For This Child I Prayed...




The doctors said it couldn't be done. Nope, not without surgery. Not just for me, but for your dad too. They said it would be nearly impossible to have a baby - we would need a miracle!

The night we went to Urgent Care for what we thought was a severe bladder infection turned out to be the greatest night ever. When I walked out into the waiting room I was crying - REALLY crying. Daddy jumped up to meet me thinking something was really really wrong. He soon found out I was crying happy tears.

The whole time I was pregnant I prayed a secret prayer for a baby girl. I longed for a sweet girl to call my own. The night you were born I couldn't believe that I deserved such a gift.

It has been such a joy to watch you grow. You are beautiful inside & out. You are kind, loving & caring. You have a heart for God. I am proud to call you my daughter & I love you! Happy 12th birthday baby girl!

Sweet family :~)

Just want to introduce myself. We're adopting from Haiti, too. Maybe we're neck and neck in the process. Our stuff just finished in translation and should be delivered by Fri or Sat. Then on to the embassy. :~)

Nice to "meet" you and may God bless your journey!
