Mother's Day Weekend

On Friday we mailed another package to our sweet little Allie in China. We sent sunglasses, a couple puzzles, a book, and camera with some snacks for her and for her foster family. On Friday night, we started cleaning up because we were having our families over for lunch after church on Mother's Day. I took a few pics of Emma eating her favorite veggie, corn on the cob.

Saturday evening, Emma went to her first ballet performance. Our wonderful friends, Deb and Russ Bishop's oldest daughter, Lily was a butterfly in a local performance of Anastasia, so we were very excited that we got to see her perform. Emma loved it, and was standing up moving her feet and hands trying to imitate the dancers. Maybe in a year or two, we'll have our own little ballerina!!

On Sunday, we participated in our Parent/Baby Dedication, where we committed in front of the congregation to raise Emma in a Christian home, and where the pastor and congregation committed to be there to help us - it is such a wonderful thing to be children of our Lord, to know that in this world of constant change, one thing always stays the same - His love for all His children. How wonderful it is that He has adopted us to spend eternity with Him. How blessed we are to get just a glimpse of how much He loves us all through our adoption experience.

I have done two short slide shows, one from Friday and Saturday, and one for Mother's Day, Sunday - enjoy the pics...
