Great for him...but Mommy's a little sad!
he's had my heart since day one...
He's talked about this day for weeks, so there will be
great rejoicing and celebration in the Woodard house today.
I feel like he was born, I blinked, and now he's such a big boy.
His middle name is Samuel,
and our prayer has always been that Quinn, like Samuel
in Scripture, will hear and know God's voice with greater
intimacy every passing day.
He is smart, funny, talented,
compassionate and Lego obsessed.
and Mama's boy
Happy birthday Quinn Samuel.
We love you Bubs!

Time to pull out the ol' VHS and reminisce -
Family, friends, tons of middle schoolers,
(we worked in the Jr. High youth group @ the time)
and the obligatory Steve Green's
"Household of Faith" being sung.
For better (Mainly Brian)
For worse (Usually me)
For richer (Um....not so much)
and poorer (not compared to the majority of others in the world!)
The birth and salvation experiences of three children
and the adoption of our new little treasure.
A Honda with over 200,000 miles on it
A blind 13 yr. old dog
God's overflowing grace and blessing
Wouldn't trade this journey for anything.
Is it just me, or do we look 12?
glamorous bangles on the sleeves.
the "end-of-80's big hairstyles" and the evidence that
my fetish for bangles made it's appearance on the bridesmaid dresses.
Notice the train - I wanted to be Princess Diana.

The man was stuck by the the apparent futility of the task. There were far too many starfish. Many of them were sure to perish. As he approached the person continued the task of picking up starfish one by one and throwing them into the surf.
As he came up to the person he said, "You must be crazy. There are thousands of miles of beach covered with starfish. You can't possibly make a difference." The person looked at the man. He then stooped down and pick up one more starfish and threw it back into the ocean. He turned back to the man and said, "It sure made a difference to that one!"

Today was a day that has been tucked away in my heart and mind for 3 1/2 years - the day we were able to dedicate our new daughter. It was an even more special occasion as every staff family at CrossRoads was able to dedicate their new little answers to prayer also! Let me just say that it was one fine looking group of babies -precious! I know it was a joy for Steve to be able to pray over two of his own grandchildren!
God spoke personally to me today and I felt His presence so heavily. On the way to church a scripture was read on the radio that we quoted over and over during our wait.
He can move the mountains.
My God is mighty to save!
