2011~ Today


The following quote was taken from Facebook this morning.
Couldn't say it any better...

By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us

reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary.

They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged

for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant

to be shared." - Author unknown

Sweet EllaKate~ we love you with all our heart!!!
Happy Family day sweet girl!!!!!

    Sharon, you inspire and amaze me! You life is so busy and full and yet you still have time to blog so regularly! Maybe one day I will be able to return to blogging more frequently, right now, I'm just trying to keep John Asher off the table! :-)

    Blessing and have a wonderful week!
