Just thought I would share some pictures from this past weekend when we visited Mattie and her family. We had the privilege of going to Mattie's house and sharing in the celebration of Mattie's 12th birthday. Once again I was so touched by this precious family, their hearts and they way the choose to do life. We had a great time at the party and at their beautiful home which they generously opened to my big old family. The kids had a blast and loved seeing a real ranch, riding their horse and even practiced their roping skills. Thank you so much Patterson family for being the way you are! We adore you all!

Mattie raised another $625 towards the Pass It Forward Adoption Fund (Abby's wish). Does this 12 year old girl make you want to jump and shout "Holy cow" or what???

What a great time you must have had at the Pattersons and Mattie's 12th birthday party. It looks like the kind of place anyone would like to live in. God Bless Mattie's heart. She is a very special person.

You are too sweet! So glad y'all were able to make it; you are a blessing to us! We LOVED having y'all here; just wish it could have been longer. And, BTW, money continues to come in for the PIF fund, praise God! Mattie just received a $50 donation from a friend yesterday! That makes $675 for the b-day blessings thus far. Go God!!!
