The Gift of another day!

Last Friday we were so blessed to be able to visit with Levi's donor mom, her new husband, and her kids at the zoo in Chicago.  I think that the highlight animal wise was the polar bear... He was the most playful, happy polar we have ever seen...

It was such a sweet time to get to see each other again.  It has been about a year since we have seen them.
Honestly, I am overwhelmed with God's goodness in bringing our families together to bring Levi life... I don't think it will EVER get old... He is a miracle... and we are so blessed to be a part of it!

Her husband was so sweet to hang with the middle aged kids, Anna, Jojo, and Hope.  Hope took an immediate liking to him and was holding his hand whenever she could.  He was really sweet about it!
She and I sort of hung a few feet back just visiting most of the day.

I was so thankful that Levi let her hold him.  He even snuggled right into her as he got tired:)  (He is at the age where you never know who he will be willing to go to or how much he will fuss.  So I was so grateful that he was sweet with her.)

She is so respectful of me being Levi's mom... Her maturity given the situation continues to amaze me.  It was fun to chat about Levi, but honestly, it is just as much fun just to talk with her about life in general. 

I am so thankful that I can actually call this sweet gal, Levi's biological mom, my dear friend.  She has given us the most amazing gift to enjoy every single day... I could never thank her enough... But God gave me a friend out of the deal too... It is such a sweet gift from God.  Never could I have planned it any better... He is so good!

All the kids hanging out together...
Of course the cotton candy was a big hit:)

Levi's donor mom, Levi, and me:):) 
Anna and Levi's biological sister... Levi looks a lot like her... These 2 were so sweet together.
