1 Month Ago Today

It's hard to believe that it's been a month, but one month ago God brought Ed, Julianna and I together as a family. Julianna is the most precious child we could have ever asked for and she is perfect for our family. She is learning and growing every day. She is crawling now - well actually it's an army crawl but she can move all around the house like that. She is also sitting up now from being on her stomach and she is standing a lot with us holding on to her or with her holding on to furniture. She is saying dada, mama, and bye bye. We can ask her where her belly button is and she will pull up her shirt and pat her belly. We have also found two things she won't eat - turnip greens and cabbage. She also loves music and will start dancing when she hears it. It seems like every day almost she is learning new things.

If you are in the adoption process, please remember that there is a reason and a plan for why you are waiting. Jesus has a plan. Isaiah 55:8-9 says "For My thoughts are not your thoughts nor are your ways My ways. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are my ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts." If it would have been up to us, we would have had a child 5 or 10 years ago. But God had a perfect plan to bring us Julianna. I can honestly say that she was WORTH THE WAIT!
