Happy Birthday Ivy Joy

Pin It Today is all about you!!!





 Discovering you, being your mommy, has been life changing. You had ALL of the odds, not just some, but ALL of the odds against you. You did not give up. You never gave up. You have the most strength and determination of anyone I have ever known. I had no idea the immensity of the blessing God was giving us when he gave us you. I have learned more from you in the 2 months  of you being your mommy than I have learned in all of my life. My faith, my trust in God, my walk with Him, all strengthened beyond description because of you!

  The biggest lesson of all is that you belong to God. Not me. He is entrusting me with your life. What an honor. I have learned to trust God in a way I never had before. Your entire life was out of my control, completely. All I could do was pray. I have never prayed more in my entire life. God answered every one of my prayers (even the little ones). And now I have a happy, healthy and amazing little human being.   








Happy Birthday Tiny Angel!


 I will have cake pictures tomorrow. Thanks to the beautiful ladies at our neighborhood caketini, Ivy has a very special cupcake with only 2 grams of fat! And thanks to my sweet friends Chris and Tina Bolton and the amazing Yonana's appliance they got Ivy for her Birthday, she has an endless supply of fat free ice-cream!!!!!

Happy Birthday to your sweet miracle! God is all about the miracles.
We just found out this week after almost 19 years of marriage and 2 China adoptions we were pregnant with an IMPOSSIBLE baby. The baby measured 8 weeks and had no hearbeat. God saw best to take that baby to Heaven to be with Him so that it would be more perfect.
It has been an honor to join you in praying for your sweet Ivy Joy may she continue to grow healthy and beautiful!
