One of the most affectionate little girls I know
One of the strongest willed girls I know
One full of sugar and a whole lot of spice (hootspa as we like to call it:)
Smart as all get out
Quite the Little Rascal
More curious than any kid we've ever had before
Loves to dance, rock out in the car, and sing "Thank you Lord!"

I am so thankful that the Lord chose to unexpectedly drop this little girl in our lap the way that He did,  a little over 2 years ago... When we were waiting to adopt, we kept saying, "Lord we want the exact baby/child you have for us... not just one we want now!  But the exact one you have perfectly created for us!" 

Man, that waiting to adopt is really hard... the waiting to know if you will get to keep that child as your own is even harder... But praise God, Hope Jubilee was a part of His plan for our family!  She really is a little love... and has added so much to our lives.  The Lord has blessed us so much through the gift of adoption... we have learned so much... we have so much more to learn.  We are so glad she is ours!

She is so adorable! She was so cute at lunch yesterday. She wanted to play with the salt shakers and poured some salt in her hand and then ate it. Then she tried to eat some off the table too. Thankfully Pam stopped her! Just so cute!!

Love that little girl, love that smirky little smile. You will certainly NEVER be short on laughs with her around! I just finished packing up her little box from us, so will get it out tomorrow. I was planning on heading to bed but glad I stopped here first. Loved seeing that little cutie before I hit the hay! Happy Birthday Miss Three Year old!
