Grapes are kind of like olives, right?




Are you laughing too?


Hard to believe last year she had just come home from Ethiopia. That we had waited so long for her to arrive. How we asked you to pray for us and to join us in our wait.

So glad God called us to adoption, for if He hadn't, we would have missed this little bundle of laughs. Can't wait to see what the next adoption will deposit into our hearts.

Wow - what an inspiration you are!!!!! You are living one of my dreams....I've always wanted to adopt. (Just haven't been sure if it was best as a single!) Just stumbled across your blog. Do you know Leslie Ludy....?? If not, she would love to meet you! Also, how about www.danitaschildren.org?? Maybe your next child could be from Haiti. You are probably already thinking about this, huh?! Anyway, looks like you have LOTS of friends, but I'd love to be your friend too. Though a stranger, you've already INSPIRED me!!!!

Blessings, Melodious Echo

What a sweet creative girl! She is so happy and safe, loved for sure. I am eager for my husband to come home so I can show him your post from today. He will love the expression, and grapes and olives are at or near the very very top of his food preference list! His fingers wouldn't fit so cutely in either one, however!!

Also, this is a blog you may enjoy: http://urbanservant.blogspot.com/ Much in common with you and your wonderful family. Believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, multiple adoptions, etc. FYI - Dorothy (the blogger) and her family are currently in the midst of a move. I believe they are originally from Seattle, but came to Minnesota because of a job for Dad. They have just left their home here(Minneapolis) and have arrived in Colorado Springs. This is another job change for the Daddy. Their next official home isn't quite available yet, so they are temporarily in a space made available by the dad's new employer. Another way Blogger Dorothy is like you is - inspiring! Enjoy! Diane of the north

Psalm 18:3 Your wife shall be as a fuitful vine by the sides of they house; your children like olive, oops, grape plants around they table!

Thanks for sharing her smiles. Ya know, there are days when we all need them.

Blessings to you, Kimmie!

She really is just adorable. My boys are enjoying grapes at the moment as well - they are in season, so are very cheap.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend
Renata :)
