that face...


...can't imagine my world without it. this is just one of the amazing pics that my friend corinne took during our family photo shoot today.

i write this blog post through tears tonight. i often stop by my friend jason's blog to read up on the latest adoption issues and gain his wisdom on such matters. tonight what i found broke my heart. i heard the words of a young woman who (without regret) had chosen to abort her unborn child and claimed, sadly, that she 'needed an abortion' and had no other options. i couldn't help but think about how different the world would be if lucy's birthmother had the same mentality...if she had bought into the lie that at the age of 15 there was no option for her but to terminate her pregnancy. that would mean no lucy and that is UNIMAGINABLE to me.

look at that face... when you do you'll not only see one of my greatest joys...you'll see the result of a courageous teenage girl who understood the truth about life and out of great love made a decision that would change all of our lives for the better...

...praying God would change the hearts of many so that they might see the beauty of adoption as we have...
