Happy Birthday Princess...

Our precious Kyalynn Da Seul turns 6 years old today! God blessed us so richly by bringing you into our hearts and our home. We couldn't imagine life without you, precious! You have a heart that loves to worship Jesus and daddy and I love to watch you lifting your hands to Him in worship, or dancing all over the place. You make our hearts sing. For all the giggles yet to come, the sentences you are trying so hard to speak, and the determination to overcome any obstacle in your path we are so very, very proud you are our daughter. God sure knew what He was doing when He led us to you! Thank you Father God for this amazing, beautiful gift of a girl. We are humbled and honored to be her parents.

Happy, happy birthday Kyalynn!! We love you higher than the mountains, deeper than the oceans, more than you will ever, ever know!!

Needing A Favor, Please!!.....

CVS Pharmacy is running a contest thru March 1st about all the ways people help others. I wrote and submitted our adoption story last night and am asking you to please go vote for us. The grand prize winner and 9 others will get large cash prizes and it would truly help us in paying off our incredible adoption debt.
Here's the website www.forallthewaysyoucare.com and our story is titled "Blessed Beyond Measure". If you click on the "Mark as favorite" tab it will add your vote to our tally and prayerfully, propel us to winning a prize.
Thanks so very much!!!

You Are Not Going To Believe This....

Extreme Home Makeover is here! Well, not here really, but right over the mountain! They have been working since last Friday and the family is scheduled to come home tomorrow between 2-3 PM. We tried to drive over last weekend but they have the road barricaded. Bummer! They are running shuttles back and forth and we were going to go today but it was pouring rain so....guess we'll have to wait until it airs in January. My sister-in-law has already invited us over to her house to watch it. I am not braving the crowds of people tomorrow with my 4 little ones to say "Move that bus". Now, that wouldbe insanity!!

I am so excited for the family! Apparently the theme of this years season is "Community Heroes" and this family is very involved in the special needs community. They have 3 sons and 2 are autistic. Very well deserving!

Again I say what a great show and what a blessi…

Adoption Month...Reece's Rainbow

Reece's Rainbow is an International Down Syndrome Orphan Ministry. Their website features children from all over that have various special needs with a focus on Down Syndrome. I have followed the story of several families who have adopted children from this website and it's amazing the difference in these children when they are "home" and loved.

The website is loaded with lots of resources, pictures of waiting children, and special projects to benefit and bless the children and this ministry. Check them out at www.reecesrainbow.com

All this month the Reece's Rainbow Blog will be featuring families that have adopted special needs children. Make sure you have a tissue handy (or maybe it's just me!) but I read these stories and just cry. Mostly from happiness that these often overlooked children now are living in homes where they are valued, appreciated and so loved.

Each child is "fearfully and wonderfully made" no matter what society says! Go and ch…
