"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

Oh man, my stomach already hurts just thinking about the Adoption Task Force Meeting today.
If you can, please pray for Mandy and I today at 1:30!

The thought of her and I standing united and speaking about this together gets me so excited.

I love being with Mandy. I love hearing her excitement about this. I can't wait to see her!

The thought of Cooper's story and so many others gets me emotional about today.

The thought of our birth mothers who have been humiliated and dishonored in court, gets me emotional about today.

Please pray that God speaks through us and that all of our hearts are open. Pray that as questions come up we can all converse with walls down and emotions set aside.
Thank you will never be enough for your prayers, support and your emails and notes to the task force.

We'll keep you updated!
**And because no post is complete without pictures of my precious kiddos...**
This is an old picture I found on my camera. Can you believe this? Look at that belly and those thighs! Owen "learning how to ski". I guess we've been talking about Colorado a lot lately and he's excited to learn how to snow ski! How funny is that?
This is what happens when daddy puts the kids down to nap and then falls asleep before they do! I had to get a picture. He slept here for hours! And he had beautiful carpet marks on his face!
Um. She might have seen me use the cell phone a time or two! I love this one because you can tell she's listening!
