Isn't that such a sweet face??
I now have three second cousins (which we refer to as nieces and nephews!), two of them crafted into our family through adoption. Nikki and my cousin Jacob brought home Joshua last year, and another cousin and his wife had their son last September. Even better, we'll have another new baby possibly by Christmas, as my Mississippi cousin's wife is pregnant.
And what's great is that all of these children are in our family. If it weren't for adoption, we would never have gotten to hold Joshua or see his absolutely adorable "cup trick." We would never have prayed fervently for the birthmother of Ashley and Stuart's child or for this child herself. We would have never had the opportunity and blessing to know these sweet babies.
I can't wait to see all these cute little babies playing together at Christmas and to watch them grow up and to see how many more are added to our number. There are six of us grandkids on my mom's side of the family, and I have a feeling there's going to be at least double that number of grandbabies. After all, we're just getting started!
But today we're going to rejoice in Ashley and Stuart's happiness and know that their precious baby girl is going to be raised by Godly, wonderful parents. No kid could want for more.
