Today is Fingerprint Day for Jennie and Marci! I wonder if I should bake a cake for the occasion? I can't believe all that we have to go through to get this adoption thing going!! Roger is going to go tomorrow morning. We can only go between 7:30 AM to 4 PM so it's kind of hard for him to get there during working hours.

I am trying to write something either on my blog or in a journal every day regarding our lives and adoption. I would like to know what we were doing and how were were feeling... JUST IN CASE our little girl isn't born yet...on the day that she is born. If she is already born, I've been praying for her and thinking about her all the time...kind of like a mother who is wanting to be pregnant or is pregnant already loves her child even though it isn't here yet. It's kind of a strange feeling to be so infatuated with a little person you know nothing about.

Yesterday was our oldest daughter's birthday. (Roger's daughter, Abi.) I love the relationship we have together. Not quite "mom" but not unlike "mom" either. She is mommy to Seraphina and expecting Gabe in January. She is VERY much supportive of our adoption!

I'm very grateful for the relationships I have in my family. I am blessed.

I have lots to get done today and Little Miss Seraphina arrives here shortly. I'm sure she is expecting her cookie she asked for late last night. I promised her she could have it today because Mommy and Daddy said she didn't need any more last night! She is such a cutie!!

Blessing to you all!



  1. Glad to hear from you on our blog! Feel free to e-mail or facebook us about anything going on in your adoption. That is the GREATEST blessing about having a blog- the connections and support! :)

  2. Hi Beth, I will continue to have you in my prayers about your adoption. I wish you and your family the best. I know you are a great mom because I can sense your kind spirit through your blog.
    Love ya!

  3. I think your idea of blogging something every day like that is really cool. :-)
