Our Sweet Princess' Baptism!

Not only did we celebrate Father's Day at our house today, but we also celebrated our sweet Kate's baptism! It made perfect sense for our beautiful girl to be baptized on Father's Day... It was Father's Day 2 years ago that we filled out the application to adopt a second time and it was Father's Day weekend last year that we saw our precious girl for the first time... it was perfect to be able to dedicate our girl to our Father who created her and made all those perfect plans for her, on this Father's Day.

I had to smile when Kate let out a little giggle and huge smile once the water was dripped on her head, as if to say, "Look at me! I am a child of God!" She was so good and I just have to say that AnnaClaire behaved SO well and was so still and quiet while we were on the stage. Afterwards, we went to PF Changs and the boys, Mom, and I split lunch for our Father's Day gift to Dad. Kate ate her best meal EVER in the almost 8 months that we've had her... she probably gained a pound with that one lunch! :)

And so I will pray for my baby girl... that one day when she is a little older, she will see the need for our Savior in her life and that she will except Him and truly be adopted once again... into her ETERNAL family. (Not everyone gets to say that they have been adopted TWICE!) But for now, we will enjoy praying for her and entrusting her into His care until she can make that important decision for herself!

Enjoy the pictures of our sweet little princess! I am so, so thankful that she is a part of our family and that she has the chance to grow up where she will learn about Jesus and how much he adores her!

I really wanted a good one of her with Mom and Dad, which didn't happen...
