A year ago this month we got to see our daughter in a video...Walk the Wall

I can't believe it was a year ago that we were sent a link with our daughter in the video (click here to see). This year it is again time to raise awareness and funds for orphans in China...here is their 2010 video. I seriously want to get a walk the wall going here in Seattle, and be a part of this great effort!!!

We have a model in the family :)

A photo I took of Faith is on our adoption agencies web site...So excited!  Especially since I have been dabbling in photography and am trying to make a name for myself.  I just took our oldest daughter's senior pictures a few weeks ago and you can view them here if you are interested.  And now we just got news that they are using a photo of Faith I submitted to our adoption agency for their main website.  She is on two pages.  The first is here...and the second is here.  How exciting is that!  I snipped the page to record here on her blog.  But we are just over the moon excited that they choose our sweet Faith.

Families are Forever...

As members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints we believe that our family relationships extend beyond this life.   We were able to take Faith to the temple and have her sealed to us as her parents for time and all eternity.  Our other children who are already sealed to us were able to witness this ordinance.  It was beautiful having all our children in the temple with us all dressed in white.  Quite Heavenly! 


In China when we visited the Buddhist's temple it was also raining that day.  The Buddhists’ believe that when someone is visiting the temple and it rains they are considered distinguished guests.  That is twice in a row we have had rain at temples...our little miss Faith must be something special :)
What are temples...you ask?

Hairy Scary Sundays!

This is my confession... On vacation I forgot to bring a curling iron to do Faith's hair for church...so after her bath I seperated her hair into sections, twisted the sections of hair into little knots, and then rubberbanded those knots into place. She slept on her wet hair and in the morning we undid those knots hoping for some darling curls and instead we got this! Of course we all were laughing and she thought her hair was just beautiful. We on the other hand now know what she would look like with african american hair. Enjoy the photos!
