Just Because I Always Want To Remember....

How I felt at this moment I wanted to type this. The last 48 hours of my life have been the most amazing, scary, joyful, prayerful, uplifting, and crazy hours of my life. In that time, I truly learned what it means to get out of God's way. I learned how much I love my wonderful, amazing husband. I got to see (once again) how much I am blessed with my three biological children and how loving and accepting that they can be. I got to see how God takes your heart that is already so full of love and adds another spot for another child. I got to see that even though I didn't give physical birth to Mary Elizabeth, that I already love her like I did. I am so blessed. So incredibly blessed.

Of course I don't have any biological children, but I do not think there is any way I could love Norah more if I had birthed her myself.

It is an amazing thing. You find out about a precious child and instantly God knits you together.

You're Mary Elizabeth's parents now and she is a blessed little girl. So happy for y'all. Can't wait to walk this road with you.

BREA!!!!! I don't know what I missed, but I just visited, and all of a sudden you have another daughter!

I AM SO STINKIN' HAPPY FOR YOU...as soon as I opened your blog, I burst into tears...MoMo came in and asked me if they were happy tears or sad tears. I showed her the pictures of Mary Elizabeth and she said, "OH, Those are happy tears, aren't they, Mommy???!!!"

Love, Love, Love...
