Ella Grace & Tripp

YUCK - I have been down and out with the stomach flu!  I am feeling much better today but feeling very weak.  I am so thankful this happened while still here at home and not while traveling.  Phew!!!! 

While not feeling well - I thought a lot about ELLA GRACE - how that poor sweet little princess must feel while enduring all her treatments.  I couldn't take 8 hours of feeling nauseous!!!  How do these children do it????  And then  I thought about TRIPP too.  All those nasty blisters consuming his precious little body - his eyes, his belly, every inch - Yet he Smiles!!!!  These 2 beautiful babes have taught me so much.  They have more courage than I will ever even know - never mind experience.  I Love these 2 little ones - And I ask you to please KEEP them in your prayers.  Both of these children have Amazing families and the toughest of warriors for a MOM!!!  Please visit the blogs of these families - I promise you will be quickly reminded of the true meaning of LOVE!!!!!! 

We leave in 14 days to start the official adoption process of Isabelle - I can't even believe we are so close.  Oh my, Oh my, Oh my!!!!!  I am so very grateful - I am so excited - I am so glad GOD chose us for this beautiful little girl!!!!!!!

We are so truly BLESSED!!!!!  THANK YOU GOD!!!!!!!


  1. Awww...thanks once again for the shout out. But believe me, I think you are quite the Rock Star mom yourself. Look at all those lives you have saved and given a warm, safe and loving home. I can't believe you leave in 2 weeks. Who is staying with the other kids while you are gone?

  2. Ella is a little star! We had the opportunity to meet her last week and she is so sweet.

    I can't believe you leave in 2 weeks!

  3. I am SOOOO excited for you! I've been out of the blog world for the last few weeks and just saw that you are traveling soon! YEAH!! Can't wait for you to meet your sweetie pie.
