365 days ago...

...we saw his face for the first time. Here we are a year later, and it is amazing to me how our lives have changed in the past twelve months. From seeing his little face, to preparing to meet him, to holding him for the first time, and now...to learning more and more about him every day and falling in love with him every minute. It's remarkable the difference a year has made...





To my LID buddies...be encouraged. It truly does happen - take heart and be comforted.


Lord, thank You for sending Quint to us. For knowing so well exactly who we needed and for loving us enough to entrust him to our care. We pray that his life will be a blessing...to those who know him, and more importantly, to You, Father. We know he was Yours before he was ours and that he will always be Your Child first. May we daily be reminded of what a gift we have truly been given ~ In the precious name of Jesus ~ Amen

Oh Christie - that was so beautiful. Happy Referral Anniversary! Quint is so handsome and growing so fast! I feel like it was yesterday that I read the post where you were shopping at the Babies R Us!

A few tears being shed as I remember following your journey to Quint, and have been watching grow. How blessed are all our families to welcome these wonderful children into them. They bring so much to us. Soon another little one willbe added and your joy will just expand. Cannot wait to see that. Linda

Congrats - I can't even imagine what the one year mark must feel like. We're coming up on our 6 month mark and can't even remember what our home was like before Li'l Empress. How exciting for you all to share this milestone together!

Oh my goodness! Thanks for this. Very beautiful. And you are so right, seeing that little office where we first met our kiddo's was wonderful to see again...even if our trips were less than "fun" at times. =) Ok, gotta tell me...did you stay in the very first room at the guesthouse near the front door? That was our room!
And, we have the exact same excersaucer, too!
