Favorite Adoption story book...

I don't know about you but I am constantly on the search for fabulous adoption story books to read to my kids. I want to fill our library with books that represent our family (I think I'm gonna write our own ;). I had started losing hope that the perfect one existed but then I found this one.......

I Wished for You by Marianne Richmond:

Get your kleenex out...SERIOUSLY!!! I still can't read this book to my kiddos without crying. The author has done the most beautiful, beautiful job capturing this sweet one's adoption story. All the way down to "what about the mama who grew me in her tummy..." I have read many adoption story books and I have yet to find one that can compare to this sweet book! It truly is a MUST HAVE for adoptive families.

"Of all the children in the whole world, God picked you for me."

On the mend?!?!?

I tell ya...when you have 5 kids, it can take a LONG time for everyone to be healthy!

~Thanksgiving...6 out 7 of us got the flu...took 2 weeks for it to pass then we went right into.....

~Baby S got scarlet fever
~Mommy got really bad strep. throat...OUCH!!
~Brother T got a fever..was in bed for 24 hours
~Daddy not feeling good..spent most of the day in bed
~Brother I had/has persistent nasty boogies
~Baby C got a nasty ear infection..given Amoxicillin
~TODAY!!!! Guess C is allergic to penicillin (nasty itchy body rash)
~Baby C still has ear infection (even after 5 days of amoxicillin) now on Zithromax
~So far big sissy Tr. is staying healthy!

Praying we are getting past this...I MISS church soooooooooo bad!!!!!!!!! These are all LIGHT afflictions. So many precious friends come to mind as I grumble about our silly aliments. We LOVE you guys are praying continually!!!
