Our wonderful Call






Three wonderful years ago we got an amazing call!!!!! And the next day we got 3 pictures of the most beautiful little girl we had ever laid eyes on. There are no words that describe how I felt and I still get butterflies thinking about it.
I loved her long before I ever saw her face. But I wondered if it would be the same depth of love that I felt with Dalton. God had been so gracious to me already, was I testing him? I prayed for the same love, feelings and emotions I already knew with him but what if I didn't? Could I love another child as I did him? She deserved the very best, what if I couldn't give it to her? Its funny now looking back that I would even have these questions. Her smile, her personality, her funny things she says and does. It all just amazes me and leaves me in awe that one little tiny being could have me so wrapped around her little tiny finger and not even know it. I thank the Lord each and every day he blesses me to be a mom, there is nothing else any better!

What a beautiful post about your beautiful daughter. You have such a way with words Marla. I so wish I knew you then, so we could celebrate with you 3 years ago. I can just see how excited you were once you saw her for the first time.

Wow...the first referral picture is just precious...just look at that smile! You must have been over the moon in love...I know I was in love with Lottie before I ever saw her little face. With Emma Jane I fell in her love with her picture the moment I saw her as a waiting child on the internet...God moves in so many ways...uniting families all over the world....just incredible!
