News Flash

Avery took her first steps tonight! We were reading Bible stories before bedtime in Jonathan's room, and she finally got enough courage to take a few steps from Amy to Ben. We were so excited and she walked back and forth between Ben, Amy, and I several times. Jonathan thought it was the best thing ever, I don't know if I have ever seen him smile so big. I am so glad that it happened when we could all be there to cheer her on and make her feel special.

Oh how priceless. You are so blessed to be able to experience these "firsts" with your little ones. "Giving birth" through adoption to a 19-month-old has blessed us in so many ways, and I wouldn't change it for anything...but I have to admit I do sometimes find myself grieving what I missed with my daughter. Enjoy the little blessings!!!
