Welcome Home Baby Shower

Some of my dearest friends hosted a party for Isabella. About 30 girlfriends came and we had so much fun! These women were my main prayer support during our four year journey to adopt. We just laughed, ate and everyone got to meet Isabella. Her little life is such an answer to our prayers!

Here is a photo mosiac from Saturday afternoon. You can click on the collage or any photo to enlarge.



I framed a couple of my favorite pictures below:

So glad you got to have that fun celebration with the ladies who helped you pray Bella Grace home! What a miracle these babies are!
Please stop by our new blog-www.keepingthefaithadoption.blogspot.com to see our new Guatemalan blessing! God is so good-Ariana couldn't come home because God needed her in Heaven, but he sent us baby Ben!
Hope Isabella is adjusting well!

WOW!! A lot has happened since I checked in last. Welcome Home ( a bit belated). So glad it is all going well. The welcome home video had me in tears.

Looks like you have some great friends.

You know, our family settled in easily and quickly as well. I think we are very lucky.

She is just beautiful!!

Congratulations on finally bringing your Isabella home! What a beautiful family you have and I love, love how you decorated her room!! I remember when I brought each of my girls home and I went into their room at night ~ that it almost seemed surreal looking into their cribs and seeing them there! I thank God for them every day.
I have so many hits to my website from yours and I thank you for keeping me on there. My 20 month old Gabriella drags her doll around by the hair. Guess thats a good test for the dolls........
Blessings to you and your family.
