These are my 2 beautiful daughters.

One, I gave birth to, and one, God blessed me with through the foster care system and adoption.

They are total and complete sisters.

They love each other.  They play so well together.  They share toys and clothes and secrets….and the disdain of brothers who enter their room without permission.

They read their Bibles together and have impromptu dance parties.

Brooklyn taught Lizzie how to tie her shoes.  Lizzie taught Brooklyn how to be a little more outgoing.

Lizzie was 4 when she came to us.

Brooklyn was 6.

When you foster, you have no idea who will come.  You have no idea the impact the children will have on your home or your family.  You have no idea if your children will like the new ones, or the new ones will like the old ones.  You just kind of have to hope and pray that it will all work out.

And today, we have sisters.

Sisters that love each other completely.

Their smiles are real.


And most certainly…so are mine.

God has been very good to me.
