Y’all, I am so happy and excited to share with you are FIRST family photo since we adopted Sania Louise!
Can you believe I am a mom to five kiddos?! Say wha?!
Friends, I cannot tell you how much my mind has been going over and over the past year and a half of our life, since we met our little girl.
How in the world did this happen to us? How was a sweet little Latvian girl born to another lady 9 years ago, and now she calls me mom? How did our worlds come together? How does she look so much like a Hutcherson? :) How do we love her as if she was always ours?
How do my boys sit spellbound in the presence of our pink little princess? Watching the way they love her just melts my heart. And Cy….don’t even get me started. That man is head over heals in love with his little girl. Cutest thing I have ever seen!
So how in the world did a little girl in Latvia, who needed a family, find our family in America, who needed a little girl?
God, y’all. Plain and simple. God.
Only God can orchestra a miracle like this. Only God can put the love in our hearts for her as if we’ve never known life without her. Only God can heal her broken places and make her whole.
I have never been more confident and sure of my faith in God as I am right now. Every time I look in her eyes, I see a miracle. An absolute miracle from the loving hand of God. I hope you see it too.
And one of the ways that I know this little girl is mine….she is as crazy as the rest of us!! My sister took these pictures of us, and let me tell you that it was not easy getting pictures of the seven of us behaving. Especially Sania Louise and Eli!
She is loud, dramatic, and emotional, just like her mama!
Every time I see the picture below, I hear myself saying, “Lord, help me.”
Friends, I love my crazy life. Every single bit of it. The hard times and the good times. And I am so truly blessed to be able to share it with you.
I pray you have the most wonderful Christmas ever!!!
