Legacy of an adopted child

Once there were two women who never knew each other

One you do not remember, the other you call Mother

Two different lives shaped to make you one
One became your guiding star, the other became your sun

The first one gave you life, and the second taught you to live it
The first gave you a need for love, the second was there to give it

One gave you a nationality, the other gave you a name
One gave you a talent, the other gave you aim

One gave you emotions, the other calmed your fears
One saw your first sweet smile, the other dried you tears

One made an adoption plan, that was all that she could do
The other prayed for a child, and God led her straight to you.

Now, which of these two women, Are you the product of?
Both, my darling, Both, Just two different types of love.

Just pics and updates

Not to much going on around here. We have finally gotten things in order to have Jazlynn Baptized. We were able to combine that with her birthday so people from out of town only have to come once.. We are very happy about that. Just gonna post some pictures.. Hope you enjoy them.

It has gotten hot here in the upstairs so we had to bring Randi Jo's Guinea pig downstairs. Jazlynn has discovered her and loves to stand and talk to her. so cute.
Finally she will take a bath without screaming. She loves it now.
This is one of Daddy's favorite pictures.. With her little pigtails.
Just being gorgeous.. Can you tell how easily it comes to her.
I took this picture the day she turned 11 months. She is getting so big.
This is Diego. He is the new puppy we bought in March. Little did we know how big he was going to get. He is only 7 months old here in this picture. he is gonna be a monster. The kids named him for the cartoon.. I think it is fitting though since he will be Jazlynn's dog.

I almost always rock Jazlynn to sleep at night.. But sometimes during nap or while I am off she will fall asleep on the floor.. I love taking pics of her sleeping.. Is there anything sweeter than a sleeping baby.
Rough Day!
She is the best.

One Amazing little boy!!!

I was cruising the web the other day and ran into this blog.. What an amazing little boy he is.. I am going to spend the week working with my daycare and my own children and we are going to send him some mail.. Take a min and read up on his blog. There is an address at the top where you can send him a card.. If you have time take a min and mail him a letter to help keep his spirits up. He will need it over the next few months I am sure..
