Let's Back Up ...Gotcha Moment ...


We feel asleep here at 6:30 ... We were all tired ... Maggie has cried a lot, but is sleeping so peacefully now ... She will roll over and cuddle with me. Hoping she doesn't wake up in shock at "Where AM I". ... If she does I have another sucker waiting. She is just a dream ... Super dry skin, so I gave her a lotion massage. She did not like taking off the 3 layers of clothing she had on, but we broke through it ... Keep the prayers coming. I feel them !!!! Picture is from the Gotcha Moment!!!!

Dear Gwen,

This picture speaks a thousand words. It's as if I can see her saying your here mom, thanks! One day her sweet little heart will tell you so much more. I am so thankful to the Father that he brought you both together as soon as possible and for all the love that will be shown to her when she meets the rest of the family.

God's protection, sweet peace and abundant love to you Gwen.

I came to know your blog via Lala (mother of Anns Lee). My tears dropped when I read your post about Maggie's adoption.

I was so touched and you are such a wonderful person.
