"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Too cute!

I am sorry but I just had to share these pictures.

Seems like I have more pictures of Sadie on here than the boys, but she's about the only one who will sit still enough for me to get a picture of!

We went to Bible study yesterday and I dressed Sadie up. She's just now fitting into clothes instead of just onesies. Thanks to cousin Ragon for letting us use all of your clothes!

Could you not just eat her up?

Cooper went to Sadie's room, got her pacifier (which required him to get the stool to get it out of her crib) and brought it to her. I thought it was priceless. He was so proud of himself!

Sadie's doing great. She's eating like a champ. We're gonna have some serious rolls here before too long!

Our doctor suggested we try and put her to sleep in the bouncy seat for her reflux. I am not sure he wanted me to position her like this, but I figured if she was sleeping next to us while we played I could keep an eye on her. This girl loves to sleep on her tummy, just like my guys did!

I talked to Mommy G yesterday and she's still doing really well. It's just so good to hear her voice and know she's alright. She loved all of the pictures that I took of them (thank goodness!) and has framed several to put around her house.
So I found a picture I could post of Mommy G that wasn't identifying! Everyone always comments on Sadie's fingers and I always talk about how they are her birthmom's fingers...now you can see. I love this picture because I have a feeling I know what Mommy G was thinking here. She was most likely wanting to take in those toes and feet and never forget what they look like or how small they are. It's a scary thought to think that you might forget what your child's toes looked like. I remember when we lost Cooper for that short time, I cried lots of tears over his fingers and toes and hoping I wouldn't forget them. That I wouldn't forget his smell or his nose. Pray we can help capture these things for her!
Please continue to pray for Mommy G and her healing. Also pray for her spiritually and that we may find a way to share our faith with her.

Love you all! Thanks for all of your prayers for us! We are doing great!

Awesome post....in a wierd way so glad you experienced what you did with Cooper. It gave you insight and empathy for what these birthmom's experience. You are a good woman to use the experiences in your life to help you find understanding and love and compassion. I admire you so much!

WHAT A SUGAR BEAR!!!! A girl can't have enough bows. LOVE IT!!

It's great to hear Mommy G is doing well. Isn't it such a great feeling that you just can't explain? We sent off J's letter and about 60+ pictures to her today. I bet she will love them!!

You are such a great mom, Molly! No doubt why God chose you to be Sadie's mommy. :)
