I call her... MY ANNA !
















I have known Anna for over 6 years now ... She was in 5th grade when we meet. She is beautiful, loves the Lord, is a super Athlete, and loves my family to death. She played volleyball for me for 4 years and now I get the privilege of coaching her in basketball as well. I think of her like my little sister. She really is just part of our family. She goes everywhere with me and just loves on my crazy kids and helps me not to lose any of them in a public setting ...lol .... She helps me pick up the house and organize it about once a month and she just fits in my family !!! I just want to say thanks to Anna for loving us so well and for being such a fabulously godly young lady ... I will just fall apart when she graduates from high school and moves away to play college ball. I am asking God to give her a scholarship to Trevecca or Belmont, so she can stay close by and I can continue to watch her play ball and she can hang out by the pool with me in the summers ... She has prayed for my sweet Maggie from day one and I know she will just be like the best big sister to her !!!!

Love Ya Bunches Anna ....P.S. If you have ever been around me long enough, you have probably meet this amazing young woman !!!! God thank you for the treasure of Anna and for allowing her to be in all our lives in the Oatsvall house !!!

She is a beautiful girl! She sounds like our Jessica-- what I would do without Jessie:) Moody and I were talking the other day about how God has faithfully provided some wonderful, godly people to love on our kids through the years! Jess will be traveling with us to Ethiopia to pick up the kids.

Talked to Corinne this am, we are still trying to figure out a new date. I don't want it to be while you are in China. I need to wait so I can give Maggie kisses:)

You just brought back a ton of memories for me for a family I used to take care of while in high school & college. I went every where with them & learned so much on how to be a great Mom with all the experience. You are a blessing to Anna as much as she is to you.

What a wonderful treasure! That is great that you have someone like that in your life.

I have not been in the blogging world for awhile and have not been able to congratulate you on your travel news, so...CONGRATS! And I think it's awesome that you are traveling with the Shockley's again! Can't wait to read updates from China!

Everybody needs an Anna in their life. I have a relationship like that with my best friends daughter, Kris. You have probably seen her pic on my blog. Mal calls her "Sissy". She is now a Junior in college and we don't get to see her like we used to. So, enjoy all the time in the world now with Anna. She is a pretty girl.
