Adoption Announcement/Thanksgiving Card!

I wish I could mail one of these to every one of ya'll faithful friends who have prayed and prayed and PRAYED our daughter home these past 3 1/2 years!!!  We have been so encouraged and blessed by your love and support over the long, difficult wait for our Caroline Faith.  THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!!!  Although that doesn't even seem adequate!  We are humbled and thankful that you walked with us through our adoption journey, and even now as we have begun our journey as a family of SIX!

And I want to give a HUGE thank you to my sweet friends...Amy, for waiting 3 years to take these precious family pictures that we will treasure forever, Emily of 29:11 Creations for designing the perfect card to capture our hearts this season, and Courtney for the new blog banner that shows how our family has grown!  So blessed by ya'll!  Thank you!!!

Have a wonderful and fun-filled Thanksgiving!  Of course, we are OVERJOYED to have our daughter home with us during this holiday season!  Our cup overflows!!!

We claimed Hebrews 11:1 as the verse we held fast to during our long adoption journey to Caroline Faith.  "Now FAITH is being sure of what we HOPE for and certain of what we do not see."  

God has been so faithful to complete our journey to our daughter, and we are embracing this verse as we begin the next chapter of our lives...

"Let us hold fast the confession of our HOPE without wavering, for He who promised is FAITHFUL."
Hebrews 10:23
