Mia's 7th Ballerina Birthday Party

Our Little Mia turned 7!!!!! Every year I am amazed at how fast time flies. I treasure these days as gifts from the Lord with my children. Mia has a huge personality and full of Joy. She has a Big laugh that makes you chuckle. 

She thought she wanted to go to Ballet class so our friend who is in a ballet company and is a ballet teacher came to give Mia, Cora and Payton (the girl's cousin) a ballet class in our living room. Mia loved dressing like a ballerina and the attention, but she wasn't into the ballet learning. This was good to know before we signed her up for ballet. :) She said she will stick to Golf. LOL She still had fun and we are so thankful to Faith for coming out to make Mia's day special.

Mia also had a tall order for a cake she saw in my Grandma's Woman's World. LOL  She carried that book around for months asking her daddy to make her the tall Kitty Cat Cake. I baked a strawberry layer cake and Joe did the decorating. I am the cake baker and he is the cake decorator. Her cake turned out super cute. One of my favorites.

Happy Birthday to our sweet and spunky little 7 year old!!!!! We love to Heaven and Back!!!!

Living Outside The Box

When we started this adoption process we knew we wanted to be logged in and we even expanded on our special needs we were okay with. But you know God.............He has a way of working and it isn't always what we put in our box of parameters. We had checked off all the special needs we thought we could handle so why did we fall in love with the face of this precious one that didn't fall in those. I remember the Wednesday I saw his face. I knew!!!!! I asked if we could see his file. You see he was special focus and they were advocating for him. They told me there were a lot of inquiries and that they would let us know in a few days. I gave it to God and said Lord if he is ours we will be the family that gets his file. That very next day sometime after lunch the phone rang and we were the furthest family along in the process since we were logged in already. So we got his file!!!!!! We knew nothing about anything listed in his file, but at the same time had peace. We had a pediatric neurologist look at his file and she broke down all the big scary words for us so we could understand what might be going on. We got videos of him a few days later and it confirmed even more that this precious little one was suppose to be in our family. The box we put up came down when we saw his face. God knew and knows that he will carry us through this adoption. Even when we get home we know he will be faithful to guide us. We are so thankful God called us to get outside the box. We are coming sweet Teagan James Leggio!!!!!!
