Daddy and the Princess...she has it made...he is wrapped!!!
Just this week I have noticed HG is growing taller and it's kinda sad (all of you parents know what I'm talking about...they are growing up way too fast). Jason replied "but just wait for ALL that's in store and all the amazing things to come". He seems to know just what to say and when to say it. Sometimes I find myself lost in a daydream...how, why did God choose ME to be Halle-Grace's mom? Did I really do something so profound/wonderful/amazing to deserve her?? Whatever the reason, I am more than thankful Lord! Adoption is such a beautiful blessing! Many people have asked me to "blog" more about adoption...how to get started, who to call, what to expect.....and I spend a lot of time talking to parents who are thinking about/praying about/starting their journey. Just this past week I had the chance to counsel "R" about the journey she and her husband are beginning. I call her "R" for privacy reasons. For those who have adopted, you all know how things can be, you want to do everything just right and not jeopardize anything! Last summer, I had the opportunity to "walk the entire journey" with a young mom who chose adoption...it was one of the most rewarding, beautiful experiences...to watch her through her pregnancy, and witness the adoptive parents full of joy!!! WOW, it's really hard to put into words. I cried tears of joy and tears of amazement....it's just too beautiful to type and make it real! If you want to know more about Miss Magic's adoption story, I tried my best to capture it as we traveled the road....to the RFE....to Washington, DC....and eventually to Vietnam without the I-600 (signing the paper that stated "I will not return to the US until she receives a visa...even if it's 2 years"....to the joyous homecoming and the daily life/joy/happiness and complete MAGIC that Halle-Grace brings to everyone who meets her! She truly is THE blessing God intended for Jason & I and I am SO thankful that he made this all possible! I can't imagine life without her. She is perfect! She is beautiful! She is smart! She is MY GIRL!
SITTING PRETTY! My little rubberband!
