Do you know why Selah is smiling ?







I have been waiting for some time now to announce this ....It is with great joy I share with you all our 3 new children who just today have the Briggs name ! When we adopted Selah last year we knew that her mom had given birth to 3 sets of twins. Selah had a twin sister- Rita and the youngest 2 brothers who are 2 were not available. Her 4 yr old brothers were adopted and came home the same time we brought our 3 home in June :)  We told Kofi we would love to adopt them if they ever did become available. When he told us we got our dossier together and today we had court and passed. We are praising God again for 3 more blessings. I have known about this for months and was about to bust.

I am also home from the hospital and doing very well....The Lord has given me the best medicine ever today with the addition of these 3. There names for know are Samuel, Sampson and Rita BRIGGS. Of course the last name is what matters the most :)

The top picture was taken of Selah when we told her we were adopting them- after we asked her if she wanted us to. The next 3 are the pictures taken outside of the court today. The last 3 are the "referral" pictures. We met them on our pick up trip in June and now feel so blessed to be their momma and daddy.
