Presley is 3!!!

Happy Birthday to our sweet Presley! I can't believe our baby is 3! She is growing up so fast. She now weighs 36 pounds, wears a size 4T-5T and size 10 shoe! She still loves to eat. She has become quite the comedian and loves to make silly faces. We are so blessed to have her in our lives. On this day our thoughts always turn to her China mommy. We wish she could see a glimpse of the beautiful girl that she gave life to. I'm sure she would love to know that the little girl that was born with a cleft without much opportunity has been given all that she could imagine for her precious child! I'm sure she would cry many happy tears if she could only know what good things have happened to her baby girl. Sweet Presley we love you so much!! Happy Birthday to our precious gift from China.

Dear Amy,

I found your blog as well, and I like it a lot. Your page really looks beautiful. I am still a newby in these things and still need to learn a lot. I didn't even know how I could reply on your comment, so this is probably a long way to do it, but I appreciated your comment a lot.

I can tell you, we enjoy it very much to foster the children. I hope you can come over one day to fulfill your dream.

Saying good bye to the kids is hard, although you realize from the beginning that the day will come you have to say good-bye. The love for them is the same as we feel for our own boys. The hardest part for us though is that you are aware of the pain of the child. We do prepare our children in the best way we can, but if the moment is there, they are the ones that loose everything at that moment. We really hope they can understand only a little bit that we give them to their forever parents for their best, and not because we don't love them.
At that moment we have mixed feelings, of course we do miss them, but at the same time, we know the child has now for ever parents, whith whom they can stay forever, that makes us happy at the same time, because that is why we do it all.

I'm so behind on my blogs!

I can't believe how big Presley is! My Maddy will be Six in July and still wears a size 4 (slim), weighs 31 pounds and wears a size 9.5 shoe.

I hope she had a great birthday!

Love all the cool renovations you've done too!
