We GOTCHA Mary Alan!!!!

One month ago, Mary Alan was placed in our arms to begin her life as a little Colbert. I am sure she had no idea what in the world she had gotten into. Bless her heart!!
 time changes things. Now she is starting to really enjoy her new life and she seems to love being a little Colbert. She is handling her new role just fine!! 

Her finest accomplishment so far is becoming a new member of the Houston Academy Varsity Cheerleaders. The best part is......
she didn't even have to try-out. 

I have described Mary Alan as a little light in our home and she seems to bring a certain brightness into the lives of everyone she comes in contact with. That is what we are called to be a light in a dark world. She already has it figured out.
  “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house." Matthew 5:14and15
Have a Great Day!!
Love in Him,

I lurk on the New Day Foster Home blog and I actually recognized your little one!! She is adorable!! If I could talk my husband into #5 I would go and snatch up little Melissa! Although I know that's not the way it works. Congrats :)

Your family is just so beautiful and I love seeing Mary at home with your family! Isn't it amazing how quickly they settle into their new family life!? Khloe just blossomed once we were home, too! New Day does an amazing job, and we are so blessed to parent a child that was in their care.

I absolutely loved seeing her in her little cheerleading outfit with her big sister ~ so sweet!! It's clear she stole the show! ;)

God bless you and your beautiful family. You truly are a light, just as Mary is in your family! A breath of fresh air and new life, isn't she!?! Just precious!

Blessings & Hugs,
~ Tanya
