There truly aren't words to describe...

the moment when your child (whom wouldn't even look at you just 4 months ago) gives you your first unsolicited "Oliveyou" or her first unsolicited kiss!  My heart is overflowing with happiness and love tonight!  I know I say it all of the time, but we truly have been blessed.  Our journey hasn't always been easy, but we made it to where we are today and we thank God for that!  He has a wonderful way of giving us strength through the difficult times and puts such amazing people in our lives to help us through the darkest moments of our journeys.  For each one of those people in our lives, we love you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!  We will continue to pray for each one of our adoption friends until your journey is complete!

Nikki, I am so happy for you. I just love hearing all about your family, and how every one is doing...and adjusting. You are just doing a beautiful job....truly someone I can look up to. I am so thankful to have "met" you. I still can't believe how random it was how I came across your blog. It was so the Lord...and I'll be forever grateful for that.

It was random Mer, but I have to say that you've given me more strength in this process than you'll ever know! I thank God for you every day and we pray for V every night! She WILL come home...I just know it! : ) LOTS OF LOVE TO YOU!

It is such a treasure to have earned the trust of these little ones, who have gone through so much in their short lives! What a total joy to hear her say "I love you"!!!
