Over the next several days, Billy and I will be taking turns going out with each one of our children by themselves. We're hoping it will benefit all of us to spend some quality time with each other one on one and will help us be more positive and patient as we count down these last several days before summer break.
Mikea and Daddy got to go first!
They went to the pet store to look at fish, turtles, snakes, kittens, and more. As they were leaving the store Mikea noticed a puddle and said,"I wanna live in water like a fish." Then they devoured ice cream sundaes.
And I mean "devoured". From what I hear, that ice cream didn't last more than a few seconds after this picture was taken.
You can tell by the look on her face how much Mikea enjoyed her special evening with her Daddy. Tonight it's my turn to go out with the Danimal!
The 500 Babies are the children God has graciously blessed us with through the miracle of adoption. We adopted Joseph and Daniel in August 2008 and Mikea in June 2009. We adopted Adrian in December of 2010 and in June of 2011 we made Rebekah a permanent member of our family. (She was born at 28 weeks gestation, weighing only 2 lbs.) Last July we were thrilled to welcome our sixth child to our family: Baby Katherine. We are currently fostering her and hope to adopt later this year. Join me as I chronicle the ups, downs, and in-betweens of life with a houseful of little blessings!
