6 months home

I am a little behind in this post, but as you can imagine, life is MUCH busier with two little boys running around. :-) I wouldn't change it for anything, however. Last Friday we had our 6 month post placement visit and it went really well. The boys continue to get smarter all the time (in fact Jeremiah told me the other day that he "knows everything") and they are making great strides physically as well. Time has flown since the boys and I landed at Eppley Airport in Omaha on April 23, 2011 and I can't believe 6 months have gone by already. It seems like just yesterday that we came here, and yet I also can't seem to remember our lives without the boys. It seems like they have been here forever! WE HAVE THE BEST KIDS EVER!!!!!

  1. Oh man... Thomas wants to ride a horse so bad! He would be insanely jealous to see those pictures! All of the pictures are great; can't believe how fast six months has gone by!


Today I Kissed an Angel

Today I kissed an angel. I knew it from the start. The first time my angel smiled at me; I gave away my heart.

Today I kissed an angel; This angel child of mine. Though not of my creation, My child by God's design.

Today I kissed an angel. My heart is dancing wild; Our family, by a miracle; Blessed by our angel child.
