"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

Thankful Thursday

This week we are thankful for one huge prayer has been answered.

Blake accepted a job offer with a group in Tulsa starting in August 2012! I am beyond proud of him for how hard he has worked. After fellowship, he will have worked 14 years to make this dream of his come true. It's amazing for us to see how God orchestrated this job. It's been extremely hard for us to fathom leaving so many wonderful friendships, birthmoms, our agency and my precious precious in-laws as we move to Tulsa. But it's also a HUGE blessing that we will be moving closer to my parents and all 3 of my sisters and 7 cousins for the kids!

Congrats babe...we couldn't be more proud of you!!!

Another blessing this week was the doorbell ringing Monday afternoon to some of our neighbors who had filled our front yard with eggs and gifts for the kids!!!!I am also thankful for the other adoptive mommy blogs that share hair care tips and how to's. I put Sadie's hair in beads for the first time and it was sooo much fun for both of us. I never would have done this if these mama's hadn't shown me how!!!I just love this picture of Sadie at the zoo. Isn't she gorgeous? And her personality keeps Blake and I rolling. She is such a pistol.
