A year ago...

Today, I pinned Alice to the floor and chewed on her belly.  What an amazing thing to do with a baby.  It accomplishes two wonderful things at once:
  1. Makes her of the best sounds in the world.
  2. I get to feel her soft, soft skin.
A year ago, I was unsure this would ever happen.

A year ago, I was drowning in paperwork.

A year ago, I was clinging to God's will that He wanted us to go down this road.

A year ago, she was trapped in an orphanage.

A year ago, she had no future. 

A year ago, she had NO idea that having 3 older sisters and 2 older brothers was this much fun. 

A year ago, I had no idea that having 6 children was this much fun.


  1. Wow, it's already been a year!! Praise God for His many blessings!! Happy one year with your beautiful and precious Alice Faith : ) We love you guys!!

  2. Wow, a year already! I'm so grateful to be reading this sweet post. : )

  3. So I know it took us a while to read this but what a beautiful reality check. Time passes so quickly...this life is but a vapor. We need to seize every moment!!!

  4. One year..... makes me wonder what this next year will hold. ~ Grace
