We were surprised and blessed





























Paul and I were treated to a birthday lunch out with our dear friends, Helen and Dick... when we got home we were surprised with about 100 people celebrating our adoption of Gracie and Andrew.....
Our kids and friends gave us an adoption shower. We had wonderful food, a 24 question and answer game ( because we will have 24 children), a special song sung and played for us by Abraham and so much fellowship.
My heart was full of joy and my eyes were tearful as we celebrated the blessing of these 2 precious children the Lord has given Paul and me. I am a momma who certainly appreciated the gifts but, it was so heartwarming to have so many around us who feel these 2 are special... as special as they are to Paul and I. Thank you all for sharing with us as we give "birth" to Gracie and Andrew.

Isn't it wonderful when people understand your desire? You are truly blessed with your beautiful family and friends!

Now a practical question: are the photo decorations on a cake really edible?

Hevel... yes they are. Our sons Joseph and Ben actually work at Sam's club and we use their bakery. Joseph took the pictures into the bakery and they copy them. We like how the cakes taste too and they are very reasonable.
