Pay Attention to Me, Mom!
As a couple who has no children, we enjoy a peaceful and quiet household. We can do whatever we want, whenever we want (although we would gladly welcome the interruption of a child!). Right now, our attention can be focused on each other.
But our household is also home to 2 very loving and fun cats. While wrapping presents today (yes, I'm already wrapping Xmas presents-what else do I have to do?) I realized our cat Arthur has decided he needs ALL my attention...he's getting me ready for parenthood!
We have been given a gift from God and are truly blessed to have become parents through adoption. After 6 long years we became parents on February 21, 2009 when our daughter was born. Truly a miracle and worth the wait! We are also blessed with a second daughter, born in Ethiopia, and are waiting for her visa to bring her home to us.
Today I kissed an Angel
Today I kissed an angel I knew it from the start. The first time my angel smiled at me I gave away my heart. Today I kissed an angel This angel child of mine. Though not of my creation My child by God's design. Today I kissed an angel My heart is dancing wild, A family by a miracle Blessed by this angel child.
