I had a hard time sleeping last night just thinking of the miracle performed 1 year ago today.

Twas one year ago today that I was on an airplane to Los Angeles to meet Baby Blakely...
One of the below pictures is our sweet angel exactly one year ago today.

One is of her sibling resting in heaven.

And here she is today!

Is she a miracle or WHAT?

I still have a hard time comprehending God's miracles and goodness especially when it comes to this sweet adopted girl. IT ALL HAPPENED SO FAST! The preparation, pregnancy and birth and now she's a big 4 month old girl already.

Thank you Lord for the gift of Baby Blakely, for seeing us fit to be her parents, for allowing us to experience the miracle of pregnancy & child birth. For the donating parents who chose us. For the most wonderful doctor. For allowing us to spread the word about embryo adoption. Thank you for knitting her together in my womb. YOUR WORKS ARE WONDERFUL!

"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and WONDERFULLY MADE; your works are WONDERFUL, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. ALL the days ordained for me were written in your book BEFORE ONE OF THEM CAME TO BE!"
Psalm 139:13-16


  1. Every time I look at Maddie I think of the miracle of it all. Blakely is just gorgeous!!!!

  2. What a wonderful memory to look back and think about! Thank you for sharing this, I needed this today : )

  3. Wow. I can't believe it was a year ago. A miracle in every single way. Thank you for sharing.

  4. I love this post. It is soooo amazing! What a miracle she is. And too cute!

  5. Truly amazing. I was JUST blogging tonight about the same thing! Maybe the Lord is speaking to someone out there reading our blogs! I did go back and add that verse at the end too. It is one of my favorites. Thank you!

  6. I know just what you mean. When I reflect on how our baby came to be, I am awed by the miracle of it all. Blakely is getting so big and what a great smile! Time sure flies, doesn't it?

  7. I just stumbled upon your blog and love it. My husband and I are trying to decide on a clinic for EA. Where did you end up going?
