I'm so happy for them!

Wednesday, December 18, 2013


Good morning everyone! I wanted to pop in today to share a very special card. I made this one for a fellow teacher and her husband. They have long battled with infertility. I truly believe that God is always with us even through difficult times. 

Well, he had a plan for these two. He has blessed them with not only one child, but two. They have adopted a brother and sister who needed a good home. 

Adoption is a beautiful thing. The important thing to remember is that having parents that love you, whether biological or chosen, is a tremendous gift. They are going to be awesome parents to these two beautiful children.

I just love this quote that I found online...

They may not have my eyes, they may not have my smile, but they have all my heart.

I used the Babycakes collection from Close to My Heart for this one. I just love the colors and the adorable giraffe.

I'm playing along in the Seize the Sketch challenge!


Be sure to stop back by later on this week. I've got a fun New Year's project to show ya!
