Sunday Snapshot {Avery}

It's been six months....

Six Months!!!

Since this little stinker has been with us!

Holy Moly!!!

I have seen so much growth from this precious one....

She has blossomed.

She has {slowly} allowed us to 'see' glimpses of her true self in the past few months...

And now, she seems as though she is trusting us enough....perhaps even trusting herself enough....
to be....well, just her!

Avery -

My sweet, sweet daughter!

Avery -

a child who loves to sing & dance....
a child who is very passionate...
a child whose smile lights up my world!

Avery -

who now looks to me for encouragement...
who wraps her arms around me first thing in the morning when she awakes...
who 'needs' me to sleep with her at night!

Avery -

so precious in every way....
so courageous, brave, & strong....
so willing to love!!!!

She now initiates kisses & hugs.
She now will be first to say 'Lub you'!

Avery -

A child of God!
A child who knows Jesus!
A child who loves the Lord!

Avery, my sweet, sweet Avery!!!
How I love this girl of mine!!

Ni Hao Y'all

  4. I can't believe your darling girl has been home for 6 months! Not only has she blossomed physically (her hair!) - it sounds like she is really letting down her guard & loving being loved. it is amazing what God does to these babies' hearts!!!
