Miss Julia

Yesterday I cried.

Not once but several times.

The good kind of cry. 

The overwhelmed with emotion cry.

It was good.  It was healing.

I want to share but not today. 

Later - another day -when it isn't quite as overwhelming.

When I can find the words.

Today I am resting.  Sitting with Miss Julia.   Cuddling her.  Holding her.  Stealing kisses.  Rejoicing that she is here.  Safe.  Loved.  Gaining weight.  Rejoicing because for a brief time I even got to hold her brother.  He even let me steal kisses from him.  Adopted from the same place.  Another Aaron.  My cup overflows.

Tomorrow - two boys - two different countries - two courts.  Please pray. 


  1. What an emotional time for you and yet such an incredible time, loving on two little ones. Praying for both adoption situations. Hugs

  2. I wish I could hold and kiss Miss Julia!

  3. What a Blessing! He loves you so much! If you go again, Please, give Julia a kiss from me. Hugs to You, as well! (I think YOU need a Daughter! You know, to have another girl in your home!)

  4. Please give Julia a hug from this Arky granny who has followed their story for a long time now. I wish I was closer so I could help rock and comfort her. I would be so glad to help.


Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
