Oh, we are so counting our blessings this Thanksgiving.
It is such a blessing to see how happy our little one is.
It seems our little Mary Alan has quite a love for flowers. She shares a common love of them with her Foster Mother and her new Mother. It looks like I am going to have a little gardening helper in the Spring. We are going to have a really good time taking our time, smelling the flowers and taking in all of God's creation. We are going to have so much fun!!
She and her little friend Melissa are talking over the situation.
We are going to have to work on the eating part though. Not a good idea.
How about this pink cheetah-print jacket. She is already quite a little girly girl. She has no idea what she is in for when she comes to the Colbert house. Pink, pink, and some more pink!!! I love the way she seems to perfectly match all of the flowers in each picture too.
They also say she is very attached to her Foster Mother, Joan, which I am so thankful for. It is such a blessing she is getting so much love and attention. Because of her attachment to her Foster Mother, she will probably go through a time of grieving which we are totally expecting. This is a good thing though, in the long run, because it shows she was very loved and formed a bond with her caregiver. This is very important.
I am so grateful to New Day Foster Home for providing such an incredible life for our little girl. They have given her such a loving and sweet environment and it is only by God's grace she is there. This place is truly a God-send and a blessing to so many children. Where else would you find a precious little one smelling flowers at her orphanage? Wow!!
If you have any question where you may want to give this Christmas, please go to New Day's website and see how you can help. I have a link to it on the side of my blog. They have many different ways to help and the money is greatly appreciated.
Have a Very Happy Thanksgiving!!
