So Grateful




Is it kinda strange that I actually feel sorry for people who don't have adoption in their lives?


I know it seems strange, but being in an adoption where everyone involved has the best interests of the child in mind cannot be beat!


Look at this happy little boy. He has so many people that love him, and he knows it.


The above picture was taken this morning, just before TJ (Ty's birthmom) and Donn (TJ's awesome husband) had to go. We spent an incredible weekend with them playing, reading, talking, eating, touring, laughing, and loving.


My heart is so full today--grateful for this wonderful young woman and her supportive family who gave us a gift we will never be able to repay, and grateful for a loving Heavenly Father who has turned all our sorrows into hope, and pains into joy.

  2. What a blessing! I have a friend that is in the process of adopting their 4th child and it's amazing to me what a spiritual experience it can be. Ty is so blessed to have you and you are blessed to have Ty.
