Happy Birthday Baby Girl!

She's 1 and and so happy. What a blessing in our lives. God turned our sadness into gladness and we love her so much. This day is filled with joy and celebration!



























We've been working hard at learning to sit for her first birthday. She did it!




Thinking back a year ago today, I get all emotional. I'm lost for words. You never know what tomorrow holds, but we know who holds the future. I can look back at the few pictures we had and smile. I think of all of those God brought around us and I love you all. Little did we need to worry.. I love today.

Yes, she DID do it! I read your comments on this blog, Erin, and I too, am filled with tears of joy and at a loss for words.... God IS good, isn't He? Sometimes I get so frustrated over such stupid little things in life, and then He draws everything back into perspective about what is really important. I thank God for His grace and never-ending love for me. I wish I could be there to celebrate Taylor's special birthday, but hopefully we'll see you soon, right? Love you all!

I am a little behind but Happy Birthday Taylor!! You are simply adorable and I am bummed that it has been so long since we have seen you. But before long, Ella will be done with her treatment and we will be joining you at the Ds playdates. We hope something will work out for us to get together beforehand too.

I too get emotional going back a year and all that day held...you are a special family...YOU are a special mom...who God has gifted with Tay...YOU are a strong woman...You are bold and fearless in the face of difficulty....YOU will continue to be the Mom Tay needs...as well as the mom Hayden and Ava need as well. I sooooo believe in you, beyond words. Cause I know you've got the secret in your heart, Christ. He lives through you every day when you are strong, and he carries you every day when you are weak. Great pics, great video...Well done, good and faithful servant...
Hugs, loves and prayers...
