This precious sweetie pie was eating her food in her high chair and all of a sudden konked out. She has done this a few times and I was so happy to have my camera ready to take this picture.
So often that is the way it happens, your children start crawling, walking or talking and we run for the camera and then it’s done. Too late! You missed that shot again and have to wait and see if she will do it again.
Abby has found her voice and now screams very loud at times of happiness and also when she’s mad. It’s real interesting driving down the road going 40 and having her scream so loud. I still haven’t had the camera around when she does this and can’t wait till we are at a restaurant or at church and she starts screaming.
All of us are enjoying every precious moment, Abby is doing new things everyday. We feel so blessed to share in this child’s life. When we first were thinking of adopting, we just thought of saving a child, and giving her everything she needs. It wasn’t about filling a hole where we needed a child to love or about us. But love, and this sweet little one in our presence has changed some of our feelings.
Abby’s almost 6 months old and I can’t imagine her not being a part of our lives. I can’t imagine not holding her, tickling her and waking up to her coos in the morning. It was amazing in church today, holding Abby and standing next to Aubrey and Lizzy, worshiping and rejoicing.
Aubrey gave me permission to put this on here, she has been lost and felt far away from God. She has been hurt and confused and was trying to live her life the way she wanted to. She was frustrated with everything and was in the worst mood and didn’t even want to be there.
She walked in the door and walked out different. I am so proud of her.
Tears were flowing from all of us. To have my baby Abby in my arms, always, to have my husband playing music again and to be with my girls.
Some times we can mess things up pretty bad and blame God and feel afraid to go to church, because of hurts in the past. Sometimes we go through things and we don’t know why and we are angry at God. And sometimes we need to have him comfort us and show us, I was there with you all along. But knowing Aubrey and Lizzy know the Lord, and Abby will be taught of his love for her, that is what a mom would desire. To see tears in Lizzy’s eyes and to know, just know.
Psalm 46:10 Be still and know that I am God.
More to come later!
