Happy Birthday Maggie !! You have brighten our world w/ Jesus!

As I watched this video again, I have to laugh at a couple of things ... Our family picture was taken about a week after Maggie came home and I was completely exhausted, stressed, and sad for all Maggie had experienced in China ... She wasn't sleeping at all and was having tantrums about every hour ... I laugh now because it seemed it would never end ... And today on her birthday, I took her and friend to see Toy Story 3 and she told me like 100xs that "U da best mom dever" and "I luffa you with my whole China heart." ... I tell you it is all worth it !!! And today I needed that as we walk through Joseph / Daisy's adjustments ... I know there is a rainbow at the end filled w/ the SPIRT OF THE LORD !!! I hope you enjoy this video and the look back at my precious girl !!!  SHE TEACHES ME ABOUT SURVIVING AND HOW THE LORD HEALS !!!

RATS! I was having such a good makeup day and it's now happily ruined because I saw this video! Seeing her poor scared, battered face become trusting and smiling.

God is so good.

Happy Birthday, Maggie. Oh Gwen...I remember all our email and blog conversations about our own sleep deprivation and those horrible night terrors. Extra hugs thinking about your sweet Maggie.

Your sweet Maggie has such a special place in so many hearts... on her special day I just want to thank our Lord Jesus for answering our prayers!
Thank You Lord for bringing her home and for healing.... inside and out.
Praying for your family and keep your eyes fixed upon Him... "Not by might, not by power, but by My Spirit says the Lord." You will all get through this together through and in Him.
Love you sister!

Such a sweet favorite picture is of Maggie and your oldest son on the couch all snuggled up. One of the biggest blessings from our first adoption was watching our sons love this new little sister with such unconditional love--I don't think they ever struggled with that and to get to witness that--it was a beautiful thing!!! It continues to be and their anticipation over another sibling coming home brings me such joy!!
