On the Day Addise was Born...

I have a number of friends [especially including Maria Lee] that have been diligently praying for Judah and Addise since before we knew their faces or names. At my baby shower last weekend, Maria wondered what we were praying for on the birthdays of our kids. I had no idea...

Judah :: When Judah was born [8 July 2008] we hadn't even started our adoption process. But God knew that he was to be our son. Amazing how God determined how he was to be our son before we even started the process!!! Immeasurably grateful for him on this Thanksgiving Day!

Addise :: I actually posted on our blog on the day she was born [9 February 2010]!! Re-reading that post brought tears to my eyes. It was such a fresh reminder of my LONGING for our children. Read that post HERE.

On this Thanksgiving Day, I am beyond words, immeasurably thankful to be Judah and Addise's momma. It's remarkable to me how much I love 2 little ones whom I've only spent about 10 hours with and barely know! It's grace. It's also a testament how God forms forever families.

Forever grateful...
