Down for the Count

On July 13, 2015, Posted by , in Adoption, Adoption Journey, With 26 Comments


My favorite moment of the day was after dinner (she ate and ate and ate…squash, zucchini, pork, rice, cantaloupe…we all literally stared at her for over an hour as she steadily devoured everything on her plate). We gave her a bath, gave her a bottle, and began reading the Scriptures and praying over her. She was asleep within minutes, as were all of my other girls as well. Our arms and hearts are full. Thank you for walking the day’s journey with us. We love and appreciate each of you,
The Baker 6
