Dear Sweet Maggie



Is this not the most beautiful head you have ever seen ... I may wear bright Red lip stick and put kisses all over it !!!!

The mountains that we have faced during this adoption have been only grains of sand to the Father. I am beyond thankful to the Father for all of His provisions. He is the ultimate Father to all the fatherless/motherless.

My precious daughter, I can almost feel your touch. I have been praying for you before you were ever ours. I am honored to be your mother and I promise to always walk through life's windy roads with you. You have a heavenly Father and fabulous earthly daddy. He will hold you on his lap and scare all the boys away from you. You have a big brother that is amazing. He will carry you around, protect you and always make sure you are safe around other kids. You also have another brother, who will keep you laughing and always play fun games with you. You are blessed with a sister, who looks just like you. She will share life with you and her toys (not always happy about that). She will understand why you cry now or why you laugh. I am you mother, who already thinks you are just a perfect precious angel from God. We are your forever family and nothing breaks that hold!!!

Update ... Should receive schedule on Monday with exact dates and time of departure and arrival. I think her wound looks great...

24 kind words.:

Oh Gwen, she is so precious. I absolutely love this post. It gave me chills or "Jesus Bumps" as we call it. I can tell how madly in love with her you are. I would be too! She is just so beautiful and she has a beautiful mommy that loves her so much. Your heart is so tender and precious Gwen. God has amazing blessings in store and I can't wait to witness them. Praying for you all.

I don't think I ever noticed before....does part of her scar make a heart on her head??? How precious is that?

I am so excited to see the trip unfold in pictures.
