We are blessed.
Last night, my friend Teresa from church and my younger sister Lauren threw our newly adopted daughters --- all three of them!--- an Adoption Shower.
It was unexpected and so precious to me.
My sister Catherine made these beautiful pictures with each of my girls' names on it!
Johanna's smile lets you know how she felt about the whole thing.....
I was and am truly overwhelmed at the outpouring of love from family and friends. We were spoiled with toys, clothes, books, scrapbook supplies, pajamas, gift cards/cash, and much, much more.
As I found a place for all of the new things late last night and re-read the cards.........tears of joy. Not so much for myself, but for our girls.......their hearts are mending, day-by-day, and we are forever grateful to those who come along side us in this process and love our girlies like we do. :)

Me with my four girls!
Brent's sister Rhonda came for the weekend. We all love her and are so thankful for her part in our lives.
With two of my sisters: Catherine on the left, and Lauren on the right. Love you, dearly!!!
Alyssia received her first doll!!! Teresa gave her a little Chinese baby doll. Lyssie just giggled and smiled when she opened it, and then hugged it over and over again.
It was such a lovely outpouring of love on our family. The girls and I are very thankful to each one of you! Special thanks to Teresa, Lauren, and Catherine for the time and hard work they put into giving us such a lovely evening.
