Abundantly Blessed Again!!

Tim and I are overjoyed to share that we have officially adopted baby "A"!!!

Introducing our newest family member...

She came into our home when she was less than 48 hours old.

God placed her in our home. One of the easiest placements and cases that we have ever experienced.

I learned a new definition of tired but she is so worth it!

We all fell in love with her!

The drugs her bio-mom used while pregnant took there toll on her nervous system for sure.  She pulled her hair out since birth and rocked her body for comfort.  She has had so many anxiety and emotional issues.  She has cried more than any other baby we have ever had in our home, no matter what we have tried and done.  We just have made ourselves available to her, for comfort, thru it all...but... God is doing a work in her and with each passing month, she is having fewer screaming spells and is finding some peace.  

As she becomes more mobile she is becoming happier and less anxious.  She is able to keep busy so the rocking and hair pulling has almost completely stopped.

We were so happy when she had been here a year and celebrated her first birthday!  Aunt "S" made the cake for her special day!
 And these two sisters have become very close over that year!

All of the kids love her so much and have enjoyed her.  We have watched her quickly grow from a newborn to a baby and from a baby to a toddler.  As she grows and can play with all the littles, she has just become one of their gang.

She is a big part of our lives and we love her dearly.

It is our privilege and honor to now call her our daughter.
Tim's mom and a pile of grand kids!

To be entrusted by God to raise Anna-Kate for Him and to His glory.  We are just in awe.

We are watching her blossom and grow up on us.  It is happening so quickly.
God is so good!
There are no words to express the joy we feel at being chosen to be her parents.  We are beyond blessed and very content in the Lord.

Hebrews 2:13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.
