Not Flesh of My Flesh...

"Not flesh of my flesh
Nor bone of my bone,
But still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
You didn't grow under my heart,
But in it
."



Guess whose Home Study was finally approved today?

I am so happy for you, Lianna. I don't know if I've ever actually commented on here before but I've been following your blog for a while. Our first granddaughter is adopted and has blessed our family beyond our wildest dreams. She is so special. I look forward to following your journey to parenthood.

Congratulations on your homestudy approval. May the path to your child be swift and filled with joy. We just finalized our adoption. He is definitely a blessing to our family. Here is a little quote that was sent to us about our adoption.
Blessings to the both of you.

The Gift of Life

We didn't give you the gift of life
But in our hearts we know.
The love we feel is deep and real
As if it had been so.

For us to have each other,
it's like a dream come true!
No, we didn't give you
the gift of life.
God and life gave us the gift of you.
