9 Months!

Our 1st picture of Sydney!

Sydney now! Having fun with blocks!

I really can't believe it's been 9 months! Last May we submitted our 1st application to AHH and in a record 7 months( although I had been waiting FAR longer than that) we had our sweet girl. The time has really flown by since she has been home. As prepared as we thought we were to become parents to a toddler we just really had no idea the challenges we would face. Sydney's diagnosis of NF1 left us stunned to say the least. I know that God has a special plan for our sweet girl. I can only hope to stand up to the challenge with as much faith and grace as possible. There are days when I feel as though I'm failing miserably.

Speaking of grace, I really miss my Grace. She is now in Ireland. I hope you see this post soon. Know that you are in my thoughts EVERYDAY. I couldn't have done any of this without you.

For those of you that still keep up with the blog, please continue to pray for Sydney and our family, we truly appreciate it!
