A is 6 years old!!!

My baby is 6 today. I can't believe it. Where does the time go?
The first two pictures at the top are photos we received when we adopted Amilynn. We did not know her then, but the Lord knew her and He knew that we would one day be her family. I try not to think about those years that she spent waiting for us in China. I trust that our Lord God was watching over her, keeping her safe.
The third photo (the one with the ball) was taken in China, June of 2007 just a day or two after we became a family. She has been such a joy and blessing to our family. I just love watching her grow.
Thank you God for allowing me to be her mommy.

We will be having a party for her next week. We have a Church function to go to today, so I will post pics of her party then.
