November 5, 2015~My Madeline~ EIGHT years ago today we met this precious child! Madeline had only been home a few days when I took this pic:) my big girl playing in our ongoing outdoor construction:) Adoption I have so many thoughts on what this simple little word means and simple has nothing to do with adoption Adoption is wonderful, hard, beautiful, heart wrenching, soul building, glorious sorrowful, joyful nail biting roller coaster ride the deepest peace you can imagine all encompassing fearful, hopeful Adoption is life plain and simple with Jesus written all over it! I cannot imagine our family without this fiery, deep thinking, hard loving, precious child!! Madeline we love you as big as the sky and the clouds! we thank you for opening our hearts to the miracle of Adoption!
