Celebrating Our Friends' Adoption! Yay! :D

Our friends have been foster parents for the last few years. In March 2011 they started fostering a newborn. Since that time they felt God telling them to adopt their baby boy. Thankfully, after a long journey, God gave their baby boy to them! Yay! Today, we got to celebrate with them in this very momentous occasion. They invited us to go roller skating and then enjoy some lunch. Our kids (and Mom ;) ) had a blast skating...the first time for the girls and Jared!

We praise God for how good and faithful He is! We pray for our friends and their baby boy as they are all one family!

Jared. He did a GREAT JOB skating! He barely fell at all! I think he would've skated all day if we let him - Ha! ;)
What cute centerpieces my friend made! The party theme was the alphabet..."a is for adoption, p is for popcorn, c is for cheese pizza, etc., etc." She made these out of an old, wooden pallet and then grew the grass herself. She said it was super easy and cheap to make!  She even made the cutest banner of pictures of their baby boy and each letter of the alphabet, like "D is for da-da" and then a picture of their baby and Dad or "Z is for zoo" and a picture of their baby at the zoo. Cute! She's so creative!
After a lunch of pizza, popcorn, veggies and dip and juice boxes, our friends had snow cones for everyone. Needless to say, our kids LOVED them! Here, Brielle
Bethany, with a "thumbs up" ;D
And Suzan, not wanting to stop and smile for me ;)
Ryan, Suzan and Baby Boy, thank you SO much for your friendship, for allowing us to care for you, to pray for you through your fostering and adoption journey and now praying for you as dad, mom and son! Thank you for the fun today, that we could joyfully celebrate this occasion with you! We love you guys!

I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and have 14 other medical conditions, and developmental delays.

I wrote this poem
Each of us are Special
Each of us different,
No one is the same
Each of are us are unique in our own way,
Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
Those who of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
It doesn't matter what others say
we are special anyway.
What is forty feet and sings? the school chior
