We have often said that our children are "community children." Our experiences with each one of our babies have been this: 1-we want a baby 2- we wait, hope, and pray 3- friends and family surround us with prayer 4- we get pregnant!
This order of things has shown us over and over that we NEED the body of Christ for our family to grow. We have experienced this in so many ways, and we actually love that we are dependant on Christ and His body to experience life in our family! So...THANK YOU for all of you that have walked with and prayed for us at different parts of our process towards more children. We fully recognize that Jada is here with us because of your faithfulness in prayer. We fully recognize that Mia was with us and we will get to know her one glorious day because of your prayers. And we fully recognize that this new baby Lee is with us now because of your prayers.
Isn't it wonderful that God hears our prayers!?!
On another note...Jada is using the big-girl potty! Yay!!! Last weekend was the first time (which happened to be while "Grammy" Brian's mom was keeping her) and then throughout the week she has been successful! We are so proud! She is really proud of herself. Yesterday she was galloping (chase'ing for all you dancers out there) and she starting singing and chanting "I'm a big girl" over and over. It was great!
And I thought I would add a pic of her sweet profile from church as she was celebrating a friend's birthday...blogs are always better with a pic :)
