Grabbing a Hold of Life

It amazes me how quickly these little treasures acclimate to life outside of their orphanage.  In just over a week, everything for my little girl has changed drastically and miraculously she is grabbing hold of this life.  She loves being out, loves eating, playing with her toys, and enjoys new experiences.  We shopped Shaman Island and ate at the famous Lucy's where she enjoyed her first sweet tea.  She commands attention where  ever she goes wearing her squeaky shoes and her smile.  She loves to play on the slide at the hotel and to climb the giant staircase.  She even enjoyed swimming with momma in the hotel pool yesterday.  I am not looking forward to traveling for 24 plus hours beginning tomorrow, but I can't wait to be home.  Seeing this little treasure with her sisters and her daddy will bring much joy to this momma's heart!  Please cover us with prayer beginning Thursday night at 7:00 our time.  We will arrive home Friday at 9:50 PM in Peoria.  Then, life will really begin!


  1. It looks like you have had the most amazing transition with little Anna Mei. Praying you home, friend!

  2. Keeping all of you in prayer!
