April 15th 2008...

Today is the one year mark of when I finally found the couple I had been looking for to be the parents of the child I was carrying.

It's the one year Anniversary of the day I asked Dustin & Andrea to be the parents of sweet little Avery Leigh.



I will never forget that day. It was the day I discovered that God plays a huge part in the adoption process.


It was the first day that I felt the spirit so strongly. It's almost impossible to explain how completely at peace I felt about the whole thing. It was the first day since I discovered that I was pregnant, that I actually felt like I was doing the right thing.


I am still in awe at how perfectly Dustin & Andrea fit the profile of what I was looking for. I have never thought up someone in my head, and then actually found that exact person. They are EXACTLY what I was looking for.


Happy 1 year Dustin & Andrea!
Thank you for everything you do for me! I love you!!

I read the comment on here saying you were the one singing it. I love this song and having adopted our little girl, it was nice to hear someone sing that beautiful song this way. Like I have commented before on here, you seem like such an amazing girl. Thank you for sharing.
