Oh my goodness, Emily. your family never ceases to amaze me. I've been following since Anna-Claire came home. What fun it has been to watch your family grow. And what a wonderful thing to share this miracle (truly) of adoption with others. Or rather miracles!!

I'm so grateful to get to share in your journey from afar.
Blessings,
Kathy

You KNOW I had to pick myself up off the floor, right?? Of course, I hadn't been by for a few posts - so Imissed all the hints - you are SO sneaky (in a beautiful, God-fearing way of course!)

Your Grace is beautiful, just like God's grace - I can't wait to hear more about her story and more about how God has called you on this crazy journey - and how you are inspiring so many to live heaven-bound and not bound by this earth!

Congratulations!!!!

OX,
Sara

Oh my goodness, I have been praying for this little girl for quite some time. She stole my heart as she was waiting and have been praying for her to find a family!!!! I saw her file "locked" a little while back and I was so happy. Now my heart just jumped seeing her photo on your blog. To think I actually may get to meet her!!! Yippee Jesus! Can't wait to follow along.
Many Blessings,
Amy
