When we began our process to adopt Chloe we prayed for many things - one being that God would give us a little girl that would melt right into our family - Wow - God is amazing!! Even though she is seven years younger than our youngest son, she just fits right in and the boys love on her like she's always been with us.
I couldn't resist this photo. Chloe woke up from her nap yesterday (hence the bedhead) and called for the boys - our youngest came in, got in her bed with her, and read Miss Spider's Sunny Patch to her. I don't know too many 8 (almost 9) year olds that would be so willing to read Miss Spider (for the 50th time!!!) - AND give up computer time to do it! We are so blessed - children are such a blessing from the Lord.

I love Miss Spider! It's also a great way to introduce adoption (the first story is about her looking for her mom and finding Miss Beetle Betty who adopts her)Glad to see Chloe has good taste. Peter reads to Caroline only if I push him a little. Oh well. As he gets better at reading I'm sure he will do more.

I love it. My boys are the same way with Katie Mei. I love watching them together. It just makes me weepy when I see that Katie was meant to be our daughter.

When I see my little tribe together, it brings tears to my eyes. Especially when Daniel smiles at Sophia and she just lights up and say's "Hi Daniel"....she was perfectly placed in our family.....just like Chloe! ;)

When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
