Happy Referral Day for Miss Emma

Goodness, I can't believe this slipped my mind! Was about to head off to bed for some reading when I checked my email and had a note from a friend reminding our group that today is the anniversary of our referrals.

This marks the 5th year since we received the call about little Miss Emma!

To read the details of that day, click here:


Who would have ever thought that little chunky monkey would have these dimples and sparkly eyes? Her paperwork was right on the mark though as far as her personality. It said something along the lines of "she shows strong preference" .... mmmhmmm, that's a very nice way of putting it!

The Lord certainly poured out a whole heap of blessings when he had His hand on matching her paperwork with ours. Amazing, she is simply amazing. She's so full of fun and life and absolutely never meets a stranger. We joke that she knows more people's names in our community than we do. Nothing like having a little goodwill ambassador in your family! Brian was telling me that even our pastor mentioned the other day that we should have Emma out as one of the greeters. She just loves people ... and everyone she meets just loves her too!

Thanks Heather for the reminder!!!

Carolin, I can't beleive it's been 5 years. Emma is such a blessing to all the meet her. She simply ttakes your heart away. We will never forget the first time we met you guys. She was just a small chunky toddler but we all fell in love with her right away. Her smile and sweet soul got us through many years of waiting for our Jenna. I will never forget when Adam said he hopes our Jenna would be like Emma. They are so similar, outgoing, loving, silly and never meeting a stranger. Our families are so blessed. We love you guys!
