Where does the time go? I really wish I could say. This time two years ago, I was a nervous wreck wondering how in the world I was EVER going to love another little girl as much as I had fallen in love with Gracelyn. I worried that I would not be able to fully give myself to another person because I had so fully given myself to her. But you know what? God in His goodness and kindness and wisdom, streaches our hearts and allows us to love even more. I am so very very thankful for Anabelle Kate. I am thankful that she is who she is. I often worry and stew over the fact that she is SO different! And that, she is! But I praise God for her and for the gift that she is to our family. She is a sweet determined little booger and I love her so! So, as I look forward to Saturday and celebrating her specail day, I find myself humbled and amazed that God would choose me to be her mom. I do know that she is mine on loan and only for such a short while. Oh Lord, thank you for giving me the gift of Anabelle! I pray that you would draw her to yourself and cause her to love you with all of her heart for all of her days! Help me to always point her to you and to hold her loosely! I love you Lord and pray in Jesus name, Amen.
