A YEAR AGO TODAY...


A YEAR AGO TODAY WE GOT A PHONE CALL AROUND 10 AM ....
ASKING IF WE COULD PICK UP THIS PRECIOUS PUMPKIN LATER IN THE DAY...
(this was her first car ride home with us... I think she was worn out from having had quite a day)


WAS THIS THE ANSWER TO OUR PRAYERS???


OUR HEARTS WERE OVERJOYED... AND A BIT ANXIOUS TOO:)


SO THAT'S WHAT WE DID...
PILED THE KIDS IN THE CAR,
RAN TO WALMART FOR A CARSEAT...
AND HIT THE TRAIL TO DRIVE 2 HOURS TO PICK UP OUR NEWEST DAUGHTER...
AS MY HEART REFLECTS OVER THE LAST YEAR WITH OUR HOPE... MY HEART IS SO GRATEFUL TO OUR GRACIOUS GOD!
SHE IS THE ANSWER TO MANY HUNDREDS OF PRAYERS...
SHE IS ONE OF THE GREAT DELIGHTS OF MY HEART...

SHE IS A TRUE GIFT AND BLESSING FROM OUR GOD!
THANK YOU LORD FOR OUR HOPE JUBILEE...

Oh Sara,
I cannot believe that it's been a whole year! I will never ever forget getting your phone call - we were at the mall and I was praying out loud. I'm sure it was quite a sight, thankfully I hit the mall approx. one time a year! Oh I could not wait to see this precious angel, and especially see what the Lord would do through you guys. Simply amazing. Way to surrender to the Lord for one of his precious girls who needed you so...
Love to you guys tonight, kiss that goddaughter for me. I simply cannot let too much more time go by before I smoother her myself!

I can't believe it has been a year either! Praising God for her life in yours and for her birth mom who chose life for her. (Hope that makes sense!) Love you!

She is just too cute! Amazing how a phone call can change your life forever....God knew and what a faithful and loving Father He is. Rejoicing with you today.

Wow. Look at how much she has grown! Amazing. And amazing that she's been a part of your family for a whole year. God is so good.

I had like four of your posts starred in my google reader so I could come over and comment, but I have a hard time commenting with one hand sometimes!

I love the ultrasound picture of sweet baby boy. Give him a belly rub for me!

I hope y'all have a great couple of weeks. I'll probably be offline for most of the Christmas season b/c we've got lots of traveling planned (oh, joy). Merry Christmas to all the Hintz's!

love you,
ebe
