of your whole family form that day too.

    wow 2 years.

    God is so good. And she is a beauty!

  2. Oh, yes! I'm gonna find that one and add it! :)

  3. Love it! Love how God builds our families in His way, in His time. Love that girl of yours.

    And oh my. Your baby belly is so gorgeous! I love seeing it here.

    Happy adoption is final anniversary to you guys!

  4. Hi Stacy. Checked out your blog for the first time today. It's inspiring and honest. Hope to be where you are someday in the adoption process. God has blessed us all in so many ways. Thanks for reminding us all we don't have to be perfect to serve God. I've been struggling with the "we're not good enough" do this foster parent and adoption vision that we have. We know it's a lie and some of your posts have reminded us of that. Happy "anniversary ". :)

  5. Thanks, Ame...

    Krista~ Hi! :) Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I'll be praying for you, Krista, as you guys press on. (And you're right: it is SO a lie. None of us are good enough and we don't need to be! God is the good one and He is faithful to show up-- *especially* when we're at our weakest!)

    Love to you, Krista...
