Dancing Our Way Into Winter

Hi friends! We are officially on our way to winter... brrrrr... our house be cold! We've had an eventful few weeks including our VERY FIRST ADOPTION!


Our precious baby girl, "L" went to be with her forever family the last week in April. The placement went smoothly and our sweet girl left the Abba Office fast asleep in her mommy's arms. I was thankful to have the support of our new COO, Lelane, join me for moral support on this very special of days. It has been a bittersweet journey walking our household through our first placement but our Father has been close to each of us... including our toddler who had a few days struggling with the goodbye. 

On the very day that we said our goodbyes to our baby girl "L" our newest blessing was being born! Two weeks later I was able to go and fetch baby girl "T" and bring her home. She is a tiny little button of a girl who is surely going to be a singer one day. She has some serious lung power and is adorably cute with thick curls and wide eyes. We are all enjoying having a new little in our home and thanking God for rescuing our sweet princess!





Our "big" babies continue to grow! Baby P cut his first two bottom teeth this week and is about ready to begin crawling properly and can already manage to roll and scoot himself wherever he so desires! And our all our babies have now started to eat rice cereal and everyone is loving it. All in all everyone is getting so big and mobile!



Our sweet big girl got to have braids put in her hair this month and she LOVES having hair that she can play with, swing around and but clips in. I swear she is 2 going on 20... she thinks she is so grown up! It is a crack up experiencing her growing understanding and vocabulary. She told me recently that it wasn't bedtime, it was rather "16 o'clock"... so funny! She continues to be a very good big sister and can even identify each of our babies by their cries. Please join me in praying that she will be able to spend Christmas in her forever family!


Sorry the words were few but my internet situation continues to be tricky. 

Love you all and am thanking Jesus for your love and support today!

Hugs and Kisses
