Seeing the fruits of your labor

To our adoption donor...

Sometimes we touch someone's life, but never realize what a difference we truly made.

Sometimes we do something for someone, but never get to see the end result.

I wanted you to know what a difference you made.

I wanted you to truly see.

I wanted you to know we have not forgotten...

and not a day goes by


that we don't remember

because of you~


this little life is what it is today...

and we are so very, very thankful.





Havyn today...

Oh my goodness, Amy...I just don't even know what to say. That is just unbelievable. It breaks my heart to see her in the first picture, and then just brings a HUGE smile to my face to see her now. It is amazing to see the difference! Praise God that He led you to sweet, precious, beautiful Havyn!

We had a major adoption donor, as well, and are continually in awe of all that the Lord has done through the generosity of a stranger.

Hugs!
